Lunch only, at a counter that seats about 12. You watch the chefs prepare your meal and see locals who have popped in for a bite. The food was delicious, the wine by the glass excellent.

If you are in MVD you cannot miss this restaurant. By far the best "cocina de autor" in ciudad vieja. Tight space (estrecho) with a couple of seats at the bar. Not recommended for larger groups.

It's not easy finding a restaurant like this in Montevideo. You'll definitely find some great flavor and interesting dishes. If you like salads, they have some really good ones. It's casual and price is good for a restaurant like this one. I recommend it and...More

It's an open kitchen where you sit on the counter and see the chefs prepare the delicious food. Constantly changing menu of very carefully chosen ingredients. Great deserts also. Smaller portions, but therefore reasonably priced

Excellent French cuisine. Ideal for a quick and delicious lunch. Not very elegant but the food is excellent
