Very cool place to go for a cold drink, a sweet or just a chill. A lovely backyard on the river or air conditioning inside make it an ideal place to escape the heat. We came here twice during our visit and both times the...More

We visited Colonia del Sacramento when temperatures were nearly 100 degrees. Lentas Maravillas was a cool, comfortable spot with a beautiful view of the garden and the water beyond. We opted to stay indoors in the air conditioning and enjoyed fabulous, refreshing orange sherbet drinks...More

Lentas Maravillas isn't exactly a restaurant, it's a coffee shop/tea-room that also serves lunch and occasional private dinners. We are a small venue that sits up to 14 people in our living room and up to 16 people in the garden. We like being small because we can provide better service to our clients. We specialise in gourmet sandwiches and salads in Summer. In winter, in addition to our sandwiches, we make a spicy goulash and a chicken curry...There's also a hot, fiery soup to welcome our clients as they wait for their food to arrive...Desserts are home-made and some of the cakes are a revised version of my mother's Austro-Hungarian recipes.
