Es Mercat

Seafood in Montevideo

If fish is your thing, Es Mercat is your place. Steer one block beyond the meat-crazed Mercado del Puerto to this Ciudad Vieja corner, where a rotating lineup of a half-dozen fresh-caught fish, from merluza (hake) to abadejo (pollock), gets scrawled on the blackboard daily. Your best bet? Solicit descriptions and recommendations from chef-owner Roberto and son Facundo.
