This quirky restaurant was the most memorable part of our day visit to Colonia. Had a quiet and relaxing lunch in the lovely back yard overlooking the river, surrounded by trees and blossoms. The food was tasty and the atmosphere very informal - it almost felt like visiting a friend's house, including the delightful house cats.

I enjoyed so much having coffee and desert here that next day I came back for more. It is mostly a coffee/tea house bsolutely delicious home made desserts, great service and beautiful environment with a garden facing the river.

I'd read a lot about this place and absolutely wanted to visit it; unfortunately, it was closed when I went to Colonia this July but I went there last year (August 2013) with friends and everyone loved it. Went for the hot chocolate with vanilla and a desert (the pear tart is lovely and the lemon-chocolate one, to die for).... More

Thanks for tripadvisor and all the good review about this place. I'm so happy I went this afternoon. stylish retro furnitures with nice music with perfect low volume. The best feature is view and sun light from window. Of course food was very very tasty. Sopa was amazing it came with nice bread which is hard to find nice bread... More

Lentas Maravillas was the highlight of our day in Colonia. After taking the ferry over from Buenos Aires, and running around from museum to museum, it was a pleasure to relax in Lentas' beautiful garden (featuring a view of the harbor) with tea and tasty pastries. The ladies who run the place are gracious and helpful. We highly recommend this... More

This was a great spot to grab a bite to eat. The views from the garden looking out to the river is stunning... You can get a better spot than this to watch the sun set. The service though was painfully slow and unresponsive. Maybe we were unlucky.... Maybe not. The price you have to pay is pretty expensive but... More

I have read the TA reviews and I went there with big expectations. I'm happy I wasn't disappointed! The place really deserves all the compliments: the staff is nice and kind, the patio is cute and the food is superb. Actually I was surprised to see how little the restaurant is. Only few tables inside and a little number more... More

So love this spot by the river. Superb food and great service. The cakes are just fantastic and the staff are really wonderful. Would come back to Colonia just for the 'slow miracles' produced in the kitchen. Just a reminder that it doesn't open till 14:00h.

This is a gorgeous cafe with a lovely garden and warm friendly interior. The staff were very friendly and you feel like you are relaxing in their home. The big downside though are the prices. I was quite shocked when I compared afterwards what we had paid for sandwiches and wine. It was more than the dinner we had that... More
