Despite being in the center of Montevideo, from the décor of this restaurant, you get the feeling you are dining in a beach house. We sat in the back room where there are beamed ceilings and whitewashed wood paneled walls. A very laid back atmosphere and a nice light ambience for lunch. There is of course the obligatory open barbeque... More

1. Atlantico Sur, red Tannat reserva wine - a bad choice for 600 Peso. A bad, bad wine. 2. Chriso and Provoletitas - great! 3. Bife de lomo - fantastic. Order this and you will be happy forever. 4. Ojo de bife "la vaca" with whisky sauce / a bad idea / the meat had no flavor at all.

Really good food with good portions, the steaks were all good same as the appetizers (provoleta was excellent!!). Good selection of local wines. Service was a little slow once the place was full.

We have been with a group of 12 people. Starters: sausages and provolone. Main: meat, meat, meat (with some salad from the buffet) as the locals do. All was very good and plentiful. Wine selection also very appropriate. Restaurant has a nice casual atmosphere.

Together with El Palenque, García and Casa Violeta, one of the best places to eat meat in Montevideo. Nice salad bar. Good place also for business meals

This is a parilla (barbecue) restaurant. You may order dishes which come only with the meat and get sides, choose a buffet or they have complete meals where the meat comes with some special side, sauce etc. We had the bife de chorizo which is a 400g steak and it was of very good quality. The other couple enjoyed their... More

Ok location, nothing especial. The service is in edge between good and rude. Just because I'm Brazilian they kept offering Brazilan popular Picanha, when I actually wanted the opposite I e local steaks preferences.

This place was packed with business workers during the lunch time. The atmosphere is casual but smart and the service was fantastic. We recommend anything off the grill menu, though they do have some pasta options and a salad bar. The prix fixe menu for lunch looked really nice and is a good value at $480 and includes soup/salad, wine... More

Went for dinner on a Wednesday and found a great atmosphere. Food is very good with the Uruguayan meat specialties and a salad buffet.
