This restaurant used to be a great option in Punta del Este. However, now became one of the worst ones.
Service is terrible. They have many new waiters (just hired for the high season) and they really don't know the menu
I asked lamb and it came raw and when I asked them to cook it a little bit more they brought it burned!!
Very basic side orders like french fries came cold and over cooked.
To make the full experience complete they fully charged the meats we sent back (we didn't eat them) and the prices they charge are much more expensive than much better restaurants in the same category (like Boca Chica, El Puesto, etc)
My best advice: don't waste money and your precious time in this pricy low quality restaurant
