Two choices, get a table or sit at the bar right in front of the huge grill and watch artists with meat. Not even a hard choice. We sat, we drank, we ate and we watched. Experts cutting and grilling everything. Try the sausage sandwiches and the grilled provoletta cheese. If still hungry ask for suggestions from chicken and fish... More

We got Parilla for 2 which was a chorizo, blood sausage, lamb, chicken, asado, rib eye, rump steak. It was a mountain of food, which me and my friend maybe were able to eat a 1/3 of it. Only few pieces we enjoyed others were left on the platter. We did like the octopus and oooh the parsley, olive oil... More

After several trips to Montevideo I can say that it is my favourite restaurant in Mercado del Puerto. The parrilla (barbecue) is pretty good. Several good options of wines are available. The service is efficient.

Definitely the place to eat at the mercado, steaks are really good and the service is outstanding. Start your meal with a "medio y medio"

What a pleasant surprise to see paella on the menu of this parilla. Take a look at the picture below. The mouthwatering paella was every bit as good as the one we had in Spain. 😋

We visited the Mercado Del Puerto on May28th around 3:30 p.m in a group of 5 couples. All restaurants were empty and it was the Champions League final (Atletico x Real Madrid). This place seemed nice and a TV was turned on displaying the game, so we walked in to watch the game and have some appetizers and drinks. No... More

I had not liked at all the kind of meat was at my plate. Instead of fresh meat recently cooked it tasted like has been grilled day before and just heated at the moment for me. I claimed my feeling to the waiter and also to the clerk. Their answer has been been evasive. I would never come again.

Very nicely grilled cuts of different meats. Lovely roasted peppers. The only about eating down here - that counts for all the restaurants at the market. There is a thick smoke and stench all the time from the poor ventilation, but I guess thats just a part of the experience.

We had been looking forward to having lunch at this famous restaurant based on reviews here and also on TV documentaries we had seen. We found our lunch to be very expensive (around 66.00 USD), and the meat mostly tough and gristly. For me, the chicken was the best thing. We got a big pot of meat, but it was... More
