Fodor's Expert Review Parrilla la Balanza
It's a bit hard to believe a place as low-key and affordable as this traditional Uruguayan steakhouse exists in chic Punta del Este, but it does—and that's precisely why locals love it. Your best bet is to stick to steak and sides to share, including the platter of mini provoleta (baked, seasoned cheese) with a bottle of wine to wash it all down. Expect to wait for a table at prime mealtimes, but the friendly and fast waitstaff will have you feasting in no time.
