Uva House - Restaurant Montevideo - Uruguay

Set in an elegant Colonial house on a quiet street, this bistro is chic and formal, yet relaxed; Uva House is quite possibly the best restaurant find in Pocitos. The mahogany and eggplant exterior is imposing, but don’t let it frighten you, as inside the staff and atmosphere are warm and inviting. Be sure to make a reservation on weekends: The dining room is very small and the restaurant prides itself on providing a quality, intimate dining experience. The Chilean owner-chef Juan Pablo will come to your table to personally explain each of the dishes available that night (the menu changes daily). It’s hard to tell whether or not he was pandering to the gringos, but we were told that his friend personally caught the fish we were about to eat. After a few bites, it really didn't matter to anyone where the food came from, only that it was good. Even the bread and olive-oil fusion served before the meal was worth writing home about. Uva House is pricey, though maybe not compared to its equivalent back home. Still, you’ll want to bring plastics with you.
