Nice place to have coffee and desserts or a healthy lunch. Enjoyed my chocolate volcán cake. Good portions of salad and friendly service. Only downside is I never know when they will be open.

Every time I come to Punta from Amsterdam I go directly to Late. I went on Sunday, but the service wasn't good as it used to be. I talked to the owner and he explained me that some of the personal failed to show up the long weekend, mainly because of carnaval. Today i went back, the food was perfect,... More

This was the best seafood I have had so far in Punta del Este. The fish and chips can't be beat anywhere. We were told the fish arrives twice daily. The plate came with two nice-sized pieces of delicate white fish with a light beer-batter style rather than breading, so five stars are in order. I'm anxious to try the... More

We came here for the lunch menu and it was a decent portion but the best part of my meal was the chocolate volcan. This is my fav dessert so I'm picky. It should be heated just enough for a runny middle and served hot with vanilla ice cream. Its really the only way to eat it and I have... More

We went to this little place by recommendation. What we were not told is that it takes forever to get served. The nice thing about this place is that if feels like you are alone at your home´s garden. When we eventually got served, we enjoyed the food, but by then we were already very pissed off with the slowness... More

Late chocolate is a cozy restaurant with amazing food and such a friendly staff. The prices are quite good specially considering that in many of Punta del Leste's restaurants you pay a lot of money for a poor food. We had ojo de bife and a shrimp salad and both were delicious, the portions - even the salad which is... More

Such a cute place in what feels like someone's back garden. Has excellent food, drinks and service. Our waitress spoke English and was very helpful and attentive. We will for sure be back during our stay!

I stayed a week in Punta del Este and this place is by far my favorite. It has a beatiful garden where you can enjoy your lunch and the sun. The food was delicious and the service was great. It also has a lot of home-made chocolates which I strongly recommend.

Thank Jaasie

Late is a very special place to know, in the heart of Punta del Este. The best choice of fusion cuisine, drinks, wines, and cuisine trend asiatic & peruvian. Best sushi and ceviches in town. A modern and unique atmosphere, located in parade 7, of Mansa beach, in between trees, and 4 blocks up the sea. A place where you can enjoy both things, food and place with friends, family or even alone next to the sushi bar.

For those who don't know LATE, besides of having the best sushi open all year, the most interesting thing, is the story of how it started. It used to be owner's grandpa home, that's why it actually seems cozzy, it feels as eating at home. Then it started selling belgian artesanal chocolate, the very well known, Callebaut chocolate. And after 5 years of growing, it converted in what today it is, a resto with a different and tasty proposal. In winter capacity, is smaller, and we suggest to make reserves.

We recommend to make a visit, and let the experience begin. You can Follow us on our social networks with Instagram: and Facebook too, as latepuntadeleste. Reservations at contact number.
