Colonia is a lovely place, sure. It's also a tourist trap. That's not necessarily a bad thing--being a tourist can be fun--but you need to be aware of what it means to be a tourist. One thing it means is that local people often have very ambivalent feelings toward you (which is understandable). The bad rep that tourists and the... More

Nice terrace on the cobblestones in the old town. Some items seem a bit overpriced (cappucino for $u 150), but we had some (four) empanadas and two softdrinks for $u 320, a good price for this location. Food and service were good, would go there again.

Very nice cafe with food, drinks and desserts. They also serve a full mate kit for 150 Uruguayan Pesos. It includes a bag of mate, a thermos full of hot water and the traditional mate cup. One of the only places in Colonia that serves traditional mate.

This is a little gem in a very touristy town. I enjoyed a pot of tea and a slice of cake here for under $10 USD. It's a relaxing and beautiful place to sit for the afternoon. The food was great and there is a nice little lunch menu that I will try tomorrow.

I am in Colonia at least once a week for business. As much as I love Colonia and the historic district, many of the restaurants (especially with river views) feel like overpriced tourist traps. For instance, a recent lunch at a different restaurant with an investor client from South Carolina cost $40 for a simple salad and agua con gas... More
