  • Don Peperone (Ciudad Vieja)

    Montevideo Restaurants

    Located just across the street from our hotel we ate here twice and loved it both times. We tried the homemade pastas and pizza..all delicious. Itsa cozy place with nonstop music videos. It is here I discovered medio y medio,amixture of champagne and wine.I really got to like it and at $5.00 for 384 ml....no wonder.

  • Panini's

    Montevideo Restaurants

    Panini's provides an excellence of service and ambiance that one doesn't expect in laid back Uruguay. Often the food is sublime, but there are potholes along the way. Their breads are delicious and varied. Two pastas were wonderful a Sorrentino Caprese featured tender raviolis filled with a mouth-watering melted, gooey cheese filling and elegantly...

  • El Fogon

    Montevideo Restaurants

    El Fogon is located in the old part of town and I don't mean Ciudad Vieja. I have been to this restaurant twice (last Feb 2010) and has been crowded so they obviously draw a local crowd. The specialties are the typical Uruguayan....parrilla & beef. I had the beef tongue in vinegrette to start which was good. For the main I had a filet mignon which...

  • El Callejón

    Montevideo Restaurants

    Ok, anyone who has to have a fancy, pricey, restaurant, don't waste your time reading this. Pizza Roni is your classic, dark, hole in the wall, stone oven pizza place. There are probably three tables. The food is wonderful, however, and best of all......Ricardo is there. With only a little encouragement, Ricardo, (a waiter and delivery man), will...

  • #1 in Piriapolis

    The menu was posted outside the doors to the diningroom. Much to our surprise the food was less expensive there than any other restaurant of its calibur.There are several dining rooms in the Argentinio Hotel. We ate in the informal dining room that had one wall lined with windows, we had a view of the sea and Piriapolis. The waitress was quite...

  • Seaside dining

    The restaurant located inside the Casa Pueblo is called Las Terrazas, there you can enjoy drinks while admiring the beautiful sunset or dine by the moonlight. I would have to say that eating here is more for the experience than the food. Not that the food was bad, it is just that the view is more memorable. We especially enjoyed seeing the night...

  • Fresh fish

    If all the restaurants in Jose Ignacio are as good as Lucy's it is no wonder that people come from miles away. Lucy's is a cute little restaurant/tearoom. I would have to say that the food here was probably the best we had in Uruguay.We had the option of inside seating or out on the patio. We chose inside.The service was prompt and waitress quite...

  • Montevideo

    You just HAVE to go to the Port Market in Montevideo and go inside to check out the "cabañas", all serving fresh seafood prepared in every great way, with good white wine from Uruguay.The chef was young and handsome, he could not speak I think, but he was great with food and had a fantastic smile. The cabañas are all lined up side-by-side, indoors,...

  • Colonia del Sacramento

    Cute and colourful from the outside, a bit "imposing" on the inside. The menu is intriguing but when I tried to enquire about it, the staff was stand-offish and cold. Still, the food was very good and the decor impressive. I don't think I'd go back after the cold shoulder I got there for showing an interest in foodstuff names unknown to me. The...

  • Wine drinking country

    The wines of Uruguay (and Argentina) that I tasted were quite good. The prices in restaurants were very low, and of course, even lower in stores. I think a wine tasting tour would be very rewarding. The Tannat is reportedly from a grape that no longer exists in France. This is a strong (robust?) wine that goes well with a beef steak dinner.

  • Good breakfast place

    I discovered this cafe on my first morning in Colonia, when I was looking for breakfast, and ended up returning every morning.Interestingly, it was very quiet and shady in the morning. People only started showing up around noon, and by 3:00pm it was crowded and people were baking in the sun!I liked it in the morning for its quietness and good...

  • Parrilla in Montevideo

    The inside of the Mercado building is filled with parrilla "restaurants". They consist of a giant BBQ grill where all possible cuts of beef as well as sausages, chicken, and other "stuff" (read "organ meat") are cooked. Customers sit on stools at a long counter and order from the overhead menu. These are meat and potato places. Vegetarians, stay...

    If you go to Colonia del Sacramento and walk to the old heritage part of the town, it is worth strolling a little bit beyond the main square near the lighthouse and near the old cars to Calle de San Jose to find this place.IT is beautiful with wooden beams, and enormous fireplace where they cook your meal - the restaurant is part inside and part...

  • Go to a winery!

    Before dinner we had a chance to visit the cava, while having a glass of wine. After the dinner (and actually, sort of during), we were treated to a tango and dance and singing show. It was all wonderful! The food was BBQ (parrillada), similar to Argentina. There was a bit of a salad bar and then many different meats were brought around to the...

  • Mercado del Puerto

    One cannot miss visiting the Mercado del Puerto, where you will find the best asado, or barbecue, in the city. There are many restaurants to choose from. You definitely have to have a bottle of Medio y Medio to accompany your meal. I recommend going to Palenque. Parrilla, which is essentially barbecued meat (as well as organs, so if your not too...
