Friendly, very laid back atmosphere. Don't miss the rabas (fried squid), bunuelos de alga (seaweed done tempura style...delicious!), and the Napolitano. I'd eat there every day if I could!

We ordered the seafood/fish platter and it is the best we have had in Uruguay so far far. The seaweed is delicious and cooked to perfection. Not too pricy for what you get. We will return

This restaturant is said to be the best in Valizas. We believe it. The location, virtually ON the beach must be a big asset (we were only there two dark evenings). The waiters are very friendly, the food are with big dishes, and their fish...fresh and delicious. The furniture and decoration and music may be up for a discussion, - but so what: this is a place to enjoy the food and location, not a stylish furniture magazine.More

It's a very good choice if you like sea food, also they make some decent drinks. The view is perfect - It's on the beach after all. If you don't mind sand and a few missing/holed wood planks, you're fine. All the staff is very...friendly and pet friendly too. The menu is pretty diverse. The apple + cinnamon crepes with ice cream were a perfect ending to a very tasty lunch. Recommend it without reserve.More

They are in the sea shore, have the best "Canelones de Siri" of the world!! and all kind of fish plates. Try the "buñelos de algas" with a cold beer under the beautiful air of Valizas

This restaurant has a beautiful rustic, shaded wooden deck on the beach facing out to sea. The waitress/owner was so friendly and attentive and the fish I ordered with salsa verde (including "algas" (local seaweed), parsley, basil, garlic and wine) was exquisite. The portion of...fish was very generous too. The original and interesting flavours and combinations on the menu to accompany the freshest of fish look like something from a gourmet restaurant but it is all served with zero pretension with everyone barefoot in their beachwear at lunchtime.More

Proa has a great, well deserved, reputation. The chef Gustavo is a commercial fisherman turned restaurant owner/chef. I don't know how he was as a fisherman but he is a great chef! The staff is wonderful and outside dining is right on the beach. What...a view! Another of my favorite restaurants.More
