My partner and I visited this place one evening last November on returning from Montevideo hungry and tired.

From outside the pizza's looked nice, and the venue pleasant enough, that I thought we could have a pleasant evening.
I can't say anything bad about the service - it was moderately busy, and the staff were polite and prompt. The place appears to offer take-away / delivery options, and you could see some activity going on over and above the in house service.

Unfortunately, when our pizza's did arrive, and while presentation wise they looked good, as we expected, the flavours left us sorely disappointed. Each of our pizza's lacked a mix that really did anything to the palate, and the base didn't have any richness or softness to it, as I recall.

I've since searched and read a number of reviews for this place - it seems very popular with the locals, so it does make me question whether we just had one unlucky experience.

That said, I have yet to find a pizza place in Maldonado or Punta that really delights the palate.

I live in Punta del Este and have been to Tomate y Queso 6-8 times so far. The pizzas are very good, the wine selection is excellent for this type of place, the beer is cold, the service is super-friendly and efficient. The prices are more than reasonable for this area. There is nothing more one could ask of a pizzeria. It's the best I've found in the area, including the fancier places. The menu includes a few items other than pizza. I tried a vegetable pie and it, too, was excellent. Highly recommended overall.
