We had an enjoyable lunch in the conservatory. Both the steak and fish dishes were generous and delicious. Service was a bit relaxed though they were busy. We're on holiday so didn't mind it being slow. Lots of local tourists.

We visited Colonia on a beautiful fall day in May and returned to Meson de la Plaza, a restaurant we had visited five years earlier. If you're looking for a nice, even somewhat "classy" place for lunch, this is the restaurant to choose. The menu is diverse, with an excellent wine list (be sure to try the excellent Uruguayan wines).... More

This restaurant our guide took us to for lunch. We had a preset menu. The food was adequate but plentiful. Nice location right on the main plaza. As someone else stated, there was a lone singer for entertainment. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with antiques and painitngs. There is a nice outside seating area where the locals were eating. Service... More

The group arrived for lunch in a separate room set up for us. It was nice to have the room to ourselves for this adventure. A nice setting in the old town. The service was quick and good. The meal was OK, we had some type of beef with rice. Although tasty the meat was tough and grizzly. There are... More

Four of us had an enjoyable and tasty lunch here today. A local singer enhanced the ambiance of our outdoor fining experience on the patio. I would recommend the tenderloin espanol (pieces not one big filet for full disclosure) and the homemade flan with dulce de leche.

Strictly for tourists so I suspect that one would never find a local in this restaurant. It sits right in the center plaza of the old city, people and buses constantly passing by. No air conditioning, bathrooms of questionable cleanliness and noise level high. Indifferent service, at least when we had the misfortune to arrive at the same time as... More

This restaurant was recommended to me, and I was attracted by the ambiance. It was a chilly night, so I did not take advantage of the lovely patio area. Had bife de chorizo, which was OK, but lots of sauce and the meat itself was so-so. They had a guitarist/singer who was quite good. I would not recommend this restaurant... More

The food was very good, good menu selections and plentiful. Not to European standards, but very tasty. Staff very good, although despite advising of my partners allergy to cheese, first course that he ordered had cheese in it. However staff helpful and spoke good English, large wine selection, but only Uruguay wines. Reasonably priced and conveniently located close to old... More
