This place gotta have one of the best views in Santa Marta . Went to have drinks with a friend and they treated us very well . Good cocktails . Didn't try the food but our neighbors were eating crunchy chicharrones that smelled delicious !!

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

We have been twice in the end of april and the experience was really bad, the first night the server was really unfriendly and got angry because we asked her to light the candle on our table so we told her what we thought of her.As if was not enough the second night the server forgot to order our starters and just came with our main courses so we said what happened and he said " I forgot to order them " so we said and now? his answer was the kitchen is already close! We hot offered a dessert after talking with the boss and eating our food cold."We didnt take the dessert because we found terrible how they solved that problem" I dont recommend spending your money there!!! Awful experience :(

“Birthday at Burukuka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

The view was fabulous. We watched the sun set and the lights of Rodadero bloom. We enjoyed several cocktails. My husband and our guest Jo enjoyed their meals-both had fish entrees. I don't know what inspired me to have a Caesar salad...perhaps I was thinking about later indulgences. Whatever my reason, don't make that mistake!!!

When we left about 8:30PM the place was bustling. For the most part, we enjoyed the sunset with a few others having drinks. There were children in the early evening.

We took a cab from Rodadero and then a cab from the restaurant to Santa Marta for more celebration. The cost was about $4.00.

“Good view but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Amazing view, we went for dinner but afternoon drinks might better. The cocktails were good, but pricey, cocktails and beers 20k and 10k COP respectively. Service was good but food nothing special, better places to eat in Santa Marta
