Very nice restaurant in Montevideo, with good variety in the menu, good wine list and bar, comfortable and pleasing ambience, and good service. Was happy with the provolone al oregano, chorizo, and tagliatelle de cordero (lamb). Definitely recommend!

Randomly stumbled upon this place a tuesday night. Great staff, nice and cozy interior and amazing food. They served me half of my steak at first just so it wouldn't be cold too quickly.

We were in a hotel in Cuidad Vieja where it is nearly impossible to find a restaurant that opens on Sunday. So went to La Cocina de Pedro in Pocitos instead. Very nicely decorated, good food (we both had Spinach Ravioli with Tomato Salsa), no wine, only water, and payed U$ 35 both both of us. They seem to have... More

My wife walked for quite a while on a Sunday afternoon looking for a place open for lunch. We were very fortunate to find this place open. The staff were very friendly (even though there was a language barrier) and the food was excellent.

We ordered variety meat plata for 2 with veggies... More

This is a lovely restaurant off the beaten path in Montevideo. The Palermo neighborhood isn't really close to anything but this is worth an Uber or a drive over. The space is modern with high ceilings- not what it looks like from the street. I had the steak (entrecot) and my husband had pasta. Mine was significantly better than his.... More

I was really surprised to find such an interesting restaurant in a neighborhood a little out of the most typical restaurants´ areas in Montevideo. Good management, friendly attention, a big fire at sight for the typical uruguayan "parrilada"...very good beef, and other dishes, as well as a variety of good wines...The place is usually crowded, so it may be too...

Disappointing. Atmosphere is excellent. Bread before dinner terrible. They leave it out for hours at tables waiting for customers to show. Salads excellent. Main courses of meat and fish were just poor. My picanha was chewy and overdone. Wife's fish overcooked and dry. Best part of meal, which tells you something, was the dessert: a dark chocolate covered in ice... More

Get ready to have a great culinary experience in Montevideo. Service and attention are as good as the food. When you see a place full of locals, you know it is good.
