Café Picasso

Top choice seafood in Piriápolis

Down a residential backstreet several blocks from the beach, septuagenarian chef-owner Carlos has converted his carport and front room into an informal, colorfully decorated restaurant with an open-air grill. Locals chat astride plastic chairs and listen to tango recordings while Carlos cooks up some of the best fish anywhere on Uruguay’s Atlantic coast, along with paella (UR$590) on Sundays.
