  • The estancia del puerto is one of the many restaurants in the old port market. In my opinion, this is the best of all. The welcome is friendly, the ultra fast service and the meat is excellent, both in terms of quality and quantity. In more wine (cabernet sauvignon from casa) is delicious and affordable (the equivalent of €10 the bottle). You can choose to eat at the counter, which is much more interesting, or sit at a table. In addition to being a showcase of what is eaten in Uruguay, the place is incredible. The estancia is open daily (inquire before). One thing is certain, the Saturday is the best day to go. Attention: totally not recommended for vegetarians!

  • The port market was market, with simple eaters, but eventually ended up gathering a wide variety of restaurants, from the simple and cheap to some of excellent quality and high prices, all in a climate that is always festive. In general, the grill is the best, and you can choose; fish and seafood are good or very good in some restaurants, less in others.

  • Classical place of Montevideo where people from all generations gather. Mixed with the smell of roast meat, or the more tasty sandwiches, made at the time accompanied by a medium and medium, swallow created long ago years. Where an accordion music is coupled with a painting of the candombe and the patter of some puffers space I met through my father 50 years ago and which still retains all the best Montevideo charm. Impossible to leave go somewhere who come to Montevideo.
