This restaurant review for Rocco Resto is long overdue. We discovered Rocco Resto our first week in Montevideo (since it’s just a few blocks from Punta Trouville, the apart hotel we stayed at when we first arrived in Uruguay) and we quickly became “regulars.”
Rocco Resto is a great place to eat at or enjoy a bottle of wine, whether you’re just visiting or living in Uruguay. The owners Ali and Gerado and the entire staff are extremely friendly (and most of them speak English).
The prices at Rocco Resto are reasonable, similar to other restaurants in the Pocitos area of Montevideo. The atmosphere is casual and they also have a bar in the restaurant where you can watch the futbol match and have a liter of beer.
They have a little bit of everything on their menu and everything is good. Brian’s favorite is the beef stroganoff and Chrystal’s is the chicken curry (sorry, we don’t have pictures of either of these, but they are great!).
We were just in Rocco Resto over the weekend and found out that they’re having a deck built this week, just in time for summer. So if you’re in the area, stop by Rocco Resto and enjoy a meal or drink.
Rocco Resto is located on 21 de Setiembre and Francisco Vidal, one block from the Rambla.
