Place looks nice, food and service is pretty good but being charged an extra +$200 for cutlery is rude and excessive. Would advise against.

A reasonable choice ( I am not a meat eater but my partner is) the service was good and staff helpful. The music gave a nice ambience to the evening.

The paella is incredible. Not sure why they brought out “free bread” and then charged us for it, but the paella was worth the wait (45min).

First and foremost, it is important to point out that Colonia del Sacramento is not large by any means but does possess quite a few notable dining options. One of the more popular ones right across from the church and about a 20-minute walk from...More

We had lunch here during a daytrip to Colonia from Buenos Aires. The decor is really the biggest drawcard for the restaurant and its eclectic design made us decide to have lunch at El Drugstore. I ordered the Chivito Sandwich and my wife ordered a...More
