We sat down in a gorgeous table overlooking the small bay with the barbeque burning behind us. The main plus for this restaurant is definitely the views and the intimate setting (it basically feels like you're in the owner's garden but it feels perfect. I think you want to try and be at the "end of the garden" away from the inside part of the restaurant as it was definitely the most romantic)
On to the food, it was good but not quite fantastic. I had a steak off the barbeque which was delicious and my partner had the asado de tira (short ribs) which was ok. You certainly won't be disappointed with the food but you're really there for the location.

We had read about El Rincon and found the outside dining spot to be beautiful, overlooking the water in Colonia. Surrounded by trees, but with a clear view, the food was excellent and meat cooked on the open barbecue in among the tables. Brazilian music wafted in the background.

Sandro, our chef, prepared everything perfectly. Steak was great,and the raviolis were unexpectedly good. (Chicken, my first choice, was unavailable, probably due to demand) It's a perfect spot for a meal before watching the sunset on the Rio Plata.

We found this charming little restaurant by accident at the end of the street heading west from the main square. Basically a "parrillada" - barbeque restaurant - the range of "cocina" (kitchen) dishes is limited. The menu is simple and reasonably priced. The staff were willing and attentive and service was quick. Guillermo - the parrillero - is great!! Cooks meat perfectly, and has his little herb garden right in front of you.
The setting is outside (inside space is very limited) in a lovely garden with north views over the river. Very photogenic, especially at night.
