“Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Burukuka has amazing views! Go here for that. I wish that we would have gotten there earlier so that we could have seen everything in daylight also, but it was a great experience. The food was ok. Not the best I ate in Santa Marta, but pretty good. The way I saw it, we were paying for the atmosphere. It is hard to find, so I would recommend taking a taxi. Also, the night scene gets busy, so if you are going with small children, earlier is better I would say.

“Overpriced, great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Expensive considering what you get for the price. They still keep coolers on the floor with ice and beer - tacky considering the price. the tables outside need refinishing from the sun. Incredible views..

“Well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is nearly impossible to find, down circuitous back roads and through some other buildings security gates. But stop often and ask for directions, because its worth it. Perched on a high hill, the twinkling lights of the Rodadero beachfront stretch away into the horizon. But the patio is too windy, come into the sumptuous interior for brilliantly prepared fish, local specialties, and a very adequate wine list (though they would do well to keep the low end wines in stock for travelers with a budget.) The staff is engaging and knowledgable. Next time I hope they put up signs so I can get back to this wonderful perch.

“wonderful location, great views, good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

we spent New Year's Eve at this beautiful restaurant. We greatly enjoyed the view, the food, the atmosphere!
If you don't have your own transportation arrangements, getting out of this location can be a bit challenging!

“The best sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Burukuka definitely represents the best place in El Rodadero to enjoy a beautiful sunset! Romantic and very trendy it's a place you will have to visit! It's a bit expensive compare to the other places (a beer costs 7000 pesos)....but the view and the atmosphere you can enjoy will pay it off! Very reccomended!
