Great new restaurant in Jose Ignacio, Uruguay

  • 2

The first new restaurant in ages has opened here in Jose Ignacio, near Punta del Este, and the food is fantastic.

It's chef Mario Mori from La Commedia in Montevideo; La Commedia now has its summer home at a hotel called Posada Azul Marino. Last night we ate risotto with baby squid and caramelized chives, ravioli stuffed with crab and parmesan cream, grilled black bass with fresh herbs, and a dark chocolate coupe with roasted mango, pistachio and curry, among other things.

Here's the info: +598 486 2363, Rt 10 Km 185 (that's where you turn and drive about a minute inland), www.azulmarino.com.uy.

  1. Is La Commedia in Montevideo open in January?

    1. Exigente, this is peer reviewed site; not for the obvious owner (one posting) to place an ad.
