El Berretin

Uruguayan in Montevideo

Serving a mix of Uruguayan grilled-meat classics and lighter fare such as Caesar salads, this historic art-deco corner grocery was converted into a popular resto-bar in 2016. Its most evocative feature is the berretin (secret underground hiding place used by 1970s Tupamaro rebels) discovered by workers during renovation, now preserved under glass in the restaurant's back room.
