We had been recommended a different place for lunch, but it was closed on our day of visit. Fortunately for us we discovered this little gem instead! Thoroughly enjoyed our cheese and salami platter and wine for lunch. Felt like we had stepped back in...More

While the food range was limited to antipasto-style platters, it was all excellent and well presented, with several choices of price and volume. They feature Uruguayan produce, and some of the cheeses are both interesting and good. But you don't come here for the food...More

In a country where menus are lists of heavy meat entrees, this is a pleasant change. We accompanied our delicious locally-made wine with a shared plate of meat, cheese, and olives. It was a perfect light lunch.

Perfect place to enjoy one of the best "picadas" in Uruguay, including the famous "bondiola". There are options for all tastes and budgets and prices are quite fair compared to what they offer. Most cold cuts, cheese and wine are from the Colonia Department, so...More

This is not a restaurant, it is a wine bar. So if you are expecting to have a full meal it is not the place. However, if a section of cheese, hams and wines is what you seek, this is the perfect spot!

From outside, you can't imagine what you have inside. And the place is surprisingly cozy and different. Wide wine menu and different types of cheese are the main options of this site. They don't have a cuisine or a chef preparing different types of foods....More

What a lovely couple of hours. Knowledgeable staff that could explain options well. Beautiful small plates and lovely wines to match. There are only 6 tables so you will need to book at meal times but outside of that, just wander in. Just make sure...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.
