La Huella among the 50 best restaurants in Latin America

The famous British magazine  “Restaurant” released this week its ranking of the 50 best restaurants in Latin America. These include two restaurants located in Punta del Este and Jose Ignacio.

The winners

Parador La Huella in Uruguay won 20th place and was awarded as the Best Restaurant in Uruguay, sponsored by Les Concierges.

It is the first time the prestigious publication, which for a decade publishes its list of the 50 best restaurants in the world, ranks Latin America´s best restaurants

The Peruvian restaurant “Astrid y Gaston”, located in Lima, took the first place in this Latin America selection, carried out by more than 250 experts of the hospitality industry.

Parador La Huella was number 20 of this selection of José Ignacio, which specializes in seafood and grilled food, run by Chef Alejandro Morales.

La Bourgogne was also awarded  number 42, with classic French cuisine, located in Punta del Este and directed by Jean Paul Bondoux.

The Restaurant magazine´s editor, William Drew, told the BBC: “Latin America has much to offer the rest of the world. In the past these were perhaps not as well known internationally, especially in Europe, but this is changing rapidly “.

He said that “today there are restaurants  in Latin America that can compete easily with any other restaurants  in the world.”

La Huella

Parador La Huella,  for those who do not know, is situated on the Brava beach in Jose Ignacio. It is  built on stilts on the sand and with an interior that gives a certain atmosphere of an ancient sailing cabin. In the evening , table shaded lamps provided soft lighting, allowing perfect scenes of the sunset with  great background music . Service at La Huella is impeccable, always making feel guests at home.

Specializing in sushi and grilled dishes, La Huella offers fine wines and a wide selection of beers and cocktails to keep guests relaxed at all times.

Despite the relaxed atmosphere, La Huella also offers plenty of  activities. The LaCoste Party, with which the La Huella opens the summer season in late December, is one of the most spectacular events of the summer.

In recent years La Huella has become the trendiest restaurant of Jose Ignacio. Shakira, Valeria Mazza or Naomi Campbell among others have all been seen in La Huella. Ranking La Huella  as one of the best restaurants in Latin America is a well deserved acknowledgment.
