This is the place to go and have a typical asado which means great quantities of meat. I managed to have some fish though. On top of the food the experience with the outside tables and the quaint stores is very typical

I was there during my last hours in my last day during a holiday, with my girlfriend, and it was totally worth the quick ride. The building probably dates from last century, but it is very well conservated, and offers a great choice of restaurants...More

No one single fruit or fish post here. 99% of the place if covered with parrillas (BBQs) serving mostly meat, chorizos, game, and limited seafood. Many locals, and also tourists. We enjoyed.

Best on weekends but also good during the week. Casual no hurry ambiance with lots to see. Can easily buy tickets for the city tour bus from here. Good place to meet others or sit at a restaurant or cafe and watch life go by....More

We visited as tourists and really enjoyed the rustic ambiance of the eateries, bars and shops. There are many parrilla choices that seem to be similarly priced with similar menus. We went on a weekday for lunch and had some terrific rib eye. Very flavorful...More

We probably misunderstood what the Mercado is about and expected to see a normal market with fresh food, vegetables etc and some small resraurants and cafes. It's only about restaurants, bars and a few tourisric shops! Not particularly exciting as city landmark...

This is my favorite place to go in Montevideo. There are restaurants, bars and gift shops. The main building is old and original, amazing. You may eat mainly a variety of grilled meats and drinks the famous Uruguayan medio y medio, delicious sparkling wine! You...More
