Ciudad Vieja Restaurants

Restaurant Overview:
Ciudad Vieja offers mostly traditional Uruguayan parrilla (grill) food, save for a few exceptions with modern takes on classic dishes. The restaurants at Mercado del Puerto grill up meat and fresh fish and is an absolute must for at least one meal. For some nouveau Uruguayan cuisine, check out Estrecho or Wasa Ethnik Food for lunch. Don’t forget to try a chivito, a type of sandwich that is an Uruguayan staple, at any number of restaurants in the area. Sarandi is a good street to "wing it" and drop in to a restaurant that catches your eye, though this gets significantly harder at night as few restaurants are open for dinner.


Nightlife Overview:
Despite attempted restorations, a nocturnal renaissance for Ciudad Vieja has yet to be seen. Most flock to Positas after hours, but those determined to rage in the Old Center still have some key places to focus on. Calle Bartolomé Mitre between Sarandí and Buenos Aires forms the bulk of the “downtown” scene, with plenty of good options for getting your drink on. The street is lively, unlike the rest of the barrio at night, so you’ll be in good bar-hopping company. There are some other hotspots near and around Teatro Solis, but set out with the place in mind, lest you meander through dark, barren and sketchy streets: sure to kill any buzz.
