We stopped at El Buen Suspiro on a very hot day and found a shadowy spot in the patio, which was nice and welcoming. We had a picada with ham, bacon, salami, and cheese. It was great to try the local products. The wine choice is also very good, we were advised a km. 0 white one, which we really... More

I loved the experience to eat local meats, wine and cheese. The owner was really nice to explain the different types of Tannat wine and it really was the best meal in our entire trip. Their bell pepper jelly was ramazing.

We spend one day in Colonia del Sacramento and eating at Buen Suspiro was definitely the highlight of the day. Food and wine were good and staff friendly. The best thing was nevertheless the romantic and relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommended place!

Best little cute wine and cheese restaurant. Very quaint and adorable dollhouse looking restaurant on the inside. Delicious local wines at great prices with unique cheese/meat/appetizer menus. This place is more for relaxing and small dinner meal as they only have appetizers, two soups, one salad and one entree. The onion soup is the best I've ever had and must... More

Cute place. Had good wine and pumpkin soup. Expensive. Bread, complimentary cheese didn't impress. For a party of four we had one bottle of wine, two soups, two lasagnas, three waters. $80 US. Bread was just short of awful, nothing like a good rustic bread. Cheese I saw and ate was warm, sweating, soft, and bland. It was not air... More

The food is good. if you know what a real picada is, you'll find out that it's not the regular type of picada, but some kind of "author" version, The wines are great, and the service is also very good, but... Don't go with kinds, there are no kid menu or any meal option for them. And as the place... More
