Reasonable

Decent food at slightly high prices for the old town but good service and outdoor seating looking towards the Rio de Plata. Not special but perfectly adequate

The place is wonderful for drinking a beer in the afternoon and they get the other money at a good conversion rate. The food was also good, but a little but expensive and the attention could be better.

The squid was quite good, but the steak with pepper sauce could have been better prepared. Prices are average, so good for a meal that is not a special occasion.

Old Colonia quarter, is a delightful place for a romantic week end. The Pulperia has a guitarist player and a nice set up. Dinner is not great, can be improved. had a Picada with an Espumante, this wan excellent. Sitting outside makes your evening great. Spent two nights at this restaurante. Prices are OK, less than 60 bucks a couple.

The location is really why you would sit outside on the patio to either enjoy a meal/snack or coffee. It is on the main square facing the park, the lighthouse and a bit of the Rio de La Plata. The second reason would be if you didn't have any Uruguay money. They will take US$, ARS, Euro, Reals, AMEX, VISA... More

Had a large beer and the delicious vegetable ravioli here. Nice location and decent service. Good to see various currencies and cards accepted.

We didn't eat here, but the coffee was good and the patio location was great. Service was not so great (as seems to be the case in Argentina as well), but good enough. The restaurant looked like a nice place to have a dinner if you have time.

Very poor calamari (mostly batter), tasteless lemon pie and a large beer for $790, including the mandatory $70pp cover charge that isn't mentioned in English on the menu or used hardly anywhere in SA. So for around £17 a terrible choice of lunch venue. We've had many meals in Argentina and Uruguay that are 10 times better for much less... More

We really enjoyed our meal, the servings are abundant, the waiter spoke english. We came early and service was very good. The salmon and squash was delicious as was the seafood paella, a huge serve. We came for the location and the complete menu, something for everyone.

Stopped in here from a day trip from Buenos Aires. A nice place inside with a good variety on menu. We had house made gnocchi and spaghetti with bolognese sauce. Pretty good. Also convenient that they accepted at least five different currencies and credit cards.
