Beautiful parrillita in a nice neighbourhood. We had almost everything on the menu and it was great. Worth the wait if you have a couple of tables ahead of you!

We visited La Parrillita on a day that was pouring with rain, we sat outside on the covered terrace and had a great lunch of lomo with papas frites, wok vegetables and dessert of cheesecake and chocolate mousse. All of the dishes were great, in particular we enjoyed the vegetables as we have found that vegetables can be a bit... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by the Concierge/Front Desk at HOTEL OLIVA, a wonderful boutique hotel located around the corner from the restaurant (very close to Punta Carretas shopping mall). We flew in from Miami and had dinner there on our first night – nice cozy steak house with seating available inside and outside (covered area). Menus were available... More

Location is very good, close to Punta Carretas Shopping Mall, nevertheless quiet and easy to park. The place is cozy though it is so packed with tables and chairs that it is quite a challenge to even get to seat at one of them. A few less tables would do much better. The food is nice, typical Uruguayan barbecue meat,... More

Second or third visit here, insist on how you want your meat done and it will be perfect, but make sure you are not given the generic "jugosa" or juicy, that is if you like your meat on the rare side. Ask for a "vuelta y vuelta" and send back if it is not done enough

The location is very nice but I was unimpressed by the food. Cleanliness is an issue here too. A big minus is that credit cards are not accepted. Won't be back

We wandered here while strolling the area around the apartment. We followed the wonderful smell of wood smoke and good beef. The first time, we were highly impressed and have gone back again. We were greeted like good friends by everyone! This is a great locals favorite and it shows! If you aren't seated by 9:00pm, you will wait for... More

This fabulous parrilla is in a neighborhood away from the old downtown and its refreshing! We l prefer to travel this way. You will be eating and dining in a familiar place in which local people of the town and area will be eating what they know as great food. Its affordable and busy so on weekends get there a... More
