In the heart of historical Center of Colonia, this is a mix of restaurant and art gallery. The enviromment is perfect and the music is cool. Staff excellent. Raviolli with salmon and shrimp ... I suggest. Its no cheaper restaurant.

A lot of the same in the gallery collection. But entire town of 8 square blocks has the same Inventory. I am not sure why UNESCO named it a historical city or why 10,000 Places to See Before You Die listed it. Go on to Montevideo. Don't stop.

We were looking for dinner on an awful rainy winter night in Colonia; this place looked cozy and dry so we went in. The place serves as a gallery for paintings of the late artist Jorge Paez Vilaro, brother of the also late artist Carlos Paez Vilaro. Jorge’s son runs this restaurant and he was overseeing the service on the... More

Lovely environment to sit back and soak up an evening in Colonia. No A/C and the food is good (but not great). Lovely, friendly service. The artwork, antiques and music make it!

Hard to believe this was the same restaurant with which we fell in love four years ago. Same ownership, so no excuse there. This time the service was quite staggeringly poor. We had the worst waitress we've ever had the misery to encounter anywhere in the world. The main course order was incorrect and had to be redone. The fillet... More

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant for dinner this September. We were drawn to it after reading that it offers an intimate, artistic, cozy environment in an old colonial house that belonged to an artist. We also read that the artist's son was in charge of it and somebody wrote that he offered a nice tour of... More

Reading some of the reviews for this place I wonder if I was indeed there! Service was bad and food was absolutely normal, I could even say that it needed to be "spiced up"! We had a nice Tanat wine and the decoration was lovely, especially some of the paintings though not much by Carlos Paez Vilaro. Something worth mentioning... More

You will find a lot of similar things with Gaudi on this house. The place is really well maintaned, the view is spectacular. Go there and enjoy good art in a wild place.

After an ordinary experience at the large restaurant on the main Plaza - too busy, not enough staff and food wasn't bad but just ordinary - we picked up that place for its caractere and its location. The waitress was great and most importantly the food was delicious. Great care was taken for presentation and it tasted good - see... More
