We visited here today for lunch. During my travels through South America, I've tasted many choripans (chorizo in bread) and this was definitely the worst I have ever tasted. I also love chimichurri sauce but their version of the sauce was pretty pathetic. Such a disappointment. The meals were overpriced and the service was absolutely terrible. The staff were unfriendly and we were pleased when it came time to leave!

When I visited this restaurant I ordered the entrecôte steak on the waiter's recommendation ( as I did not want a huge steak) and it was cooked exactly the way I like it, My husband was also pleased with his steak. The side dish of mash potato was generous and plenty for 2. We ordered a side salad as well but this wasn't necessary as the meal came with enough salad on the plate.

The restaurant said that they take credit cards, reason my friends and I ate there. When it came time to pay the bill they only would take cash. The woman who said they take credit cards, conveniently disappeared. The food was subpar and the service was slow. WHen requesting to talk to the manager they were not of any help.

I don't recommend this place!
The food was ok, but isn't worth the money you pay. And they have some illogical policy about card payment....
Really made us feel like stupid tourists....

A word to the wise: do not eat here if you don't have cash. The hostess told us they took Visa, then when our bill came, they refused our cards.
I got stuck paying for another tourist, who joined us, because he didn't have cash. I barely had enough of their money, which meant I had none left for souvenirs.
Literally, after we told them we wanted to talk to the manager - or the hostess who said we could use a Visa - the server started to ignore us and would walk quickly by our table, not making eye contact.
I was furious and would have just walked away, had I not been worried about being arrested in a foreign country.
Not only that, but the food is just mediocre.
With no money left to shop with, my friend and I caught the ferry back to Buenos Aires 4 hours early. Thanks to this restaurant, we have a very bad taste in our mouth for Colonia Del Sacramento.
