“Old is gold”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Viejo Barrio looks like it's been around for ages, and it looks like they've perfected everything. The service is friendly and professional. The food is excellent - the spaghetti bolognese is truly delicious and tastes like mamma made it. And it's good value. What more can one ask for??

“Characterful!”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

We'd expected to see the hatted waiter however because of his training to represent Uruguay at the 2016 Olympics, he has temporarily at least given up on the hats - don't ask me to explain the logic!
Food and atmosphere lived up to the previous reviews.

“The Waitress Made Our Evening - the Man with the Hats”
Reviewed November 28, 2009

A truly enjoyable ambiance and would love to explore a second time. The waiter was hysterical. He has probably 100 hats and every few minutes he would come to the quaint dining room area wearing a different hat. It become such an amusing experience that all the restaurant guests would wait for the next hat as opposed to their meal. The food was wonderful, the service was impeccable, and more than affordable. It cost us $ 20 USA
