To say we were impressed would be an understatement. The staff, the service, the food quality, and the atmosphere are all 5 Star. I travel in many countries, and Punta Del Este, Uruguay has many good restaurants. Out of them all, Mariskonea is the very best, and a must if you are traveling there. They exceeded our expectations every time... More

I brought my parents to this iconic restaurant of punta del este and left with mixed feelings: (1) for a celiac like myself, there are good things. The server was knowledgeable and offer to prepare the appetizer of fried seafood with a corn starch batter and on a fresh new oil. Kudos for that. (2) it was just us there... More

It has reopened in another location, by the granddaughter of the founder. The food is all right but not excellent. The service, as in nearly all places of Punta del Este, is very good because the waiters are usually so well mannered. Starter I had camarones al ajillo which were not good , main course, the portion of the merluza... More

I used to eat at the old location Markisonea had in Punta del este and since they opened the new location I´ve been a regular on every summer vacation. The owners are always there to greet you upon arrival, they supervise everything is well served and in timely manner. The food is delicious and still conserving the taste it used... More

As always Mariskonea is one of the best places in Punta del Este. Lunch or dinner is always excellent. This time, once more, the " Corvina a la Vasca" and the Chipirones were the most. One more benefit is added for this coming season, a special discount with the Banco de Galicia's card. Do not miss it !

My husband has been coming to Punta del Este for 40 years and I've been coming for 15. In all the years we had both been coming here, 2016 was the first year we saw Mariskonea. So it was a great discovery for us even though it's been around for many years. I'm so happy we found it and ate... More
