A carnivore’s nirvana in a seafood-centric region, this family-run place cooks tender, richly flavored meat over a hot charcoal fire. A flank steak here takes on sublime qualities usually reserved for loftier cuts, and it is served with a simple salad and homemade bread. Portions are huge; try adding an order of grilled vegetables and splitting the two. The varied menu includes chicken, pizza, and salads. All are excellent, but don’t miss the empanadas, a light, crispy Uruguayan version filled with meat, cheese, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach or corn. The friendly, hard-working staff can get bogged down on busy nights, which are more and more frequent as the restaurant’s popularity grows. Avoid going at dusk; the restaurant is as popular with mosquitos as with people.
