Went here on a recommendation and seems like a place the locals go. Great parrillada BBQ. We had the sweetbreads here - wow I wish we could get this quality at home! Friendly service, lovely local feel, warm atmosphere.

This restaurant has the best meat in Colonia. It belongs to the same family and the food is good. I would recommend it.
