The history of Colono

The project was launched by Francisco Carmona in 2018. Francisco had moved to Vienna in 2012 with the clear idea of founding the best Spanish restaurant in the city. He first set up Lola in district 1 and then perfected his restaurant model with the Hans in Leopoldstadt. Over the years he realized that another Spanish concept was still missing in the city and together with other partners he founded Colono Gourmet Shop & Tapas Bar, an innovative concept that combines the retail and restaurant sector with the aim of providing the best experience around the Spanish delicatessen. You can learn more about our concept by watching the video recorded by the Austrian TV channel ORF at our place.

In 2020 we launched the online channel through colonogourmet.com (where you are right now) to allow people outside Vienna to also buy our Spanish specialties online and receive them comfortably at home.


At Colono we believe it is vitally important to offer the best ingredients, and to this end we work with family businesses that produce artisanal products of the highest quality, thanks to the knowledge acquired over several generations. We work with more than 30 producers directly and we are always exploring new partnerships. We are fortunate to work with Espinaler, Conservas Nardín, Embutidos Morato, Quesos Valle de los Molinos, Arturo Sánchez, El Paeller, La Chinata, Belloterra, Pablo Garrigós, Conservas Rosara, Conservas La Góndola, Bodegas Ostatu, Aceites García de la Cruz or Bodegas Cillar de Silos among many others.

We hope you enjoy the Colono experience and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions you may have,
