I have been there once and I still remember the wonderful taste of the fish I ordered. It was during a weekday and was calm and peaceful. It is well decorated and I really recommend this restaurant

“Horrible experience - Shame on you Fodors”
Reviewed 20 January 2010

After spending a lovely day in Colonia, the couple we were with pulled out a Fodor's guide and found that Lobo was listed as a recommended restaurant. Apparently, there's a famous chef there. There was also live music, which sounded promising as well as a 10% discount coupon we were handed upon entering. We were escorted to the upstairs terrace, which has a lovely view. However, that's where the magic ended.

Our group is not a super-picky one. Normally, there's no problem waiting a little here and there and after traveling extensively, we know not to expect NY levels of service everywhere. However, LOBO's service was disgraceful. It took over 45 minutes to order our food even after we had told them we were in a rush and had to catch a ferry back to Buenos Aires. The biggest problem was that only 3 of us were brought our food after waiting another 45 minutes and my husband's food NEVER came despite us requesting it several times. Of the dishes we had, 2 were awful (assorted cheese and meat plate was literally chunks of swiss and sausage) and one fish dish was quite tasty. After finally telling them that we didn't have time to wait any longer and to cancel my husband's order and bring the check, no check arrived. We waited 20 minutes and literally had to go downstairs and request a check while we waited. My husband's meal that never came was on the bill and there was no discount as was promised at the door. We were also charged a fee for the music (which was nothing special) upstairs and were never notified there was a charge. It was altogether one of the most offensive and frustrating dining experiences ever. And judging by the fact that we heard every table of diners around us complaining about the service and wait, it was offensive and frustrating for others as well.
