Does anyone have recommendations for good reasonably priced food (~$10 USD) in Punta Del Este? The prices don't seem to support the quality (but I get it, it's really touristy so people pay it). Are there more local-friendly places?
Also, I'm here after high season, so lots of things are closed. Any tips to still find decent nightlife?
Hello Eric,as you probably know,prices in Punta could be outrageous. But here some suggestions:
La Nueva Avenida - Address: Lenzina between Av. Francia y Av. Artigas, parada 2 Pta. del Este (home made)
La Pancheria - address: 24 street, between 29 y 30
I hope it will give you an idea.Enjoy your trip.

Hi Eric!! If you like sea food you can go to "El Ártico", where you can choose between a great variety of dishes and enjoy very nice views (specially sunsets). Its a kind of fast food, where quality and price are very good! Hope you like it!
