I normally dont do bad reviews if the food is good but the service was so awful that they deserve just one point. We asked for mint and ginger water without sugar. It had sugar in it, not a lot and only at the bottom but still. The waitress almost threw the glasses on our table and when I asked... More

We had a really excellent meal here. The food was absolutely delicious and so reasonably priced that we were able to afford a dessert and a coffee. They even had an English version of the menu and we were able to sit outside by the sea. Highly recommended

Extremely beautiful view from the harbor, amazing food and the service was very very good! The price wasn't cheap (as everything in Punta del Este), but it's totally worth it!

The food is just right and served simply. You never think you are eating in a high class restaurant, which is all right. The... More

La Marea has seating inside, but much preferred are the tables located outside on the waters edge overlooking the narrow strip of beach. We had ensalada de camarones UY$465 to share to start, followed by wok of verduras camaron and pasta UY$485, merluza azul with salsa de camarones UY$685 and a lettuce, tomato and onion salad UY$210. The fish could... More

We had a wonderful meal at La Marea - grilled fish and vegetables. The cubierto was also excellent. The people were very friendly and that wonderful view, well, there's nothing to say about it, just enjoy. If you are going to Punta del Este, I can definitely recommend a lunch there!

We had a late lunch of paella here with a pitcher of white sangria. It was well-prepared and the service was great.
