Nice restaurant, slow and forgetful service, average food

We sat outside in the plaza and service was very bad, they would not even look at us to see if we needed something. Forgot my drink and it didn't come till I was nearly finished my main. The pasta was nice but very small. Steak was good. Tricky place for kids, they can play in the plaza, street... read more

This restaurant is set in the main square of Colonia Del Sacramento. The decor is simple and has a nice ambiance. The service is prompt and the waiter was helpful and courteous. I ordered the battered seafood plate. I should have known better after seeing the next table leave half of theirs untouched. The seafood was completely ruined because it... More

We went here expecting to find typical Uruguayan food (because of the name "Pulperia") but turned out to be Argentinian/international. That was disappointing. Sitting at a table outside by the street was not a problem and actually nice since there was a fun street comedian performing there. The food, average and expensive. I can't understand why but be aware that... More

We were rapidly passing through Colonia and requested a rapid lunch. Pasta and salads were suggested and we accepted. Service was rapid and lunch was fine. However, it was expensive for what we had.

It comes recommended by the Lonely Planet and by the locals, but to me it was nothing special. I had a mixed salad and a (HUGE) portion of calamari. They were nice, although a bit oily for my taste. Overall, overpriced for what you get. I had dinner and the tables outside were nice.

Extraordinary location with beautiful square and (partial) view of the sea. Food lackluster: mediocre rice with seafood and a salad that could have been a few days less old. Service perfunctory.

Very slow service. Why eat salmon or panga or merluza in a river-side restaurant? And yet, that was all the fish they had. Nothing in the menu called my attention except for the fried calamari and fried sea food, which was good.

We had a lovely family meal here watching the sunset over river Plate. The food was good quality and the service ok. We may have received quicker service due to our early start, approx 6/7pm, but as the plaza filled up it seemed the staff took longer to get to everyone. The setting is lovely so not a bad place...
