I was staying 10 minutes away and was recommended by the hotel. Beautiful restaurant, lovely entrance, high ceilings, very grand. Excellent choice of meat. The T-bone steak was superb along with a glass of Malbec. Very well priced.

Nice place and good food (steak only), but somewhat expensive. Cost x benefit ok, but one may find it cheap, other may find expensive.

Very good meat. Very well prepared. I love the starters, especially the Morcilla and Mollejas (please, try them! You won't regret). As a main course go to the Vacio or Ancho steak. Don't you ever order well done, always at least "al punto" - pink center - Great salads and rices. Another good thing is their outdoor kids space. You... More

Stayed there one night for dinner with colleagues. The food was awesome! I can recommend the Bife Chorizo which was a really good steak. They grill the steaks over open fire which also looks fantastic. Full recommendation. If I have the chance to come back - I will do so!

Excellent meats; world class !!. Great Service. Very nice atmosphere. Ideal for quiet, important business dinners or simply to reward office colleagues. Not cheap at all, but well worth it.

Fancier Dining a short taxi drive from our hotel. The meat was all imported from Uruguay and slow cooked and spiced and was the tastiest beef I've ever eaten. Multiple selections of meats, salads and desserts from which to whet your palate. There is not a bad choice in the house!

If you want to eat good meat, this is a good choice. Ask for uruguaio beef. Farofa is the best side dish; all others are medium to weak, poor in fact. The waiting room is the most beautiful space; the main room need new chairs; I have tried 3...all with arm rest broken. Dessert is really poor.

LaTregua, Gerente de relações públicas at El Uruguayo, responded to this review

Mr. Marcelo, good afternoon, thank you for your time to evaluate us and concepts. Considered the problem of the chairs so we apologize and we have taken action. Sorry you did not like our desserts. The question is whether all of them have been tried as recently we were awarded by an important gastronomic magazine highlighting our meat and desserts.... More

I have been coming to this area for business travel for three years and this is the first time I visited El Uruguayo. All the staff that we dealt with were very nice and welcoming. No issues at all with the service. The food was really great, they give you a basket of various breads and an assortment of condiments... More

Service is good as well the food. The steaks in general are big for women and children. In general we ask 2 for three and an appetizer and a entreé for a couple.

This restaurant can stand out in a crowd of full of Brazilian "all-you-can-eat" and "Rodizio" style options, and will likely come out a top scoring winner. The menu is composed of typical Uruguayan and Argentine specialties, served appetizer style, as main course, or in portions large enough to share. Cuts that can only be found in certain places such as... More
