Description: Bahía Restó is a traditional gourmet restaurant located in La Paloma seaside resort since 1936. All the dishes we offer are made by Chef Marta Lujambio who carefully prepares them with ingredientes like fish and shrimp brought by hand craft fishers to the restaurant. Marta also cooks tasty pasta and beef based plates which delight our clientele. We open all year round.

Travelling along the eastern coast of Uruguay on business in the off-season, even when the whether is fine, can be a challenge. Many of the small villages completely close up and it's impossible to find a room or a meal. But in La Paloma, despite the lack of tourists, Bahia Resto remains open, thank goodness! And it just happens to be the most highly recommended restaurant during high-season. I enjoyed the Pollo del Elia, an unusual creation for Uruguay, made with a plum and bacon sauce and glass of a local red wine. My husband and I were the only customers at 10:00 pm on a Friday night, usually the busiest time for dinner in Uruguay. As I said, it's off season and nearly deserted. But service was timely and the food was freshly prepared.

Good food, though a bit overpriced. Portinos are too little as well. Very good place, Easy parking and air conditioning.

Thank you AGSchulz for your comments.
We believe that the prices of the dishes we offer are based on the excelent quality of raw materials and the careful preparation our chef Marta Lujambio and her staff make to each dish.
We hope you can visit us again next time you come to La Paloma.
Bahía Restó, La Paloma.

This hotel-restaurant left me quite unimpressed. The ambiance and decor looked classy but the menu was somewhat sparse and overpriced. The food did not taste or appear half as good as other restaurants and grills that we dined at in Uruguay. They charged $2 extra for the bread, a practice that we encountered nowhere else in the country. The waiter added a 10% tip, which is common in hotel restaurants. This town has a derelict feel and I wouldn't recommend it as a beach resort destination.
