Mercado del Puerto

Lonely Planet review

This converted market on Ciudad Vieja's waterfront remains a Montevideo classic, even if the steady influx of cruise ships into the adjacent port has made it increasingly pricey. Take your pick of the densely packed parrillas (steakhouses displaying immense racks of grilled meat and veggies) and pull up a stool. Weekends are ideal for savoring the market’s vibrant energy.
