I had a basic Lomo with fries and a glass of Malbec. The steak was tender, succulent and full of flavour. Little wonder the street dogs don't come by as there is no change of any leftovers. As an experiment, I went back the next...More

We had an excellent meal at this restaurant. If you see the name cafe, you might think coffee, tea, cake and a few sandwiches. If this the case, then you are in for a lovely surprise, as this cafe offers a creative and diverse dinner...More

Being a great fan of desserts, we stopped at this cafe and ordered cheesecake and flan. Both were excellent, flavorful and fresh. The wait staff were great. The cafe is accross the street from the Solis Theater and has nice outdoor seating.

No visit to Montevideo is truly complete without a drink and a meal at "el Bacacay". This is a hip restobar with design, signature decor by New York based architect Lucas Ríos (we were told the whole story!) in an austere 1870's corner building overlooking...More

We went to this restaurant twice in one week (there are not many restaurants in the Old City open for dinner). It was excellent both times. I had the salmon with wasabi sauce, and my husband has the lomo naturale. Both were cooked and seasoned...More

We had a couple of visits to this nice and centrally located restaurant. Had different steaks on the two occasions. Tenderloin with tannat sauce was very good. Staff is very professional and friendly.
