We had a very large family wedding at La Huella. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding ! I loved the sushi, cerviche and fantastic lamb chops. Definitely worth the drive from Punta del Este.

Hi weekends are always open. However since they work most during summer time, I would give them a call first. The walk on the beach is amazing all year around. ;-))))
