Friendly staff and beautiful outdoor seating. Food was delicious, particularly the fish with herbs that my partner had. I had lemon prawn curry, which I wouldn't have ordered if I'd known there was alcohol in it. The restaurant also had high chairs for babies. Prices...More

Had the “gnocchi with vegetables and cheese sauce” but it tasted like gnocchi topped by over cooked stir fry with mushroom gravy. Very strange. Left most of it. Friend Ordered hamburger patty and mashed pumpkin side. Hamburger very over cooked and mashed pumpkin was cold.

I went here on the suggestion of my innkeeper because I wanted seafood. I haven’t seen the waitress for a half an hour--not near me, at any rate. I wanted another beer, but I’ve finished eating. So no beer. They have a loudspeaker outside playing...More

We went here for some tapas between early lunch and late dinner. Huge portions, tasty food. Quite reasonably priced. Interesting and uniquely decorated place. Would have had no trouble trying a full dinner here. Very friendly and funny waitress, who gave us speedy service.

The food is good but it is the atmosphere and setting which makes it. The city is a mix of Portuguese, Spanish and Uruguay and the food served here encapsulates all of it.

We spent a day wandering the streets of old Colonia and stopped at El Drugstore for a late lunch. We were drawn to the outside eating area and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Provided there is space, we would definitely recommend...More
