I ate there two nights, the first one taking the 5-course degustation menu, the second a cazuela mariscos dish with rice. Both choices were excellent. Good selection of Tannat, Uruguay's "national" wine.

It is one of the great restaurants in Montevideo. Its menu is a voyage through the local cousine and its interpretation of typical dishes from other places from around the world.

Difenitely caters for most tastes. From seafood (sushi or not), to parrilla and pastas, everything tasted well, nice sizes. A bit on the expensive side, but not much for what is offered!

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel as being of a higher status than others. May be that defined some expectations, but there were somethings which just weren't right. The staff seemed very unhappy, not a smile between them and I mean all the...More
