I am going to start writing about restaurants in my English blog (there are some in my Spanish blog and are generally negative), and will start with La Huella of serial restaurant developer Martin Pitaluga.

La Huella is a restaurant built over a sand dune facing the Atlantic Ocean in Jose Ignacio, a small village East of Punta del Este. While I have been to many seaside restaurants, mostly sailing around the Mediterranean, but some in other places such as Sag Harbor or South Beach in Miami, I have never experience as good quality food, atmosphere and decore as in La Huella. The food is simple, local, and of great quality. I recommend the grilled squid and the corvina.

For those who like steak, the entrecote is one of those Argentine cholesterol bombs, huge, juicy, amazingly good. Desserts? Volcan de Dulce de Leche tops it all. On the negative I can say that it´s super hard to get a table. You may try to say you are a reader of my blog….who knows, maybe that helps….

Where would I find it, is it close to Faro? Any chance to find places to rent at this time of year?

Hi, I arrived today from Jose Ignacio, Uruguay and just run into your blog praising Martin Pitaluga charming Parador La Huella.
So I felt the need to also comment on the fabulous job done by Martin Pitaluga himself, Guzman, Pini Caraballo and many other Faro de Jose Ignacio neighbors in trying to protect this beautiful seaside village .
Although that was not an easy task at first, thanks to Fundacion Ciudad Forum: “Que Jose Ignacio queremos ?”, consciousness on the need for a planned and sustainable growth in J. I., is now on the rise.
For next summer they ( Martin, Guzman…) are planning an awareness public campaign, to keep Jose Ignacio streets and beaches clear from contamination & garbage, that definitely deserves everybody´s endorsement.

Just came back after 1 moth in Uruguay. I went to La heulla several times and enjoyed every second of it. In fact I miss it a lot. It is the best sea side restaurant in the world. Even if the food was terrible, it would still be the best seaside restaurant in the world. In order to understand, you need to go!!!
