“characteristic building turns out to have the worst food and attitude.”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

New in town, we fell for the old building and nice parasols to eat. Red wine tasted like acid; staff told me this is normal. Pizza (4x the price of a delicious chorizo sausage from the grill elsewhere) tasted like frozen supermarket food, bad tasting base, no herbs, no taste at all and it felt respectless how this restaurant treated food and opportunities. Staff was not involved at all. So instead of making something beautiful out of this treasure (building), it was a shame how food and tourists were approached. After so many wonderful restaurant experiences in Buenos Aires, it felt almost hostile. Not a warm and inspired welcome in Colonia del Sacramento. Fortunately, we found great places in Colonia later on.

“Like the place not the food”
Reviewed 27 February 2013

The service was pretty bad and the place was not too clean either. None of the recommeded restaurants were open for dinner since it was too early. I would go there for a coffee or a snack not for lunch or dinner.

“excellent kabob”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

This didn't look like much, but it had a great kabob. Sat and watched people walk by. Decent prices for quality and size.

“A fair option if you are hungry”
Reviewed 24 September 2012 via mobile

The chivito was good, although not excellent. The meat was a little tough and the fries soaked with oil. Waiting time was pretty long for a sandwich, but in the local average...
