Whatever language you speak - Alberto and Marion will have no problem communicating with you. We were at Ed. Isla Goritti (the building that holds "Lady Marion") on business when the sign in front drew us in - coffee, scones and English spoken! The proprietors are engaging, charming and fantastic cooks. The onion soup was delicious; smooth, cheezy and spiced gently and perfectly. Eggs were fluffy and cooked EXACTLY to order accompanied by a soft warm croissant. My partner had Irish coffee (a specialty) and i had the best cappuccino i've had in Uruguay. An amazing variety of designer olive oils made locally (and FANTASTIC) - "Finca Babieca" was on display and available. i ended up soaking the final drops up with my croissant and sprinkling it on my eggs - Rosemary flavored olive oil. Yum.
Marion and Alberto also keep a library of English language books for loan / gift - we each left with a mystery in hand. We felt, not only satisfied & sated when we left, but like we'd made new friends and just had a home cooked, wonderful, meal. All for under $30. A remarkable find in Punta del Este - where one can easily drop more than $150 for a mediocre meal.
The location, directly opposite Playa Mansa is also lovely. After we ate we walked on the beach, watching birds. Ahhhhhhhhh....
We will be back as often as possible!! We are eager to try the fruit tarts, scones and quiches!
