Foursquare Tips

  • Try their chivitos sandwiches!
  • AMAZING!! Definitely try the chivito canadiense, my family is from Uruguay, and this one tastes as if it was made in Uruguay.... Delicious! I will be back, often! FYI: It's byob for now
  • This place is rocks
  • The signature dish is the hanger steak with chimichurri sauce. Medium rare is the way to go. The accompanying fries have the right amount of crispiness to them.
  • Happy hour is 2-for-1 sangria & beer. Sangria Blanca & Sangria Roja are both amazing (I like sangria on the sweeter side). They taste like juice & go down like water so be careful!
  • Charrua serves Uruguayan food. They take pride in their Uruguayan culture as they have Uruguayan wine & beer. Best know for their chivitos. Filet mignon was tender & the bread was fluffy & soft.
  • The interior is really cute. On beautiful days, they open up their huge window & guests are allowed to sit at the bench right by it (like I did!). They have a bunch of throw pillows there too!!!
  • Really Good and Authentic Uruguayan food. Even better than what you'll get in most places in Uruguay.
  • Highly recommend the el canadiense chivtos, a filet mignon sandwich topped with bacon, cheese, egg, caramelized onion, roasted red pepper, olives, lettuce, tomato, mayo with a side of fries.
  • starting from the bread to the sandwiches everything is perfect. I loved the canadian.
  • Must try El Cheto Chivito sandwich. Veggie, with portobello mushroom! Delicious! Also the vegetarian croquettes! Both a must have! Oh and the chocolate mousse dessert! Can't wait to be back!
  • Loved their chivito steak sandwich! Amazing empanadas and croquetas!
  • Their signature sandwich is good and apparently true to tradition, but doesn't bring anything exciting to the table and is a bit pricey at $13. Nice sidewalk facing seating.
  • Chivito(Little goat) national sandwich of Uruguay, shiny brioche, bulges with ham, egg, steak, bacon, olives, mozzarella, pickled peppers, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, and mayo.
  • Great service and kind staff. The chipirones were delicious, and the chivito canadiense is just like in Uruguay. The place is really nice.
  • New + apparently the 1st Uruguayan resturant in Manhattan. The appetizer + main course (el bolija) were flavorful. Bonus: Nice atmosphere (especially at night + a very friendly staff. BYOB for now.
  • This is a great place to have lunch or a date. Chivitos (Uruguayan-style sandwich) are the bomb diggity. The el canadiense is a blend of flavors savory and sour. For apps definitely get the croquetas.
  • Everything was amazing and the service was great! Corn empanadas, salmon and flan were fantastic!! Great music and vibe, a must with friends or a date!
  • Do not leave without trying the Salchichon Chocolate! Homemade dulce de leche, new favorite.
  • Try everything! Delicious food, great service.
