This is a place on a touristy street, so it gets busy. The food is good and the staff is trying hard, but it's crowded and loud. So it feels more like a sports bar than a fine restaurant. The prices are typical mid-range. Well, that was exactly what we were looking for, so we left happy.

The food was good! We had Chevito and Mussolini. Only thing we mist was some vegetables. But you almost don't get that anywhere. We asked for a large beer, bit they sad they didn't have it anymore. Then we saw they brought a large beer to an other table so we asked again. But we got the same answer. We... More

Very good meal at La Corte. First time at this restaurant. Great service and attention to detail. I had lunch around 2pm and the place was still packed with lunch crowd. Lunch crowd largely made up of professionals perhaps on a lunch break. The space is used well. I really like the exposed brick apparent throughout the restaurant. I selected... More

The good thing is the menu (meal+drink: vine or water+cafe+dessert for a fixed price) with options. But the service is PATHETIC! It has a staff of young waitress/waiters, but even Uruguayan people complained about the missing services and the long waiting time at the table. There is an outside area but understaffed. Huge disappointment: it is open until 3 pm... More

La Corte, which opens onto one of Montevideo's more pleasant plazas, offers a great menu ejecutivo: a choice of entree (with salad), drink and dessert, for a reasonable price (which is lowered if you arrive before 12:20). The service is crisp, and the food quite good; although it does a large volume, moreover, this is a classy and confident restaurant.... More

We went to La Corte on a business lunch. The place is very nice and cozy, with an interesting look. On weekdays it's always packed with business people from the companys around. The menu has several Options, so you can pick your choice from a broad variety of dishes. They are all exquisite and dishes are quite big. For dessert... More

Nice place, good food and reasonable priced. There is an early birds menu for walks in before 12:15 pm . Service is good as well and place is cozy. By 1 pm it gets really crowded.

We went here twice based on the reviews and both times it was not open. We read the fine print on the sign on the door to find out that at the end of summer holidays they are only open from 12 noon to 3.30 pm. Yet trip advisor says they are open at night.

This is a huge restaurant right on a main plaza that was full of locals. They have 15% off for earlybirds (get inside before 12.20 I think) which if you combine this discount with a set lunch menu you can enjoy an excellent meal for a very reasonable price :-) Good food, good price and good ambience.

We came across this place while shopping and I'm glad we came it. This place is huge! And packed! I had a special with a drink some pasta and a dessert for lunch for about $360 pesos. The food is pretty good and the service is pretty quick which is nice and sometimes hard to find in some places.
