A friend of mine told me about this place. It was supposed to be a good place to eat. Since we were a party of 8 we called and tried to reserve a table but were told we could not do that and we needed to come and request a table. We arrived to the very small restaurant. The door... More

This restaurant has a small menu of very nicely prepared dishes. I had a seafood tart with a salad (I should have asked for the dressing on the side.. it had way too much oil). My wife had an excellent steak. The wait was long but worth it. Unfortunately the wait has to be outside. The restaurant itself is worth... More

We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and simply had to go there! It is unique: looking like a garage from the outside and an exotic home on the inside with floorlamps, tables and chairs hanging upside-down from the ceiling. We got a cosy table in the front part of the restaurant and ordered bruschetta as starter followed by jabali (boar)... More

Everything about this dining experience was extraordinary, starting with the fact that the restaurant is located in a most unlikely spot, what looks like a garage on a residential block. Once inside, we were instantly struck by how warm and welcoming the place was - candlelight, wonderful smell and the most unexpected decor. The empanada was incredible, salmon crisp and... More

Punta del Este dining was far from what I had been expecting..more conservative and old fashioned lacking ambition but fortunately we went to Si querida. Wow, what a place. In the self conceited maoney making restaurant businessof Punta we found ambition, enthusiasm and creativity here of all the places. Add good humours, playfullness and kindness and you get the whole... More

We were invited to this restaurant by friends and we were really overwhelmed. I don't know how we didn't hear about this great place sooner! From the outside, you would think it was a tiny restaurant. As soon as you walk through the door, it's like the walls magically expand and the interior is actually quite large. We were told... More
