This is an interesting place. Friendly greeting, not too big, everything is cooked on an open fire right in the entry, the bread came with delightful little dishes of yummy stuff. We ordered fish, which was perhaps a mistake in a place known for grill, it was well plated but overcooked. The salad and desert were fine, but let me tell you the Albarino they served was the best wine I had in Uruguay. It is from a small, local Uruguayan winery. For no other reason, go have a glass of that fragrant and delicious white wine. They were very friendly, and service was casual but attentive.

Excellent grill super meats, lovely staff, friendly service by a young American girl.

It's in the road from bus stop 2 and down about 2 blocks north of the main bus station .

Large grill menu all freshly cooked and the best thing to have us the mixed meat grill, different meats and sausages etc, huge portion , 1 is enough for 2. One couple ordered for 2 and were still trying to finish 1 hour later.

Very cheap compared to other restaurants here,say $50 for 2 instead of $160 for 2 in the classy places . Great value packed by 1030, reserve ahead a priority after 10. Queues when we left, mainly locals as well. NO credit cards taken.

The staff at the restaurant are very nice. You can see them grilling the food on the left hand side of the restaurant. We had the mixed grill for three. While the flavor was delicious, some of the cuts of meat were a little on the chewy side. For the most part however, we enjoyed our meal. You can go casual after being at the beach this was nice.

Still with the aftertaste of the wonderful apple pancake in my mouth, I'd like to transmit the excellent experience of eating at La Milonguera. The owner is present and not only gave us the best advice about the dishes they offer but even brought a couple of ravioli in a small plate -decorated and all! - to our granddaughter to help her decide. Very good value for money. The quality of the food is excellent as well as the cooking methods (barbecued meat and vegetables with coronilla wood). We have definitely become clients.

We had dinner here with my family in a very warm summer night and we wished we had booked a table outside because the heat (the fire from the BBQ didn't help) was unbearable. No airco, not even a fan. Service was quite poor, being a family-run business, they could make with some better organisation or a pair of extra hands. But when the meat arrived, it was good, and I mean, really good! The rustic mashed potatoes were also very good but the green salad was just disappointing (and overpriced). All in all I would come back for the meat, they can improve a lot by changing just few things, I hope they will
