Very nice outdoor seating. Fried are very good, as well as pesto pasta, which reminded of German-style.

On a jaunt from Buenos AIres, we chose to stop here as we were not feeling like more tourist walking - we were very tired of impatient tourists. This is South America and the time is different! Having said that, the food was well worth the wait - I had a Caesar salad with a twist - a small bit... More

This is probably the first time I've walked out of a restaurant! We waited for 30 min for our order and asked the waiter . Gave a lame excuse and waited another 30 min. Paid our drinks and walked out! Never again!

The food offered here is bad. For the price you can get proper steaks in Buenos Aires. What was the worst thing was that as we were leaving, the waiters came and told us that we should leave tip. Why would we want to leave tip for expensive and tasteless fast food and for a waiter that couldn't even smile.... More

Unfortunately this place only takes food orders. You are told you can't order drinks after a 20 minutes wait. The waiters aren't tourist friendly and quite rude. After I asked if I could order a glass of wine, and they said they only served bottles. Everyone else had taken their order, but later a second waiter told us we could... More

The restaurant is in the middle of a plaza in Colonia and advertised air conditioning (great idea for a humid day). There was actually no air conditioning, which should have been the first sign of the disappointment to come. Ordered some pumpkin ravioli with a bolognese sauce, which was overly sweet and otherwise had no developed flavors. My husband ordered... More

Pleasant staff and nice situation in the old square. Food very ordinary. The mozzarella cheese was like rubber and the tomatoes tasteless. The chivitos nice enough. We ate outside, but the tables on the cobbles make for an interesting balancing act! They were good with the children who were tired after the journey.

We visited Colonia on a day trip from Montevideo. The town is small and charming, but stopping here for lunch was not the best choice. The service was very slow and the food was not very good. My steak was tough and chewy (in Uruguay!) and my wife's lunch was not memorable. After the lunch, I planned by pay by... More

This looked like such a nice place to have a good lunch. The location was superb, right in the main historic center of Colonia. The food was seriously the worst that I had in eight days in Uruguay. If you like a tough piece of meat combined with indifferent service, then this place is for you. The only reason why... More

Awful service rude customers! Hope you wake up and realize it's your business you are running into the ground and no one else. Food I wouldn't feed to my dogs
