We visited for dinner, the paella was small overpriced and without flavour, the meat (vacio) was over cooked and tough, the chicken was ok. We asked before ordering to confirm that credit cards were accepted, but when we wanted to pay we got the “credit...More

Our experience did not match that of many reviewers. We went early to eat, were the only people there and the waiter was charming. The Bogu river fish was cooked to perfection and huge - easily enough for 2. I don't mind dealing with the...More

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.

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.
