Live music! Go there and enjoy a nice wine or local beers. Menu has several options, I recommend the ravioli!

Attractive restaurant with nice employees. Food was good but not superb. They had live music the night we were there. They need to get some more waiters as there were only two to serve many tables!

Usually lunches included on day tours are mediocre but we were pleasantly surprised to discover that this lunch gave us a choice of three mains and two desserts. I opted for the steak with mash and some vegetable that escapes my memory, my wife opted for the fish. I enjoyed a local beer while we waited. Both meals were excellent,... More

We were recommended this restaurant for lunch and as we approached thought it didn't look as appealing as some we had passed. However if you go in, do go straight through the dining rooms and go out to the garden area at the back which is shaded by trees and umbrellas and is a very attractive spot for lunch. We... More

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

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
