Place is well located and a bit cheaper than in the old city. We took a paella for 2, price was ok and tasted good. Nothing really special about this place, we had a good lunch.

Ànjo Preto is well located in the main Plaza de Armas in the heart of the old colonial city of Colonia and just under magnificent trees. Inside, the decor is beautiful, modern by the vivid colors and full of local tradition by the frames, statues, artefacts etc The food doesn't match the place.

Location was great on the quiet square in the shades, and service was ok (but certainly not above average). Low point was the food. Dry and tasteless, worth... More

The food was okay, I had some fish sandwich which I realized was some lox or cured fish with some sort of spread on bread with some fries. I had to get a large beer because it was so hot in Colonia. I would rather eat on the main street outside of the old town because the prices are more... More

Went to several places in town, with my fiancé. Some are good, some are not. But this one deserves some attention. =]

The place is nice, but food is terrible! I had a spaghetti that was very badly cooked! In my table of 5, the only plate was ok was the raviolones negros. Don't go, in the expensive!

My mom and I shared a very tasty milanesa napolitana with smashed potatoes ( the latter wasn't very good ). But the place is nice and the service is great!

The customer service was great, the place itself is ok with beautiful artwork, however the food was way too expensive for what it was.
