“Seems like a house”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

It was a perfect lunch in a beautiful place, we shared mussels and a beef really delicious, even the better uruguayan wine that we ever tried. Service is as good as food. We surely will come back next time in Colonia.

“Charming restaurant in an old home”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

This restaurant was recommended by friends in Montevideo for good reason. It was expensive but excellent. The husband-wife team take great pride in their food, service and presentations offering wonderful flavors thoughtfully blended on beautiful plates. I had the lamb with a perfect wine accompaniment.

“The perfect place for lunch!”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

We loves this place! What an experience! The are located just besides the Porton del Campo. The food is amazing (they have options for vegetarians) and the service... outstanding! Like most of the places in Colonia, they don't accept credit cards! We didn't know that and we didn't have all the cash needed to pay the bill (what a shame!!). Thw owner was super sweet and told us to come back the next day with the cash! Of course, we did it! The atmosphere is nice and the desserts were very tasty! Try their Pomelo Licquor! I'll definetly go back!

PS: they are open only for lunch!

“good quality but very expensive”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

This restaurant offers very good food, with fresh ingredients. My lamb was excellent and the started (smoked salmon) was delicious, but my husband was slightly disappointed with the fish with shrimps and sauce course. The restaurant has character, with many personal trinkets. We paid for two people (one starter, two main courses, a desert, a glass of wine, water and a coffee) more than 100 dollars.

“Truly wonderful!”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

This was one of my favorite dining experiences anywhere. Simple, delicious food, great atmosphere and the owners are fabulous. They know how to offer great service without getting in the way, and very clearly wonderful people. I'm celiac (gluten free) and they had no problem accommodating. Definitely recommended!
