A menu with many options

We went for dinner and were surprised with a menu full of alternatives. Either a heavy food (meat, barbecue, etc), or something fast (pizza, sandwich, etc) are available. Prices are reasonable, and the waitress was very helpful. Will surely return.

We always go to this restaurant at least once when we visit Colonia. When lots of restaurants don't open until 8pm in Colonia (and Uruguay-wide) Mercosur is open all the way through from lunch onwards. This is great if you are a family and want an earlier dinner. There is a kids play area at the back of the restaurant,... More

This restaurant is ok. Their grilled vegatables were great though. Stake was not bad either. Slighly more expensive then Buenos Aires. Even after the deducted the tax (something like 12%). This happens automaticly when you when you pay with a non Urguyan credit card!

I went in here because I was about to leave Uruguay without having a famous Paradilla and there were a few people already eating there (though the restaurant was largely empty inside.) I asked for a table for one (in Spanish) and the guy just looked at me, it's definitely a just sit down place, but he was rude. When... More

Busy place with many people under a canopy that took up the sidewalk. You have to walk by on the street to get by. Many dogs were lying around unperturbed. Had a snack of patates - large portion as were the many platters I saw around me - various parillas, burgers, chivitas and salads. Good service. Everyone was having fun... More

Nice restaurant, reasonably priced. On the main street (General Flores). Lots of seating outside. Order the chivito platter for 2. It is plenty of food. This along with beer for 2 costs about $30.00. This restaurant accepts VISA, but NOT American Express, Uruguayan pesos, Argentine pesos ans U.S. dollars. You are best off paying with US dollars if you can.... More

Located on the main street of Colonia. Great food, specializes in meat dishes. Very friendly and correct service. Big plates (donot order too much), nice drinks, fair prices. What did strike us were the very good looking street dogs that like to lie down at your table to take a nap, and are not bothered by the restaurant. We love... More
