We ended up having dinner at Bar Tabare by chance, as the restaurant we had initially chosen turned out to be totally empty with zero atmosphere. By contrast, Bar Tabare was full of people both inside and outside. We were welcomed by the staff who went out of their way to arrange a table outside for us. Service remained friendly... More

Bar Tabare was too busy two years ago for us to dine so we were lucky to try it again. Wonderful food and ambiance! I had the amazing spinach and pumpkin ravioli which I am still thinking about. The evening was perfect--service, warm environment, great location--I wish we had a similar place back home.

We had a tasty dinner & fine wine in the small dining room that was originally a general store. They have music in the main dining area.

Bar Tabaré is a popular hangout for people from all walks. There you can find politicians, artists, musicians and ordinary people. I went there with some family members and everything was great, the food, the drinks, the atmosphere. I just have to say that portions were too little and prices a little high.

I went with my girlfriend for dinner. Service was amazing, the waitress was very polite and helpful. I had a steak which was a bit hard but tasted good and the temperature was right. My girlfriend had the salmon which was very good. Dessert was fine (chocolate cake and orange ice cream). A bit pricy for my taste. But we... More

Phenomenal drinks, great service and delicious food. If you are in the area do stop by. End of discussion - you will not be disappointed. We stopped in after another restaurant in the neighborhood was closed. We got a full tour of the historic building the neighborhood and then we're served amazing food and drinks. Definitely a place worth visiting.

Although slightly off the beaten track, Café Bar Tabare is worth venturing to, as it an atmospheric and welcoming eating and drinking spot. The ravioli I ordered was fresh and tasty, and made a pleasant change from the parilla dinners I had been gorging myself on for the previous couple of nights. Was also nice to be in a restaurant...

What a great first night experience in Montevideo - so good we came back again before leaving. The interior is beautiful; but the second time we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful weather. The wait-staff are charming and helpful. Of course that can be said of everyone in UY. But this is a top recommendation for Montevideo. Be sure to... More

I travel for business in Uruguay and we are always being taken to great restaurants so I love to recommend the ones we've been to and loved. This is one of them. Like many places in Montevideo the setting is always a star and this is no exception. Old world feel. Really good wine list and cocktails as well. I... More
