La Susana offers travelers and locals alike the opportunity to enjoy a leisurely lunch to the cocktail hour.

Combining local and seasonal ingredients, the menu features traditional Uruguayan fare, including asado, complemented by a selection of VIK wines and cocktails. From 100 percent Uruguayan grass fed beef, to local white Corvina Ceviche and savory Calamares a la Plancha, executive chef Marcelo Betancourt highlights the flavors of the Southern Atlantic by focusing on the Uruguayan barbecue ritual for fish and meat. Using produce from La Susana’s own herb and vegetable garden, the restaurant offers fresh, local and organic Uruguayan cuisine.

The property offers fluid indoor-to-outdoor dining spaces and some communal seating. Five conjoining rooms with traditional Uruguayan thatched roofs surround an outdoor courtyard, and the front two rooms on either side offer fireplaces. Open exterior doors give way to expansive outdoor seating on the sand, set into the dunes. La Susana urges beachgoers to wander up for lunch and then return to the shore for a swim. With lounge chairs placed directly in the sand, La Susana encourages guests to unwind with a Christiania Caipiroska cocktail in hand.

La Susana is open daily for lunch, cocktails, dinner and after-dinner festivities.
