Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay, is a charming, cosmopolitan city, offering the visitor a taste of colonial days in the Ciudad Vieja, or old city, a choice of sandy beaches, nightlife, cultural and artistic events and a pleasant climate.
Uruguay reflects European traditions in some of its cuisine, as well as influences from neighboring countries. Like Argentina to the south, Uruguay's parrillas are popular eating places, where meat and seafood are tradtionally prepared and served. Dining in Montevideo is late, so grab a snack if you can't wait until nine or later to dine.
