Fodor's Expert Review El Mesón de la Plaza [TEMPORARILY CLOSED]

$$$ Colonia del Sacramento Mediterranean

Editor's Note: This property is currently undergoing renovations.

Simple dishes—many steak-based—made with good-quality ingredients have made this traditional restaurant a favorite with porteño visitors to Colonia. The comprehensive wine list showcases Uruguayan vineyards hard to sample anywhere outside the country. Try to get one of the outside tables that sit right on the peaceful Plaza de Armas. Guitar-strumming musicians regularly play for diners, adding to the ambience.
