“excellent location”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

if you stay in cafe bacacay you can enjoy the theatro solis view...stop. tannat wine from pisano was delicious, food we tried could be ok for english basic pub, not more...and you pay a lot for service (bread in plastic bag). the famous, for lonely planet, wasabi salmon is good salmon but you can't taste it because of the strong sauce, milanesa was like an italian milanesa. the most expensive and low quality in our holiday.

“Great evening!”
Reviewed 21 November 2012

After walking for more than 6km over the Ramblas of Montevideo we stopped for some appetizer and a chilly chardonnay Don Pascual! No better way to finish up the day with a beatiful view of Teatro Solis!

“What a romantic little cafe!”
Reviewed 29 October 2012

We had such a lovely light dinner of a couple appetizers and beers here. The servers were kind, thoughtful, and non-intrusive, and the place has a truly wonderful ambiance right across from the teatro solis. It's very romantic and sweet without being pretentious or overbearing. The food we had--a ham, cheese, & olive platter and a plate of fried eggplant witha sweet and sour nut paste-- went perfectly with our Patricia beers. Great spot in Montevideo for a romantic rainy date night!

“One of my favourites in Montevideo”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

A great place to eat after a performance at the Solis, next door. A hangout of artists, intellectuals, gays, and an "in" crowd. Interesting architecture, great staff and always good food. Try the onion soup, the cooked Camembert, and almost anything else.

“great location and staff”
Reviewed 2 September 2012

We really enjoyed our evening at Bacacay. The restaurant is centrally located and is near a busy and enjoyable pedestrian street and across the street from a beautiful theater. We enjoyed the food and the staff. Juan, our waiter, was great.
