This is the typical case were the place thinks they have a different quality and charge for it, but they Don't have it. Really is not a great Parrilla is a very common one it doesn't worth the high prices!! I went at least 4 times, and is always the same experience. They lack of details and service is short... More

Great food, service and atmosphere. The gnocci was awesome, and the salmon was good too. Enjoyed a generous portion of fresh vegetables. Great place to watch the sunset. Very romantic.

Went to Boca Chica with a group of 7 girls. The staff was very friendly and helpful when it came to ordering. Quiet but nice atmosphere. I ordered the regular trout with veggies on the side and thought it was amazing! My friends ordered other fish and a pasta/rice dish with shrimp. We all LOVED our food! I definitely recommend

It appears to be the norm in the area. You have these great locations by the sea where you can watch the sundown with OK food and high prices. We were 11 and had brotola, calamari, chivito, gnocchi, etc. Nothing was bad but none of the dishes were great. A little more expensive than the surrounding places...

If you're looking for fresh octopus or any other Uruguayan delicacy, this is your spot! We had a sublime afternoon sipping the white sangria and munching tapas as the surf rolled in. It's an easy walk along the promenade by the ocean and our waiter was kind and attentive, Muy Romantico!

We wandered in to Boca Chica for a late lunch. Our server was excellent and we all really enjoyed our meals. The pasta and traditional steak sandwich were particularly good.

It is amazing there are few good places to eat a good Uruguayan meat in Punta del Este. This restaurant is another proposal but very unprofessional. The staff is insufficient and so do not satisfy the client. When I visited the restaurant there was no beer. Could anybody imagine parrilla uruguaia and no beer?

We had been to this place before but under a different name and managment. We were invited to a birthday celebration and were seated at a table for 23 people, and normally you dont get to eat well, but to our surprise, the quality of the meat was superb. I guess it has to do with the expectations you have.... More

We went to Boca Chica late on a week night for a bite to eat, and a beer. It`s on the Punta beachfront close to the marina - look for the anchors as per the photo and it`s close by. Although the beach-side tables are reserved for diners, a space was made for us by the helpful staff. Boca Chica... More
