We just had cafe and Tostado Napolitano, with a Submarino, just a mid morning snack, well worth the visit, great location, great view of the Harbour. A very nice place for a snack and cafe

I have been to Kitty's many times over the years, and honestly I never thought of writing a review about it. Truth is, I only had drinks and snacks on Summer evenings when hanging out after sailing or visiting a friend's boat. Perfect to sit outside and have a cold beer and a "tostado" sandwich. And that is pretty much... More

Everything is slow. You sit down, and the waiter takes ten minutes to arrive. Then ten more minutes for the drinks, Then, ten more minutes for the bread basket. Then almost half an hour for the main dish. You grow so tired that you ask for the check, and leave to have desert and coffee somewhere else.

Kitty's Resto is located at the harbourfront of Punta del Este and the food is great, as is the ambiance and the view. Our visit in a late winter afternoon proved to be a surprise. We where expecting the average tourist "trap"; instead Sérgio, the waiter was very kind, explained us every option on the menu and recommended the fish... More

We popped in here to get out of the storm. The waiter recommended the langostinos and I like their size but they were not fresh. They had that pasty quality I really don't like when a shrimp is not on the fresh side. The calamari was ok, but this is just average bar food. The location is very good.

Tour bus dropped us off in the port to find lunch. By luck, we found this place. It is an extremely nice cafe on the water by the boats, a beautiful spot, and the outside area has sufficient shade umbrellas. The generously-sized chivitos were great, the servers were very nice and efficient. I ordered my chivito without pork and they... More

could not recommend. We enjoyed our fish dish, but it was snack size, grossly overpriced as was the wine. We were definitely not sated. It was a bit like going to a posh restaurant for dinner then having to stop at Maccas on the way home. We felt the idea was to fill us up on bread rolls first..................doesn't work... More

Horrible food. Dry old horrible mussels. Supermarket spaghetti with bad tomato sauce for the kid. The calamari saved the day but just as an option less choice for the survivors. It's a pity, as the staff was nice and the place is privileged.

Slow service. No smiles. After drinking a glass of beer, we noted that it was past its sell-by date. With the new bottle, we were served in fresh glasses, yet one glass had lipstick on it. The fish of the day said it came with boiled potatoes. We asked if possible to have fries instead, but were told it was... More

The viewsight to the marina atracts customers, but the experience is far from matching the expectations. I ordered the Uruguayan tipical Chivitos, described as prepared with sirloin steak, instead it came with something else really hard that made it very difficult to bite the sandwich. The other dishes (fish of the day), had no taste. Service was reasonable, the kind... More
