“Fantastic Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

This restaurant has to have the best views of Rodadero available in Santa Marta. The food is fantastic and this restaurant is definitely worth a visit if you go to Santa Marta. Just take a taxi from Santa Marta it cost us around $8000 pesos. Be careful - the taxi's do not have meters...

“Good food, fair price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Great view over the bay, good service and great seafood. Only accessible by taxi, which are cheap. We ate outdoors on the patio which was nice. Disco was about to start at 9pm so we left, not our scene.

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We, the big group of us went for an evening meal. Breathtaking view at night. I heard that it is not so great during the day as you don't see the not so beautiful city down below. One has to take a taxi to reach the place. Group of our friend from the party arrived late bec. The taxi driver did not have a clue where it was. Beware, you may have to find another taxi in the middle of the place you don't know at all. Food was so and so, so was the service. One goes there for the view

“Best Food in Santa Marta with an incredible View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We watched the sunset over the water while we enjoyed a bottle of Argentinian wine. The ceviche, filet mignon, red snapper and passion fruit pies were all delicious. The service was excellent and the restaurant gave us the house specialty appetizer (plantain mash - wonderful! ) and a house salad, gratis. Bring your mosquito repellent if you're sitting outside (and you should definitely do so). Well worth a very reasonable taxi ride from our southern resort.
