This is a lovely restaurant off the beaten path in Montevideo. The Palermo neighborhood isn't really close to anything but this is worth an Uber or a drive over. The space is modern with high ceilings- not what it looks like from the street. I had the steak (entrecot) and my husband had pasta. Mine was significantly better than his.... More

I was really surprised to find such an interesting restaurant in a neighborhood a little out of the most typical restaurants´ areas in Montevideo. Good management, friendly attention, a big fire at sight for the typical uruguayan "parrilada"...very good beef, and other dishes, as well as a variety of good wines...The place is usually crowded, so it may be too...

My wife had the pulpon (grilled beef roast - kind of a big filet) and I had two kinds of fish. The food was all very good, the service was a little "nose turned up".

I had the executive menu, with the bife de tira. Food was very well done and the dessert was exquisit. Price is fair. The only issue was the service, which takes a while, so be sure to have enough time.
