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

We had a server named Alljeandro who was the worst server I've ever encountered and I've been in food and beverage my whole life which as a whole in Argentina and Uruguay is awful as far as service is concerned but this guy set the 0 on the 0-10 scale. I ordered two bottle of water and two of the... More

Unlike some other people here I don't have any bad words to write about this place. However, I can't say anything good either - it was all just average, nothing worth remembering here. Food was tasty but rather pricy which probably makes sense, seeing that it's located so near to the main square. Still, it is what it is. At... More

PLEASE READ THIS! Do NOT go to this place! Chose this place as it had 2 TripAdvisor signs on two doors and thought it had been recommended by them. Old building. Outside tables covered with unbrellas. Inside smallish room with setting for about 20-30 max. Decor - rustic. Airconditioned - not really - very warm. Once seated and looking around... More

We loved the waiters here: one was an immigrant from Mexico who told us how much he loves Uruguay. I have to agree with him! The service was so friendly and the food just fine and the location on the plaza is perfect.

It has an enviable location on a beautiful square in the old town, but the predatory pricing, and worst of all, the dirty, horrible food and the callousness of the manager and staff make it the worst place I've been to in a very long time. I ordered a chicken chop-suey and asked for it to be light on the... More
