Beautiful setting near José Ignacio. Enjoyable outdoors on a summer night. Relaxed, simple yet sophisticated. Food maintains high quality. Lamb preparation is great. Service is average to good. There is room for improvement in that department. Recommended.

Wonderful dinner and atmosphere at Mariano. Good service with English spoken (a rarity in Jose Ignacio) and a good choice of meals and wine. The prices are high bit the quality:price ratio was just about right and the environment and decide are charming.

I went with two friends last night to Marismo, which is owned by chefs who also own and run a successful restaurant Maldonado called La Cantina del Vigía. The restaurant is located in a very private and secluded location, typical in José Ignacio and where you walk on sand. The place is very rustic as is customary here and lit... More

We got a table far away on the first floor and already then we where afraid of not getting service. We got some but still with these pricesthere should be better and more service. Food was ok but nothing more, the waiters conctantly forgot something and seemed very busy. Will not return

The place is a little hard to find, try google Maps if you get lost. It's absolutely beautiful when you arrive! It felt like we were eating dinner in a tree house. They had a band with live music playing, and exciting bar scene and multiple special dishes that weren't on the menu. Dinner was incredible and the atmosphere is... More
