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.

This was our first evening in Uruguay,, and with a colourful place like this, things get relaxed. The setting is special, the food is OK, almost really good, so we would easily recommend it ahead many of the more fancier places along the cobbled street

We took a day trip to Colonia and decided on this quirky restaurant for lunch. Sat outside in the shade at a wobbly table on the cobblestones and couldn't have been happier. A jug of Sangria and a couple of beers easily washed down the...More
