“Terrible old bread, rotten dessert!!”

Reviewed 28 April 2012

We went there last night to have dinner. We first wondered why there were just 2 tables. Later on we realized what was going on. The resturant has gone deeply down, serving not only old hard as rock bread, but also old desserts that almost smelled rotten! My tarte tatin was at least 1 week old, impossible to eat, I left it completely on the plate. The waiters try to be attentive, but we asked one if the food had gluten on it (my husband is celiac) and the answer never came back, we had to just try the food and discover it by ourselves!! Terrible food, terrible service, it used to have the best bread and food in Punta Carretas, now its going down the slope heading to going out of business. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, DONT GO!!!

a friend of ours recommended the spot, it is very small, an old house that was renovated, as are most of the restaurants in montevideo, very clean, good service, excellent food, both quality and quantity, small menu, very short wine list, but good quality. good for an intimate,quiet dinner,
also have special prices/menu for lunch during weekdays. very nice desserts. a few blocks away from sheraton montevideo. residential neighborhood. on the whole, pretty good.

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.
