  • We went twice to the market, the first time we stayed at the restaurant, we ate just one dish for two people, and take beer and good service, sit at the bar, on our second trip we stayed at the resulting el podium, eat an Octopus input for those who like it was the best I've ever had, and then we ordered an lamb for 2 wasn't so much food as Veronica , but was very tasty, for those not familiar, the market is a shed where has several restaurants all good looking didn't see much price disparity among them, will greatly please the visitor, recommend pay on a credit card because it has the VAT discount

  • The market itself is not big at all, it has some craft shops and souvenirs. No doubt the big attraction here are the restaurants, or its giant grills and full of roasts, assado as it is called, there are also stuffed peppers, sausages and cheeses pretty much tasty! It is located in old town, next to the pier of the port, where it was old center of the Uruguay's capital. Access is easy, you can go from Independence Square, worth the visit, but be careful: make time for a meal as it is impossible to resist the smell of the roasted meats! Options are not lacking and prices are varied, but in general the values ​​are even slightly below average for other restaurants of the same genre in the city. In addition to the traditional Uruguayan beers, there are several wine and some sparkling wines. The tip, even with all eating, is to let a side place for an ice cream. The ice cream stand has several flavors, one better than the other, choose one and take a walk, explore the region and the market environs!
  • One of the most unique places I've ever eaten in the world. Wish I lived closer so I could visit more often. Plenty of great restaurants with tremendous atmosphere.
  • This massive conglomeration of parrillas, wine stores, crafts vendors, is a must visit in the Old City! I can't recall if Saturday or Sunday is main day, but do find out and make a trip. Bring your appetitite.....the food is beyond belief and not that expensive. Highly recommended!
  • Excellent place for the hungry or thirsty person
  • Must visit if you're Montevideo. The sights, sounds, smells, smoke all add to the amazing atmosphere. And the food is incredible.
