The restaurant is very well furnished and the cave is an extra that you cannot miss.

Judging by everyone else on here we had a bad night....sort of. The appetizers were to die for. Totally mouth watering. So it looked like a fantastic night. But then the actual meal was wretched. Awful tasting risotto and pasta (how does anyone screw up pasta?). Understand that we NEVER slam a restaurant. We're not picky at all. Our level of "It's ok"...is pretty low by most standards. This place just seemed to push all the wrong buttons. It was decorated beautifully and with LOTS of waiters/waitresses. But virtually no customers. So they're just standing their sort of at attention staring at us. You could hear a pin drop in the place. We felt like we were in a very very very uptight museum. Lots of attitude from the staff and the bill was considerably higher than any other restaurant we visited in Montevideo and even Punta. And we've pretty much hit the whole top 20 on the tripadvisor restaurant list. So this disappointed on so many levels. Personally I would never go back.

Nice ambiance from the street view, cozy atmosphere inside, straight forward two page menu, professional service and good presentation. The food was tasty. Moderately priced. A clientele mix of businessmen, tourists and locals. A relatively safe neighborhood at night. If you wonder around the residential streets of Punte Carretas you can find a number of other equally good restaurants.

In a month of traveling in Argentina and Uruguay, this was our favorite restaurant. Everything was delicious and the people were nice - and spoke English, which was helpful in negotiating what was vegetarian (and there were plenty of veg and non-veg choices).

Great little restaurant offering a varied menu with flavorful dishes prepared and presented with elegance. Every time I am in Montevideo, I make it a point to go. A special place for game dishes. The venison, the lamb can't be beat. And the personalized service is superb.
