Steaks are okay, rest not with to taste it. There are better Restaurants in Montevideo. We will not go again.

Enjoyed a fabulous steak dinner with family while visiting Montevideo. One of the best steaks I've had. Flavorful, tender and juicy. The side dishes were equally pleasing. Enjoy

Food is excellent. Great Parrilla. Worth mentioning that even though I live in London and in Europe since 2009, I am originally from Montevideo and know this place very well. Can definitely compare and as mentioned, the food is great. Baby beef and picanha are really best in class. Not cheap at all, but all good, because prices are in... More

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!).
