We ate here as a part of a pre-arranged tour group. Most of us ordered chivito and found the food to be just fine. The desserts offered were phenomenal. Never can have too much dulce de leche. The staff was fun and all hyped up because Uruguay was playing a must-win World Cup game and we arrived just as the... More

Lousy and slow service! Avoid this place. Don't get caught by location or set up. Cutlery was not properly washed. Not worth

When paying with credit card the staff (a girl) put a different amount but the actual bill. When pointed out she void the transaction but never did. She played all stupid. The amount she overcharged was more than triple the amount. Stay away!

I had bought some Buquebus vouchers in advance, wish I hadn't though. Starting with the service which was at best incompetent. Young lads who had no training and no idea really. The drinks order was a shambles I wish I'd just asked for beer. The food was worse. The stater was a Cesar salad which was okay to be fair.... More

Full disclosure - had voucher from buquebus tour, no choice but to dine here. Air conditioning was broken (40c outside). Arrived and all tables were dirty. Seated and gave order in Spanish (don't expect English). The other two dozen people arrive. 20 minutes later had to repeat our order. Everybody else around us got food before we did, ok lost...

I ate here after a walking tour and though the atmosphere in the courtyard was nice, the food and service were not. With the exception of the waitress initially seating us, we had to walk inside to get someone's attention every time we needed a waiter or waitress's help (refill of wine, to order food, to get the check, etc.)...

I had spinach ravioli and my husband had chicken. both not outstanding, but fine. what was outstanding was the dessert of coffee ice cream with a chocolate... More

The food in this restaurant is not fit for dogs. I ordered a parmigiana and my wife the chivito (Uruguayan burger). The food was so bad I had to stop eating after about 3 mouthfuls. Why 3? Well the first mouthful was unavoidable. The second was to confirm that I was not hallucinating, The third was in the forlorn hope... More
