This was my first experience with Basque cuisine and it was completely excellent!
The food was a unique creation of the chef: it had a lot of exquisite taste, the representation was top class and the service was friendly.
In fact, I did not hope to find such a good restaurant in Punta del Este since everything is quite expensive over there and mostly tourist-oriented. In Punta it is largely about the place, rather than the quality of food. Hence, this restaurant definitely exceeded my expectations. Home wine was tasty and served in large glasses which was a great combination with the food!
The waitress and the owner were very friendly and highly interested in the guests' opinion on the cuisine. The care for guests was an important plus.
The only minus was that on the bill we had to pay for different wine instead of the one that we ordered. Nevertheless, when we addressed the staff with this question, they immediately solved the issue.
Very recommendable if you visit Punta del Este!

It was just good, you can have an average dinner/lunch but nothing extraordinary. If you are in the neighbourhood give it a try.

The owner has been in the business for ages now. He does not try fancy dishes but all of them are delicious. from mussels to rabas, calamari, the catch of the day. Let the waiter assist you and you will be happy all night.Wines are not that good but still Ok to drink with the menu.
