BEEN THERE! WANNA GO THERE!

The Spain’s Cultural Center in Montevideo is a nice place to make a break in a walk across the center of the capital of Uruguay. The building previously was the famous commercial establishment ‘Casa Mojana’ —hardware store, glassware, locksmithing, papers and bazaar—. In its last floor is placed the coffeeshop, a beautiful place to have lunch and rest rest surrounded from culture.

Don Koto

recommendation by andina

fresh & funky

Uruguayan cuisine is mostly based on meat. Don Koto is the place to try it all. This is the type of restaurant locals know by heart but tourist hardly ever reach. That "real" flavor makes it highly enjoyable. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. Almost every working actor in Montevideo eats in or has his/her play sponsored by this restaurant. That adds a bohemian vibe that's worth experiencing.

La Ronda Café

If you want to know who's who in the Uruguayan cultural scene, La Ronda is the place to be. Filmmakers, writers and every foreign artist that hits the city, can be found in this hipster Montevidean spot. Djs play their vintage vinyls while you eat or have a drink. I highly recommend their famous "masticables" (an Uruguayan version of Mexican burritos) and their fantastic caipiroshkas (caipirinhas made of vodka).
