Visited L'Amitie in the Mercado del Puerto in Montevideo, Uruguay. Lunchtime, great atmosphere, large selection of restaurants. Had steak & chorizo with salad washed down with local draft beer. Chorizo great, steak chewy with a little too much gristle.

A freshly cooked meal for the two of us. Plenty of fresh sea food included. Sat at the bar and were served with generous portions of the half and half plus a good local beet. The service was execellent and the meal size generous.
