“Best Parrilla in CDS.”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

A slight wait for a table. Seemed popular with the locals. The prices seemed fair and there was a great wine list. Service was friendly and warm. Beef was prepared to Jugoso (medium rare) and they got it right. Tasty sides as well.

“Great meal”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

For "Parrilladas' Lovers", it's a great place, great beef. Ask for a well cook "molleja" for starter and a "bife de lomo" for main. The "flan de dulce de leche" was awesome too.

“Good local food”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We wanted to try a chivito, a sandwich Colonia is known for. It's basically steak, mozzarella cheese, a fried egg, tomato, and lettuce. This particular one was not served on bread. It was good, but I wouldn't say it was amazing.
