After reading so many good reviews we went for the long awaited dinner at La Bodeguita. Everything started very well. Service was being very good, and the food, o boy, amazing indeed. The problem started when we went paying with the credit card: I asked to check the bill since I don't like to pay without checking it: the manager... More

The chivito en plato was the grandest disappointment I had on this entire trip to South America. It was a lump of melted cheese, with pieces of steak, with fried potatoes balls. Horrible, fatty, one big cholesterol explosion. The sorentinos in fruit salsa, however, tasted really nice. We skipped the desert our of fear of being disappointed. The place has... More

La bodeguita it's a restaurant that caters more for families or for groups of friends than for couples. Nonetheless, we decided to eat there based on some recommendations. And I'm happy we did. The salmon ravioli was exquisite. Kudos to the chef! Highly recommendable.

Came here for dinner on our first day in Colonia. It was a Tuesday evening in low season and this was one of the only places open! Food was fine - my boyfriend's burger was huge, and good, while my pasta dish was a bit bland. Service was very friendly but also very slow! It looked like most people coming... More

Although pizzas are commonplace in South America, they're often not the best. This place, however, makes delicious little pizzas which are really cheap and served very quickly. Sitting on the terraces overlooking the sea is lovely. I'd reccomend the broccoli pizza, controversial.

We had lunch in a terrace with a fantastic view of the River Plate. The food was excellent. We had tenderloin with onion marmalade and rigatoni pasta and both dishes were perfect. We hope to come back soon!

On a beautifull sunny day you have a very nice view over the river plate. Inside is kind of noisy and dark. The food is relatively simple but ok.

Good location, terrace in front of the river. Standard Uruguayan food. A place for young people, it has positive energy.
