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

We picked this place randomly. The interior is beautiful and old style. We ordered pasta and wine, and it was okay, but nothing special. It was a Saturday night so the place was quite crowded with families, and the service staff seemed to be very busy. Also, the roof was leaking (It was a rainy day), so some of the... More

Our tour company arranged our lunch here. Are there lots of tourists? Yes. But, the good folks who live in Colonia probably don't regularly frequent white table cloth restaurants - the town now largely subsists on tourism. The interior is beautiful and there was a live guitar player providing music. We both had beef dishes and Uruguayan red wine in... More

Friendly service, they replaced a steak that was over done. The decor is lovely, has 3 nice areas. Menu is not expansive with cuts of meat available, but both the Spanish style and regular grilled tenderloin were delicious, even though all were slightly over cooked to what was requested

The restaurant was recommended, but disappointing. We both had the salmon. Both came luke warm and my wife's was very thin, it seemed the end of the end. Staff was rude when we complained. A pity, as the place has a very nice decoration and a good atmosphere. Try to find another place for your meal. There are plenty other... More

Beautiful, beautiful restaurant. Menu is full of delicious options for a fair price. You can choose your table from three ambiences: to the right a more Spanish style room, Portuguese to the left, and a open space in the back.

This restaurant looks more expensive than it is. It is located in an old house with two big rooms which have a quaint decoration comprised of antiques. It offers live music with a good singer/guitar player (we ended up buying one of his CDs). The service and food are good and the portions are just the right size, so you... More

We had an enjoyable lunch in the conservatory. Both the steak and fish dishes were generous and delicious. Service was a bit relaxed though they were busy. We're on holiday so didn't mind it being slow. Lots of local tourists.
