The worst steak I have ever eaten. Like a chewing gum! The money doesn't worth the food. They even charge the cover and cutlery! So many more better places in Montevideo for less money! I don't recommend this place at all.

I you want to enjoy the best barbecue this is the place you have to go. There are several restaurants with different options but beef and chicken meat are the best.

The best place in town to taste some amazing “parrilla/asado”. It’s steps away from the the old city and the harbour. You can go have lunch and then go for a stroll at the old city.
