I've been at Meson de la Plaza, in the historic part of Colonia Del Sacramento with a business party. Food was basic/average (my deep fried bread crumb covered fillet was really basic and French fries were the frozen type). Our party ordered the expensive red wine and it was bad. The waiter recognized it and accepted to change, unfortunately that... More

The place is great, full of old luxury furniture, the food was almost great only complain the potatoes were terribly cooked. But the music the enviroment and the service fullfilled my expectations. My visit to colonia was short and I am glad that I decided to take the lunch here. Prices not expensive not cheap. Around $25 for 2 beers,... More

Have been here several times for both lunch and dinner. Generally a good option and a safe bet when in Colonia. Some places in the old town are hit or miss but this place is consistent and good.

Not a high standard of restaurants in this areas. This one seems to be one of the best. I had fish and it was ok. You can't find fresh fish anywhere. Try to get a table in the patio, garden inside the restaurant

We picked this place randomly. The interior is beautiful and old style. We ordered pasta and wine, and it was okay, but nothing special. It was a Saturday night so the place was quite crowded with families, and the service staff seemed to be very busy. Also, the roof was leaking (It was a rainy day), so some of the... More

Our tour company arranged our lunch here. Are there lots of tourists? Yes. But, the good folks who live in Colonia probably don't regularly frequent white table cloth restaurants - the town now largely subsists on tourism. The interior is beautiful and there was a live guitar player providing music. We both had beef dishes and Uruguayan red wine in... More

Friendly service, they replaced a steak that was over done. The decor is lovely, has 3 nice areas. Menu is not expansive with cuts of meat available, but both the Spanish style and regular grilled tenderloin were delicious, even though all were slightly over cooked to what was requested

The restaurant was recommended, but disappointing. We both had the salmon. Both came luke warm and my wife's was very thin, it seemed the end of the end. Staff was rude when we complained. A pity, as the place has a very nice decoration and a good atmosphere. Try to find another place for your meal. There are plenty other... More

Beautiful, beautiful restaurant. Menu is full of delicious options for a fair price. You can choose your table from three ambiences: to the right a more Spanish style room, Portuguese to the left, and a open space in the back.
