In one corner of the popular neighborhood of Pocitos you can find this wonderful ice cream shop. It is handmade and is an exceptional, highly recommended! The caramel sabayon temptation and Italian are two of the ice creams that I would recommend to try.
What a charming place! It's popular and full of old ladies willing to sweeten life! Cake's is famous in Montevideo for it's cakes and sweets that are a delight and the portions are so generous that it is best to share. There's a variety of teas, juices, and Italian cappuccino, and served in a crystal glass that I'd recommend. For €10 we had a stupendous meringue, caramel and dark chocolate cake, a couple of coffees and mineral water. Not cheap, but Montevideo is an expensive city. Also if you go on a Thursday, there is a fashion show (fashion for mature age bracket) and then do a mixed raffle with cosmetics, kitchenware, plants, and even a trip. Hilarious, I think I'll go back.
This is a unique restaurant in Uruguay. I think a lot of the food in the country is a bit repetitive but at this restaurant, it was really flavorful. The Uruguayans eat a lot of really good quality meat which is nice. I definitely recommend Partridge restaurant. You won´t regret it!
If you go to Montevideo I recommend going to the ice cream shop Artigiano. In the center of Pocitos with a view of the famous Rambla, this is a place you must visit. Inside it is very comfortable with a good atmosphere and the ice cream is exquisite. In winter you can also have a capuchinno and cakes. One of its peculiarities is that this shop is that they have brought together ice cream for kids and adults, called Delidrops. They are in the form of little balls and frozen at -40 degrees, which makes it the coldest ice cream in the world.
I love ice cream, and this Uruguayan chain makes great varieties. There are several outlets in Montevideo, with a huge number of flavours, making it impossible to choose just one ... but if I had to recommend something, it would be the dulce de leche. Be sure to try it!
This charming and pretty cafe attracted us with its good decorations. I loved the way they have joined housing and business. The sunlight coming through the roof, rolls, and delicious cookies, internet, coffee, and good conversation with good friends, who needs more? Near the cafe at the front, also we found a few small, very tasteful shops with a few articles!
Here in Brazil, usually rotisserie food is to take home isn't it? Well, not here in Uruguay, its absolutely home cooking, with the owner cooking and her son walking around in slippers. The owners are very friendly! The food is tasty, but the menu is short, with only 4-5 options; the place is very nice, and the price more than fair.
Montevideo is not only grills and meat restaurants. The proof is this pleasant restaurant / cafe / bar / bakery (yes, yes, bakery). With a modern, urban style, attentive staff, and a fine, but not too broad a menu that is surprising and pleasing to the palate, and is a refreshing change in this city. Price about 15-20 pesos.
If visiting Montevideo, this is a great place to pass by. It now functions as a restaurant and a ballroom but it used to be a luxury hotel. Located in El Prado, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of the city, I definitely recommend it.
You can enjoy the typical atmosphere with a magnificent grill and live music. On the weekends you can also enjoy a fair of antiques and artist exhibitions. If you like meat this is one of the best places.
