The place was transformed from an old fish market to the point of tourist concentration that is today, concentrating around Uruguayan handicrafts, coffee shops, exchange houses and some occasional live music bands.
Being a tourist place it is true that prices will be somewhat higher than those you can find in other street bars, but not much and the quality is very good. Roasts of strip, chorizos, quadrillas, steaks and black pudding await you for about 12 euros per person - maximum, and asking for more than one thing - in an atmosphere where currantes, business people and foreigners are mixed to download endless conversations in their central courtyard
To get there you will not have any problem since it is in the very Old City, a meeting point for many line buses. Just take one that goes there and ask when you are there. It only opens at noon because the area is not very safe at night.
My great guide and friend Alberto - a huge greeting from Bariloche- invited me to eat in that place but not before noticing a famous half and half, two glasses of sweet wine typical of Uruguay that enters like water and leaves you with a feeling of joy quite important.
Without a doubt, a gastronomic event that you cannot miss in Montevideo.
