Restaurants in Montevideo serve steak -- just as high quality as Argentine beef -- and usually include a number of stews and seafood selections as well. You will find the native barbecue, in which beef and lamb are grilled on the fire, in any of the city's grill restaurants, referred to interchangeably in Spanish as parrillas or parrilladas. Sales tax on dining in Montevideo is a whopping 23%. There is usually a table cover charge, called the cubierto, as well -- usually about U$25 per person.
