great value

after being disappointed with the crazy prices and awful service on the river-front, we went here for dinner and weren´t expecting much. we only had 45minutes to eat before our bus and the waiter was very efficient, we got burgers and they were very filling and we were able to get our bus on time.

tried the chivito and parrilla platter for 1. both tasted good and the price was reasonable. the only problem I had was service was really slow. it took them 30 mins to cook my chivito! all they have to do is to throw a small piece of steak in the grill for a minute or two and stack it up... More

Loads of people were sat in this place, so we thought we would try it. I can only think that everyone else had thought the same. Shockingly poor service, all took forever and food was really bad. Give this one a pass folks.

I can't review the food. I was going to eat I started reading Tripadvisor but had aleady ordered a beer. But I can vouch for the negative comments about the service. No one came and asked me if I wanted to eat. I asked for the bill for my beer 30 minutes ago and ............ the bill just arrived :-)... More

Avoid this place like the plague. All will appear well and there is an English menu, but you will be sorry if you eat here. Bottom line is there is no chef, rather a line cook who simply throws your meat into the flame. I ordered Picanha well done. The first time the meat came it charred on the outside... More

We ate here after getting off the ferry from Buenos Aires and being very hungry. Our hotel recommended it to try the typical Uruguay style meat sandwich. First, we had to wait a long time before someone came to take our order. Second, we ordered one sandwich to share, but they brought us two and charged us for both which... More

This place looks nice and cheap, but is not. In fact, as soon as you look on the menu you realized that every promotion on display is not there and all items are 50% more expensive. I tried the hamburger promo and it was a hoax. The waiter gave a very unreasonable explanation. Don't trust the deceiving looks of this... More

A street café toward the end of the main tree-lined road running into the histroric district. The quality of the food is pretty good and not at all expensive. It can't charge as much as those places that are actually inside the old city.

This is a busy place right in the middle of town. Service was very good. They really had some good looking cakes. but we were too full!

I stopped there with my wife & her daughter during a Day Tour of Colonia on November 9th. I should have looked at the reviews here before entering Mercosur Restaurant. Here's a summary of our nightmare. I took the fish with mash (extra cost for that) and decided to get a few slices of tomatoes on the side ....... bad... More
