This restaurant was touted as a delicious place for local fare. Unfortunately the basket of meat turned out to be bucket of discards. The meat was of very poor quality. Sausages were ok, but the various cuts of meat included stomach, some sort of rib fat, gristly steak, etc. Not impressed. To make matters worse the meat had no flavor, sauce or seasoning to help mask the poor cut. Perhaps this is local food for regular folks... I don't see how this is appetizing in any culture.

Very typical Uruguayan parrillada.
Service is very good, parrillada is average to good, and meat always fresh
Good options on side dishes.
Restaurant room is clean and have good space.
Probably the best parrillada in Rivera

the place is well located. i find that the A/C does not cool the restaurant during summer, and given that the huge open hearth grill is inside, be prepared to sweat.
What could be an acceptable atmosphere in winter is spoiled by the TV blaring away Brazilian soap operas, which is on perhaps for the benefit of the staff.
too bad for the atmosphere, because the food and the wine selection are quite good
