This is an amazing restaurant with nice view and FANTASTIC food. I had a soup and a main course (Aug is winter there), and it was the best food ever. I highly recommend going to this place if you happen to be in Colonia.

Excellent location and service, nice chillout music and good food. Yes it is expensive, but for what you get (beyond food) and given prices in other restaurants, it is worth a visit.
