Best steak I have ever eaten, best pepper sauce, best baked potato, best service and the best house red (affordable) pinot noir. Loved it.

For a great traditional Parilla, this place can not be beat! Their experienced Grill Master will make any BBQ fan jealous! The service is awesome too. This is a great place that you should plan to go to!

We tried this place because a friend of ours in Canada recommended it to us when she heard we were visiting Punta del Este, and we are very glad we went! Out of all the restaurants (including an amazingly expensive steak house/Parrilla in Buenos Aires), Los Caracoles was by far the best meal that we had on our entire trip.... More

It was our 2nd time to Caracoles. It's a typical cantina. Many food options, you can easily share if not so hungry. Reasonable food for families.

Excellent location in the centre of Punta del Este. Good variety of dishes. Some of their specialities are: "milanesa con papas fritas", "parrilla" and "ravioles". Tasty and traditional desserts. Very nice to go for dinner.

Our first shore side meal since departing on a cruise from Buenos Aires, it was a very good find. Local beer and I had gigantic perfectly cooked lambchops while my wife enjoyed an excellent steak. The grilled sweet potato was a big hit.

This place was packed when we arrived but we took a number and were seated within 15 minutes. Our server was incredible...even though he was swamped with tables he took the time to help us choose a bottle of wine and did the proper taste test and service when bringing it to the table. He was friendly and attentive. The... More
