Of all the restaurants in pretty Colonia you would be unlucky to pick this one. The prices are very high, and to add insult to injury, they give a lousy exchange rate if you want to pay in Argentine pesos. I had tomato soup and a bottle of mineral water and was charged USD30. The soup was tepid and I... More

I went with my wife for a romantic lunch because of the vintage looks and the prospect of nice and sophisticated food.

Description
It's on a corner by the old lighthouse in the Barrio Historio district, the old town. They played music and showed slides bounced of the wall of an adjacent building, they are about 6 young people, I think the chef is from Brazil, they also have woks outside on the terrace for cooking and oranges growing right above you, not quite ready in March 2012. It was not the cheapest place around, cost for two was about US$75, but the ambiance and food was excellent, we listened to and watched Pavrotti!
