Lonely Planet review

With its blazing fire and irresistible aroma of grilled meat, this popular parrilla epitomizes the Mercado de la Abundancia’s cozy, relaxed ambience. Lunchtime prices are about half what you’d pay at the more touristy Mercado del Puerto – the menu ejecutivo includes a mixed grill and a glass of wine for UR$220. There’s live jazz two Thursdays per month, plus tango or salsa on Saturday nights.
