    The "cubierto" (service surchage) at the steakhouses is ridiculous. Enquire about this before choosing a restaurant. It is for the breadsticks and cutlery and would be charged even if you left the breadsticks and ate with your bare hands, not that you would. But they do not inform you of it, you just get a nasty surprise on the cheque.

    Montevideo, Montevideo & Surroundings, Uruguay
    Montevideo is a very nice place to know. Locals are very friendly and traditionals/conservatives. They love "mate" (local infusion) and they are the best drinkers of this in all South America. You should go to "mercado del puerto" on a Saturday or Sunday noon to see a nice local "feria" and enjoy many diferent restaurants specialiced in "parrilla" (barbaque), while enjoying the Murgas (local carnival music). DonĀ“t forget to try "medio y medio". You should go to the "Tristan Narvaja Feria" to see a very traditional market in the street where you can buy almost everything used new.

    recommend visiting the old port area in particular the mercado del puerto best atmosphere is usually saturday when the locals let the hair down also very good for arts and crafts as the area is a tourist hotspot avoid going when a cruise ships in a prices increase substanually. recommend roldos and the outside seated restraunts for better service also for quieter beaches head further out on the rambla past carrasco where the beaches are generally quieter although still white and sandy and generally cleaner. For the perfect sunrise go to any beach cuidad del costa although to see perfect sunset head on the rambla to the w lounge and amusement park area . however goto a bay in punta for the perfect sunset in uruguay Also be aware that all taxis should carry a day and night rate in the back check this against the meter because they do try it on. generally the uruguayans are very friendly and thoroughly recommend a visit the local wine medio y medio is delicious
