A very good deal for lunch in Montevideo

Jump to last reply

it is no secret that everything has gone up in Argentina and Uruguay. i was there a few days ago and was unpleasantly surprised.
My first lunch was at the Alliance Francaise in Montevideo, there is a nice informal bistrot in the back of this French teaching house.However a simple lunch for my friend and I with only one dessert ,not very good by the way, no coffee, two tasty main dishes but nothing fancy one was a vegetable quiche , mine the least expensive fish in the Montevido market called merluza, two house glasses of wine was $60 dollars for both.On the other hand I was happy with a lovely excecutive lunch at the Belmont House Hotel for those not familiar this is a top
Boutique hotel, chosen by famous guests like Prince Charles , challenging all odds an
impeccably served lunch in the hotel's beautiful restaurant facing their garden was better and less expensive.
The Belmont offers a great menu with several choices for 17 dollars. We had a quality fish with vegetables in a delicious sauce and a chocolate dessert....I thought It was a good deal.
Actually all other meals both in Buenos Aires and Montevideo were more expensive, I believe this is a good tip for those visiting the River Plate cities.
