Or so my waiter told me. This is an attractive and popular spot that I was drawn to at first because of the pair of professional dancers who were doing a tango on the platform outside. I enjoyed the very tender and juicy brochette of...More

This looked like a happening place on a main road corner, with various indoor and outdoor spaces where you watch the world go by. The prices are high - 400-600 for mains - and we ordered things like chivitos and chicken. Not bad, good ingredients,...More

La esquina en donde funciona FACAL ha estado relacionada con la gastronomía desde 1882, fue fábrica de chocolates y dulce de membrillo. Se encuentra ubicado en una zona privilegiada dentro del Centro de Montevideo, siendo el lugar de encuentro para negocios, compras y turistas. En nuestra esquina se encuentra la FUENTE DE LOS CANDADOS, el punto más fotografiado del Centro de Montevideo. Contamos con un menú ejecutivo que dispone de platos no incluidos en la carta y que varían en cuanto a ingredientes y nacionalidades originales. Facal es de los pocos restaurantes que ofrecen una amplia variedad de churros, waffles y helados caseros. Además de los clásicos platos, como CHIVITOS, PIZZAS, MILANESAS, entre otros. Ofrecemos un SHOW de TANGO gratuito de lunes a sábados al mediodía en el frente al local (13:30 aproximadamente). A su vez te puedes sacar una foto con CARLOS GARDEL que se ubica en el deck, al lado de donde se baila Tango.
