Pizza is supposed to be great here, nothing special really. Main courses are few and not particularly good. Why the beef served was not good in this URuguayan restaurant? Shame. Went with my daughter and kids and although it was well recommended, my suggestion is to go there for a drink at sunset and forget dinner. Also, during summer nights... More

After 2 night of searching for a good, reasonably priced, vegetarian-friendly meal in Colonia, we chanced upon this lovely place that clearly is doing something right. The food we ordered (pizza and pasta) was tasty and inexpensive. Our one complaint would be that it took a long while for it to come. Location is lovely, across the road from the... More

La Bodeguita is located in the historic part of the city. It is in front of the river shore and has a wonderful terrace where you can have a drink and eat something looking at the river, the islands near the shore an the awesome Colonia sunsets. The food is very good and the crew is very kind and helpful.... More

After reading so many good reviews we went for the long awaited dinner at La Bodeguita. Everything started very well. Service was being very good, and the food, o boy, amazing indeed. The problem started when we went paying with the credit card: I asked to check the bill since I don't like to pay without checking it: the manager... More

The chivito en plato was the grandest disappointment I had on this entire trip to South America. It was a lump of melted cheese, with pieces of steak, with fried potatoes balls. Horrible, fatty, one big cholesterol explosion. The sorentinos in fruit salsa, however, tasted really nice. We skipped the desert our of fear of being disappointed. The place has... More

La bodeguita it's a restaurant that caters more for families or for groups of friends than for couples. Nonetheless, we decided to eat there based on some recommendations. And I'm happy we did. The salmon ravioli was exquisite. Kudos to the chef! Highly recommendable.

Came here for dinner on our first day in Colonia. It was a Tuesday evening in low season and this was one of the only places open! Food was fine - my boyfriend's burger was huge, and good, while my pasta dish was a bit bland. Service was very friendly but also very slow! It looked like most people coming... More

Although pizzas are commonplace in South America, they're often not the best. This place, however, makes delicious little pizzas which are really cheap and served very quickly. Sitting on the terraces overlooking the sea is lovely. I'd reccomend the broccoli pizza, controversial.
