My friend João and I was in motorcycle tour in Uruguay. When in Punta we went out looking for a Parrilla but we changed our mind and we decided to try bask cuisine at Leonardo Etxea! Great decision! My Corvina Negra was wonderful! We recommend!

We stopped by for lunch. My Seafood Rissoto was very good. My wife hade Chicken Supreme. Over cooked and smothered in a strange tasteless yellow sauce. Fairly expensive. Two meals a small bottle of wine and a beer. $70 us. Expensive lunch.

Visited twice always for different fish, friendly hosts and non- hectic service (plan some time if restaurant is full), very good wine card and freshest ingredients only

My husband and I loved this restaurant, recommended by TÁ and our hotel. We had appetizers: crabmeat with saffron and the best mussels in green sauce ever; then anchovy a la plancha with garlic and shrimp risotto! It's highly recommended!
