Had dinner this evening at La Fonda del Puertito, a nice, fairly quiet restaurant about 10 minutes drive from our hotel in Punta Carretas. We ordered beer and were brought a small complementary pizza along with a bread basket with olive oil, chimmichura and a carrot relish.

This restaurant has it all, first a very nice ambiance half traditional half trendy, very good and attentive service and a very varied and extensive menu that caters for almost anyone. The food is very good with very good seafood and parrilla with a lot of traditional dishes. Highly recommended

By now, after four weeks of travel in Chile and Uruguay we have tried quite a number of restaurants, and we have had many lovely food experiences. This non-ambitious relatively small restaurant, however, in Pocitos, a beachside suburb of Montevideo beats them all by a good margin.

Autentic Uruguayan food, second to none wine cellar with "hard to find" Uruguayan wines. Reasonably priced, you can enjoy the best of the Uruguayan barbacue, but also very good menu range, from pasta to fish and vegetarian options.
