  • A stroll through the old town of montevideo, where you can eat good food, and buy half and half of Roldós which is typical and unique Montevideo, then you can visit the Museum of Carnival to this closely

  • The mercado del puerto is one of the most classic attractions of Montevideo. Almost obligatory stop for typical lunch, however prices are Uruguayan salted as well for tourists. The region is not very safe to walk. Be careful and watch your walk around the nearby streets.

  • A very interesting place with a number of restaurants cooking lots of meat. Smells great, costs a lot. The empanada place has great selection and very cheap prices.
  • Very nice place to eat local food, and especially parillas. A lot of souvenir shops are located next to the market.
  • Beautiful place, delicious Uruguayan food.
  • The food at most restaurants is great. A bit too pricey though. Also what's with charging for the silverware!
  • Full of many parrillas, this is a great place to experience the feel of the Montevideo meat culture.
