What a scam. Barely mediocre food at a premium price. The food is horrible and the service bad. We've should have looked it up at TripAdvisor, but, hey, we forgot. Lesson learned. Next time we'll check.

The one time we didn’t check Trip Advisor for reviews....awful, awful everything....bad service service....food below mediocre.....asked for medium rare...was served well done....sent it back and served almost well done....the food was tasteless and rediculously overpriced. DO NOT EAT THERE....you’d be wasting your time and money.

Unfortunately we didn't read the TripAdvisor entries before. We can only confirm the bad experience with food and service. Fish and vegetables from the Parrilla were terrible. After discussion with the boss in spanish (Esta comida esta un fraude ), we didn't have to pay...More

Great location, service good (must have been a good day biased on other reviews), food ok but slightly overpriced for what you get. Was walking past and other places were closed so options were limited on the day.

Inedible meal in the lovely town of Colonia. Not cheap and surprised to be charged full amount plus tip and cover charge as we sent the food back. Stay away from this place. What a waste of ingredients and a waste of money.

So disappointed that we wasted an evening at this place. Typical tourist trap that doesn't care about the quality of their food one bit. Everything from dry bread to snack on, to not knowing the origin of the sea food, super dry local fish, soggy...More

This is a cute little bistro right in the center of Colonia, but that is as far as the attraction goes. It was a slow, weeknight in the village. We stopped at this attractive restaurant. My first question was concerning credit cards. I was low...More

This is a tourist trap. Don't let the cosy lighting fool you, it's the only positive side with this place. Service here is really bad, and the food is way below average. Do yourself a favor and visit one of the many better places in...More
