Very pleasant place with many options of beef, the famous Baby beef, Entrecôte, generous portions, excellent quality. Many other options of dishes, pasta, chicken, salads, but in Uruguay you must go for the meet. Not expensive for its quality. Thumbs up!

Best selecties of beef is the key to success of this pretty, italian style restaurant. Try the baby beef and tannat-tempranillo blend and you will know what the rave is all about

Ate at Garcia's one night, liked it so much came back the next night. Baby Garcia beef both nights, varied the side dishes and the wine. You can't go wrong here with the beef; i would not even venture past that part of the menu!!

Very tender steaks. Good ambiance and service. Now, it lacked seasoning. Steaks weren't flavorful. They can improve on that.

Went there for an early dinner. Had the baby beef people crave about on trip advisor. Was quite good. So was the glass of tannat (it was a big glass!).

Uruguay has 4 head of cattle for every head of population, so they know their steaks, and this gem of a restaurant does a great steak. Grilled to your taste with a wide selection of side dishes. It was surprising good selection we got considering our poor Spanish skills but the staff were great and thankfully with more English than... More

There is a very good wine list and they carry both local and imported brands. The local wines are excellent. The big draw is the food,... More

Garcia is a well known place in Montevideo, in the Carrasco area. It serves classic appetizers and a great selection of meet. The best choice is always the baby beef (I had that indeed), and it never disappoints!! Great wine selection, too. You want good meat in Montevideo? Go to Garcia!

Get the baby beef as part of the big sampler plate they do. Sorry, I don't recal the name of the plate on the menu but its got a bit of every meat dish. Add the cheese covered baked potatoes. Finish with the vanilla crepes in dulce de leche sauce with some Licor de Tannat
