“Nice but too expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

The hotel/restaurant is located in a very beautiful and sophisticated area of Punta, surrounded by amazing houses and villas. If you get there, you should ask for the waffle, expectable.One is enough for a couple, and it comes with one sauce. We asked for a waffle with chocolate sauce and ordered an extra strawberry sauce. I had a mineral water and my girlfriend had a cup of tea. We payed around U$ 50!!!! A place to attend just once!!!!

“great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013

an absolute classic in Punta del Este.

If it's rainning it's packed. The custom is to have waffles with dulce de leche or chocolate.

There are excellent teas also.

Go in tea time.

You must go there if you are in Punta del Este.

“Decadent and unexpected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2013

I wasn't sold on the idea of this place from the reviews, however being ranked #1 in Punta is no joke so we rolled the dice and it paid off. This is not a place I would go every week, but the late afternoon tea and waffles were fantastic and a real hit with all nine of us. They accommodated us right when they opened at 1700 although we were severely underdressed in beach attire and had two children with us. They also agreed to serve us wine and beer with our waffles and tea since we wanted the party to continue without interruption!

About half of us opted for the sweet choices (chocolate and dulce de leche) and the other half took the "saltado" option - cheese. I personally prefer salty to sweet, but I tasted all of them and none of it was disappointing. Being Punta, it was pricey, but so is the entire town. The café con leche, darjeeling, all of it, were fantastic. Not something you would want to do weekly if you have any fitness routine at all, but certainly worth a visit while in Punta.

Have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here so far, no negative experiences. Wonderful eggs. Good service, good atmosphere. Clearly a high end operation. Charming hotel, too

“Yes, yes, yes, THE BEST WAFFLES EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

I agree with everybody, this place serves the best waffles I have ever tasted. Dulce de leche is my topping.
The iron waffle maker is from the 40's which adds to the whole ceremony of having tea at L'Auberge.
A classic never goes out of style.
