One of the better lunch places in Montevideo for a good lunch! Small place - you can only sit at the bar and it is always full!

This is great place to take a lunch or brunch. Clean, good price and good service. Is small place, if you re tourist is good option to take a rest. Many customer are employees from near offices and banks Good place.

You have to sit at the bar and eat the menu. They always have something new and fresh to try. Its small so its not a place to go with a big group couse you cant sit anywhere

I went here for lunch and everything we had was really good. The atmosphere is great and is a really cute spot. I like it so much, that I am going back for lunch after finishing writing this review.

Estrecho is a small restaurant in the Old City, where you sit on the bar and watch your food being prepared in front of you. Whatever you choose from the menu, you certainly get something tasty served by friendly people. One of the best restaurants in Montevideo.

We tried Estrecho for lunch on the day we arrived in MVD from the US, in the off season. We had a very nice meal and felt very welcomed and comfortable. We wish they were open for dinner!

I very much enjoyed this place, in fact it was the one place we repeated in Montevideo during our one-week stay. It's only open for lunch and it's a great option for a quick but not rushed lunch. Tender beef on the filet mignon, tasty sandwiches, a daily change of fish in a basic dish but with the filets always... More
