I ordered the salad of the house and cannelloni al caruso (sort of white sauce). The salad wasn't something great, but eatable. The cannoli were sort of pancake filled with green herbs in a thick not very tasty white sauce. The red wine was ok. I paid 846 for it. For half the price you can have a better dish... More

We ordered a dish for two and some beer. Waited a very long time for the food to come out. It was a thin piece of meat wrapping some ham and cheese, then battered and deep fried. The meat was way too tough.... the portion was huge but quality lacked.

We went to this restaurant with our children (10 and 13), and were intrigued by the "hole-in-the-wall" appeance from the exterior. Unfortunately, this did not conceal a hidden gem: the food was very poor, and the service was dreadful. My spouse and I ordered two beers (one each) in our basic Spanish, and we received 3 beers. When we attempted... More

The place has a very cool ambient. The waitress makes you feel at home. The food is simple but delicious and a very good price.

We are here twice on our visit to Colonia, and enjoyed the food both times. The service was a little slow however, so steer clear of here if you're in a hurry. The pasta was particularly good; and the vege soup quite average (wouldn't order it again if we had a time machine...). The postre menu is fantastic, definitely save... More

The food was alright. I got a little hamburger with a soy steak. The problem was that my waitress told me there was a 18 % discount for paying with a foreign credit card, but after having paid with my MasterCard it didn't show on my receipt. I showed it to another worker behind the counter who explained to me... More

We shared an enormous chivito al plato and had a pint of beer each. Not what you would call a fine dining experience but quite tasty overall and at a reasonable price for Colonia, where nothing is cheap, The wait staff were very good, light years better than the sullen louts we are sadly becoming accustomed to in Buenos Aires.

It was very quiet the night I went, but was highly recommended by my hotel. (To be fair I also ate pretty early by Uruguayan standards). I had a ravioli dish that was very good. The folks at the restaurant were very nice.

We were very pleasantly surprised by Palacio. The prices are very good, particularly for a touristy place like Colonia -- we spent 800 UY pesos (US$40) including tip for the two of us and we walked away stuffed. There's a wealth of choices, from pizza to burgers/chivitas to salads to fish to casseroles, and there are even some good vegetarian... More
