tripadvisor indicated us this place nearly as the top address in Colonia to eat fish... believe me, it revealed to be something completely different for us! I booked and the reservation was taken by the friendly owner Carlos and when we arrived, I have to admit that the best table of the restaurant was waiting for us. We ordered some... More

We discovered this amazing place completely by happy accident during a recent weeklong stay in Colonia. While out walking in the Barrio Historico, we were invited into a home of some USA expats liviing there. We told them how boring we found the food to be in Uruguay in general, and they instantly booked us for lunch the following day... More

We went for lunch and we had an amazing time. The owner, Ana is very entertaining and helpful. We had two starters, two mains, two desserts, coffee and we really enjoyed the food even if the mussels had a cider sauce with an unusual taste, nice though. We choose the langoustines dishes but I believe they were more scamps than... More

We came here for lunch, attracted by the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The restaurant is run by a friendly couple of Argentineans who opened the restaurant 30 years ago. Carlos, the chef, will pop out to meet you and ask how the food is, while his wife takes the orders. They have their specialities and we... More

Don't miss this restaurant, open only at noon, certain days. Owners accommodating, entertaining and friendly. Gourmet eating at an excellent price. Salmon with leek sauce is our favorite. Great coffee, desserts gourmet. Retro atmosphere is not to be missed.

The writing of this review has been on my "to-do" list for two plus years. My wife and I visited Buenos Aires in May 2013. We took a day trip by ferry to Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay. While walking around we discovered this very enchanting and inviting restaurant. We arrived approximately 45 minutes prior to the restaurant opening, met the... More

I enjoyed the atmosphere, the fiod, and service...the only down side...and it was not the fault of the restaurant... is that they do not take credit cards and it is on the menu. The bill came to USD$89.00 and we had between us...$89 - our last US currency...we thought it was funny but if we'd only had 88 not sure... More

This place is excellent to have a relax and delicious dinner. My husband and I went in dicember. We ordered foie grass as appetizer and lamb and black ravioli as entree. I really recommend this restaurant. The chef Bidanchon rocks!

The restaurant decor is very unique! It's a museum itself, I am sure it was converted from the owners' house. The menu was not big, but very exquisite! Must get the squid rings, the lamp rack, and the ravioli!!!!!! The tea I ordered was served in beautiful tea sets!! The owners were super nice and welcoming! They spoke good English... More
