I recently visited Colonia on a few occasions - there is a great variation in what is offered, priced and what is delivered. This restaurant gives you everything you might ever need - seriously good food, brilliant service, English if you need it, wonderful old historical building, nice table cloths etc. Proper restaurant at a ridiculous low price vs the...

The Mesón features a very attractive colonial setting and decor. We visited as a family of five in July (winter) and had a very tranquil, quiet room to enjoy for our lunch. The service was attentive. The bife was very good, as were the raviolis. My 10-year old son loved the milanesa --and said it was the best he had... More

We were attracted to this lovely looking restuarant when searching for a dinner place by looking in the windows. The rooms looked lovely. When we arrived there was only us and one other couple and the echo of footsteps on the stone floors. The place is charming however that did not equal the food. Three of us ordered the goulash...

We had lunch here and really liked this restaurant. There was live music, the food service was great and the food was very good and healthy. We were looking for a break from the typical heavy meat Argentinian diet.

Very pleasant colonial type atmosphere - very pretty. The service was a little slow but then we were not in a hurry. The food was good without being exceptional and the wine list more than adequate. One of the few restaurants in town which looks enticing

Due to heavy downpours we had a couple of hours to kill before exploring the city and we choose this restaurant for an early lunch. The food was different and very good and they also had live music. Service was also good. Would definitely eat here again

A group of us had lunch here. The salad was heavily sauced, the ravioli was the surprise hit: homemade-tasting and with a substantial sauce. The fish was an unusual cut but was presented with a savory caper sauce. The desert was an unusually textured custard with wafer cookies and fruit. To be honest, there was another small restaurant near the... More

Meson is in a nice spot in Old Colonia and offers live music, which was quite nice. The food and drink were quite undistinguished. The chicken specialty of the house had no seasoning that I could detect. Our wine was bottled perhaps a few weeks prior. It took us a long time to get served and even longer to get... More
