“Just horrible !!!”
Review of Rio de la plata

Rio de la plata
Cuisines: Afghani
Restaurant details

For once, we didn't check the notes before going to eat. What a mistake ! Prices not being at all in line with the other restaurants, the wobbly service, the fish served FROZEN. Yes, I mean FROZEN. Three trays of two people frozen. And we dare to say that it was the fish of the day that was caught that morning. The manager sitting a little further doesn't even apologize or say a word to us. She stays far and haughty. We ask for a reduction on the bill because it is unthinkable to serve frozen fish of the day to customers, she refuses with her servers and once again refuses to come and see us. Finally we pay very much for dishes that we didn't even eat half.

Stay away from this restaurant. The name on outside was “Rio del Plata” while receipt had Sacramento Del Plata. Food was terrible and not worth the money. When we went in to use bathroom we saw the dirty condition of the restaurant and several dogs wandering around. Guy standing on outside of restaurant was talking to people walking by and commenting on how good food was.

You cannot pay with credit card so you do not get the tax deduction of approximately 20%. Instead of this they charge an overpriced service and cover price. Not to mention that food is lousy, too.

Walking around in Colonia and looking for a restaurant is not in easy task. Many of them are good looking in nice locations and in the menus they offer very similar food. So we chose this one. The service was good, the tables are little to small for 4 persons. The food was without particular taste, we took gambas al ajillo prepared in boiled water with some garlic (we are used on olive oil...) and chivito missing some ingredients from a classic recipe.
At the end a classic problem with connectivity when paying with credit card.
If you are walking around in Colonia and looking for a dinner it is better to avoid this spot.

Service was nothing more than horrible.
Ordered the best cut of meat. Received a mediocre cut of beef. Ordered medium rare, received overcooked meat. More like well done meat. Though there were only two other tables with customers, it took over 30 min to get our food. The mashed potatoes were at best warm.
Complained and was told that the issues should have been addressed before eating.
Attempted to pay with credit card and was told that the system was down.
Paid over $100 for bad steaks.
Should have researched TripAdvisor before hand.
