Montevideo Restaurant Guide

When in Montevideo, you'll see a variety of beef dishes including asado (barbecue) and parrillada (beef and entrails). Italian immigrants have had a solid influence on the cuisine, so pasta -especially on Sundays- is a very big deal. Faina (chick pea pancake wedges) and chivito (akin to a "philly cheese steak sandwich) are also quite popular. These folks love their breads, biscuits, lamb, soups, mate (tea beverage), espresso, and milk! Lunch and supper are the larger meals of the day, and wines and beer frequently are consumed with these.

Popular Restaurants in Montevideo:
 
La Catedral de los Sandwiches Confiteria is a traditional type of eatery, where you'll find salads, soups, pastries, and refreshments including wine and beer. Located at Sarandi 502 and open all day, this is a great place for a reasonable and classic lunch in Montevideo!
 
La Corte, open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM for lunch Mondays through Fridays, is located at Peatonal Sarandi 586, Plaza Matriz. This is a fairly upscale establishment that does offer quality at a reasonable price "far from the maddening crowd." You'll find basics such as steak with onions and mozzarella, international cuisine, fish entrees with savory sauces, and a wonderful array of desserts. La Corte's supper menu is more upscale and elegant! For more information, they can be reached at 02 -916 -0435, or at http://www.lacorte.com.uy/.
 
Panini's will remind you of that Italian influence alive and well in Montevideo. With an array of pastas, you'll have plenty of moderately priced selections from which to choose. The Ravioli Neri with smoked salmon and black pasta comes highly recommended. Located at Bacacay 1339 Ciudad Vieja, their phone number is 02 916 8760. Panini's is open Mondays through Thursdays from Noon to 3:00 PM and from 8:00 PM to midnight, on Fridays from Noon to 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM to 1:00 AM, and on Saturdays from Noon to 3:00 PM and from 4:00 PM to 1:00 AM. Average meal cost is around 15 USD.
 
Mercado del Puerto, the market place quite near the port, is not going to be a tame experience! You have the bustle of shoppers about you! However, for an inexpensive quick lunch of meats and vegetables while you join the throng, this is a fabulous cultural introduction!

The Peso Uruguayo is the official currency. Larger hotels, restaurants and shops accept major credit cards, and increasingly more Uruguayan ATMs accept North American or European credit cards. U.S. dollars are accepted only in some shops and some taxi drivers accept U.S. dollars.
