We went here after reading other reviews. The restaurant opens at 8 (at least on fridays). The entrecote steak was awesome. That, plus my wife's stuffed pasta (also very good), provoletta (grilled provolone appetizer) and a half bottle of wine came to US $35 - can't beat it!

We ate there one evening in September of 2011 and enjoyed the experience very much. The servers were courteous and the food good. We sat at a table with a good view of the parrilla and were able to enjoy seeing all the various meats being grilled there. Good central location very close the to Historic district. We would go back again.

If you have the opportunity to stop in, get a seat on the porch and try the Tannat. Good service !

This place is excellent for Colonia standards of food. Go here if you'd like a good steak meal. It's not the highest end parillada, but they do make the food very well and you won't find much better in Colonia.
