Came here with my family, I LOVED the esthetic of the place, the food was excellent and abundant, and the service was great 3 different waiters came around many time to see how we were doing. The music (live and otherwise) was also incredible!

I was visiting Colonia with my wife and 27 years daughter. We had lunch at El Drugstore and enjoyed tapas and a cool beer. The personnel was very friendly and the food very tasty. We even had a table in the sun.

Passed this restaurant while I was visiting Colonia del Sacramento but didn't go in to have a meal. Thought that the dining cars were quite "eyecatching". However the cars themselves look quite old. The question of sanitation and hygiene would indeed arise
