Paella was great

Great location, outdoor tables, quick service. If lucky: very good 3 guitar musicians. Terrible bathroom. Weird ambiance inside. Best paella from a restaurant i had in years.

The waiter from Mexico was very helpful and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed spending a couple of hours sitting out in the lovely square with some excellent wine.

I ran in here when there was a storm and felt entirely at home. The waiters were sweethearts. I just had some wine and desert so I can't speak to the food, but the staff were lovely and called me a cab without having to ask!

What seemed like a good restaurant actually left us with a great sensation of disjoy. Being the only guests, we had to wait for 20 minutes to order food until we grew tired of it and called the waiter. I ordered an intricate, which came with mushroom sauce and fries. The meat was a minimal portion and I didn't get... More

Don't wast your precious time at Colonia. Just the place don't justify stay there. And don't justify even the 100 words.

The food was horrible - cold chips, uncooked egg and chewy meat. The prices are massively inflated for what you get. Was the worst meal we had in South America AND the most expensive. Terrible. They must know they are terrible because they add the tip onto the bill as well as the table charge. Avoid this place.

My husband ordered an entrecot, but first it was totally raw; afterwrds it came back incredibly over cooked!!! Ah, our first 2 choices weren't available any longer, so as the wine we asked for. I DO NOT recommend... More

This restaurant was recommended by our tour guide in our day trip from Montevideo. Colonia is a very nice city and I believe one can find a decent place to eat. We decided to follow the group and eat there and, for our disappointment, the food and service was terrible. I ordered chicken and my partner ordered fish. My dish... More
