El Chancho y la Coneja

Uruguayan in Punta del Este

Owners Horacio (the pig) and Karina (the rabbit) named this rustic backstreet hideaway for their Chinese zodiac animals. Well-chosen blues and jazz numbers, yellow brick walls, artsy light fixtures and distressed-wood benches set an atmospheric backdrop for delicious grilled meat and fish, homemade pasta (try the ricotta, basil, walnut and bacon pierogi, inspired by Karina's Polish grandmother) and more.
