Traditional Uruguayan cuisine cooked exquisitely in a vintage furniture store where the 20s oak table you’re sitting at is up for sale. A family concern, led by chef Guillermina, they’ve run gastronomy businesses in Patagonian ski resorts, glitzy Punta del Este, estancias and it shows. Original and with an attention to detail that is unusual in relaxed Montevideo.
The food is rustic-chic. Here you’ll get what the locals might prepare at home, so think roasts, pizza, pastas and rice, quiches (called tartas) and stews (guisos) but taken to a whole other culinary level. Their pizzas are a classic.
Items specifically for vegans, diabetics or celiacs are NOT on the menu. Make your dietary need known and Guillermina will rustle up something just for you.
