We ate after walking the old city on the early eve, sat outside and enjoyed the day's end. Had an excellent 'lomo' with salad, the drinks were very good too. Highly recommend!

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!
