Being rates one of Eater's essential restaurants in Montevideo I had to check it out for lunch on my sightseeing day in the old city. Following recommendations I arrived early (around 12:15pm). The restaurant is quite small and all seating is around a counter facing...More

Thrilled to see a fabulous chef giving his personal attention to his creations at a long lunch counter where one would not be faulted to initially expect average food but that is certainly not the situation here! Friendly, engaging, attentive service. Reasonably priced. Another wonderful...More

Delicious food, beautiful presentation, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and a show all at the same time. There are no tables - you sit at what essentially is a lunch counter. The "kitchen" is right in front of you, on the other side of the counter,...More

Amazing, flavourful, fresh food with a great vibe! We made a point of visiting this place after a number of failed dining experiences and I am so glad we did. The beef salad is to die for!

This place is cool. Long table, everybody sits next to each other. Food is great, no killer prices... plates are medium sized, so beware to order an appetizer first. Good quality, desserts are really good. Definitely a great choice to go in the Old City...More

Don’t think it twice: Estrecho is your place to go. With only a USD25-35 budget you can have a Grilled Camembert or a Coconut Thai soup as an appetizer + an entrée such as Green Curry or the best Flounder with the best wasabi sauce...More

when we first walked in, we knew it was going to great...at each seat on the diner-like set up were well-dressed locals, chatting and watching food amazement before their eyes. The prep stations, grill, and at the end of the restaurant, the dishwashers--were all in...More

I popped in here for a late lunch (by American standards!) and found a delightful, cozy restaurant! We arrived around 1400 and bellied up to the bar without having to wait. I had an excellent Pad Thai dish with shrimp that was a lunch special...More
