I am starting to have doubts about this place, once among my favorites in the world. Food is still good- smaller portions,it's true. Drinks are a lot worse than in the past, as is the limited wine selection. But service has really deteriorated a lot:...More

The dinning experience includes a private beach as well as all drinks. One can expect an amazing buffet and one of the best Uruguayan style bbq.

cons - they seem to be reducing the alcohol content in the drinks, and the availability of the best food. there was 1 merluza for about 70 people!! pros - the location and atmosphere are still unbeatable.

Another gem from the La Huella people. This all-day excursion isn't cheap, but well worth the money. You take a 2-minute boat ride across a lagoon to a private beach area with a club house for dining. They set up an area for you on...More
