I was at Colonia for vacation, I spent some days and I went for luch over there:
-Nice waitress and hostess,
-The food is bad, not nice at all
-A snail is faster than their service, try to go with lot of time
-Watch out for bill check, try to pay with credit card instead USD - ARG, exchange rate is very bad
foy you.
-Place is lovely

So, try to avoid them, even when they are friendly, is pricey food for what you get.

Last February a couple of friends and myself visit Colonia, lovely city, warm people beautiful beaches. When the sun went down we decided to drink a couple of beers here. Unfortunately, after that we decided to have dinner there, the meat like a piece of wood, the fries totally greasy...horrible place really bad food

We sat outside and had some beers and fried calamari, as we enjoyed the PERFECT view of the sun setting over the water. We crossed the street a few times to take pictures and the staff did not mind at all. Our drinks and appetizer came to U.S. $35 - not cheap, but for the view, it was worth the price.

While the restaurant has a great location and has a cute second floor seating area, that doesn't make up for inattentive service and sandwiches that were a little on the burnt side. The restaurant was so cold we could see our breath. Two waiters spent 10 minutes setting up a heater, taking away from serving the guests. The tosadas (sandwiches) are enough for two people since its really two full sandwiches.
Also our drinks came after the entree came and we never got the bread and butter.
