Martin Lavecchia worked and lived for nine years in Spain, where he trained at El Celler de Can Roca, a three stars Michelin and #1 in the 50 World's Best Restaurants of 2013; he also worked at the restaurant Alkimia in Barcelona.
Since 2012, he’s back in his native country of Uruguay and settled down in Montevideo where he opened his own restaurant in the Old Town called "FOC" which means “fire” in Catalan. In February 2016, he moved his restaurant to Punta Carretas, a posher neighborhood. The restaurant is spacious and beautifully designed in black with dark wood tables and comfortable chairs and sofas; it has two floors and a wonderful patio for summer lunch and dining.
Now, let’s talk about our dinner of Friday November 4th 2016: we chose the tasting menu of five dishes at 1,500 Uruguayan Pesos (50 Euros) which was the best quality/price meal that you can find anywhere in Uruguay.
The menu consisted of one amuse-bouche, an entrée, a fish dish, a meat dish and two desserts. It was simply wonderful, the best meal of our entire stay in Uruguay, besides the Bodega Bouza’s restaurant.
Each dish was well prepared and tasty, even the croquetas that our son had ordered were crispy and flavorsome, even our pre-dinner "FOC" cocktail was quite original.
The service was very nice and helpful, tried to speak some English.
The wine list had a very good local selection and international brands, with a nice choice of cocktails.
Martin Lavecchia is probably the best chef cooking in Montevideo at the moment, and FOC surely is the best restaurant in the whole Uruguay.
