Unfortunately the service is not up to standard - they would like to be a restaurant type haute cuisine française but the service does not nearly compare. After all just over-priced and therefore disappointing! Don't get too high expectation about the service - although the food is super delicious. Another no-go is their wine menu - super-overpriced wines - that's... More

Although the food was very good, the food menu prices were stated in Uruguayan Pesos, and the wine list prices were stated in US Dollars. The person ordering the wine at our table failed to recognize this fact. At every restaurant we attended in Uruguay during our stay, the wine list was stated in Uruguayan Pesos. I believe this to...

A total SCAM, the prices on the food menu are indicated in local currency yet the wines quietly and deceptively are priced in US currency, with the dollar pricing disguised as peso pricing. Who would imagine a $1000 charge for wine alone? Three bottles of wine that we looked up later online and the most expensive was 60 US. The... More

La Bourgogne is a very nice place, hidden behind a beautiful garden in a corner. Since the moment you get there you can feel you are a special guest. Nicely arranged tables can accommodate small to large groups. From couvert to coffee with specially good petit fours everything was perfect. It worths high prices. I would return in a next... More

Wow! This is THE place for a romantic and sophisticated dinner in Punta. Food was absolutely exquisite (and portions were generous for a French restaurant). We had the best cheese platter outside of France. Service was amazing and the staff speaks at least four languages (Spanish, English, Portuguese and French). Beware that it is an expensive restaurant, so make sure... More

We had a booking at another PDE restaurant, and had driven an hour to learn the restaurant had closed and not bothered to cancel the reservations. However, a friendly employee did find that La Bourgogne was open. It was a special occasion. The place was empty. We were the first diners that evening and would be well into our meal... More

That is a good place. You can eat good food but nothing so marvelous to face the price that they charge you.
