Live music! Go there and enjoy a nice wine or local beers. Menu has several options, I recommend the ravioli!

Attractive restaurant with nice employees. Food was good but not superb. They had live music the night we were there. They need to get some more waiters as there were only two to serve many tables!

Have been here several times for both lunch and dinner. Generally a good option and a safe bet when in Colonia. Some places in the old town are hit or miss but this place is consistent and good.

Not a high standard of restaurants in this areas. This one seems to be one of the best. I had fish and it was ok. You can't find fresh fish anywhere. Try to get a table in the patio, garden inside the restaurant
