We were so glad that this place was open on our final day in Colonia de Sacramento. We booked a table for lunch at 1.30pm and left there rather merry on wonderful Uruguayan wine and full to the brim with delicious local cheeses and cured...More

The menu consists of a range of platters of cheeses, cured meats and little pies, but together with an excellent bottle of local Malbec it was the perfect lunch for us on a day trip from Buenos Aires. The restaurant is in a very old...More

Fine wine, great experience, amazing background. The place has it all. If you’re a fan of good wine and cheese, this is the place. Get yourself a seat in the little backyard they have, it’s really cozy and they play a bit of nice music...More

We got to Colonia on a very rainy day and got tired of walking around in the rain so we showed up here very early for local standards to have some lunch. The host was super friendly and welcoming, speaks good English and knows his...More

We should have come here straight away instead of being burned at other 'hot spots' in Colonia. If I were back in Colonia I would visit here again, and definitely ask their recommendations on anywhere else to try. Many thanks El Buen Suspiro.

So pleased we came across this lovely place, tucked away down a cobbled side street - it was a delightful place to while away an hour sitting in the courtyard and enjoying a plate of local bread, cheese, olive oil and sausage. Also enjoyed chatting...More

We offer a local cuisine based on the best artisanal products of Colonia, in the most emblematic street of the old quarter of Colonia del Sacramento, the “Barrio Sur”, a World Heritage site, in a typical house of Portuguese construction of early 1700s. Wines of local vineyards, artisanal cheeses, homemade jams, olive oil, spirits, grappas, and typical pastries are part of the menu, to take or to taste at the store. Whether in a small and intimate room or at the courtyard, you can taste different appetizers based on a selection of artisanal local cheeses served with sweet and sour sauces, combined with salami, sausages, ham, vegetable tarts, and chicken brochette. In winter, homemade soups of onion or pumpkin; in summer, salads.
