The redeeming feature of this little restaurant is its quaint little dining room, brick walls, nice paintings, only 5 tables. That's what made us choose it - big mistake! We booked a table during the day, and the owner asked us for a 100 peso deposit, which was fine with us. We only had the night in Colonia and this... More

Don't know what the complaints were about the swordfish. I ordered it and then read the reviews while we sampled the wine, so was prepared when my dish came to be disappointed. Mine was wonderful, so go figure. All four of us had a great meal and the ambiance was quite special. Only downside was that they do not take... More

We had a wonderful lunch at this place, served by a very friendly waitress. They have a much more interesting looking menu than other places in Colonia and are less 'touristy'. We enjoyed two different versions of lovely homemade Tortelloni, the wine was good and the dessert okay. Would come back, as it looked also like a very nice place... More

I live not far from Colonia in European winter. So I sometimes go there. I wanted to try this restaurant. So I did. There was not a soul in the restaurant when I showed up at 9pm. The 2 waitresses were sitting at a table outside on the terrace, smoking and nattering. I approached. They kept on chatting. I then... More

My husband and I went to this place following reviews on TA. The ambiance is great, and so is the location. The service and food however were not impressive. Service was extremely slow; we were expecting the food to take long as we had been told that the dishes are cooked when ordered. But besides the foo taking much longer... More

I went to the restaurant with five friends and we were all really impressed with the amazing artwork, stunning decor and great food! The charming resturant owner Jorge made us really welcome and the staff were friendly and the service was amazing. Anyone looking for a little sophistication and a delicious meal can't go past the Art Gallery restaurant. It's... More

The location is right off the main square of old-town Colonia. Atmosphere is fantastic - a house decorated with artwork by Jorge Paez. Perhaps the art may not be for everyone, but the ambiance created by the tasteful furnishings are rather nice in a city filled with restaurants less than excellent at creating ambiance. The courtyard is also a very... More

My friends live close by and we were lucky enough to be introduced to the owner and his staff, and view his Father's works of art that are shown throughout the restaurant, we also dined there a few times. It is certainly a must to visit, especally his strawberries in cognac.

The place is located at the heart of Colonia's Barrio Historico and is an old iberic colonial styled, stone built house. That along with the art pieces and rustic wooden furniture create a great atmosphere for a pleasant meal. I had the sword fish cooked with honey with a siding of condimented onions (about 15 USD) and it was marvelous.... More
