The food was a bit disapointing. We ordered salmon, which was dry, and the seafood spaghetti which was greasy and the seafood was chewy and not fresh. I think you can get much better food for the same price elswhere.

Karey K, Owner at Restaurante Karey, responded to this review

Hello Mr. Evebe, so sorry you did not enjoy our food. Our prices for seafood are from 5 usd to 15 usd. We buy almost all our seafood products directly to local fishermen, and we confirm they are fresh, as fresh that we buy live lobsters, live octopuss and live fish. Hope to see you again in our restaurante so... More

You can get there very good sea food. It is nicely served in a hot caserole. The sea food mainly differs in the way it is prepared. We had the caserole, cascada, and paella de mariscos.

We ate here on a Sunday evening. On that day, most people go the beach, so when we got to the restaurant it was still empty (6pm). The menu is quite elaborate and affordable. We chose a starter and a main dish which were both pretty good. The only thing they could've improved is by waiting a little longer between... More

We stay in Rodadero for about 3-4 months every year. This restaurant we love for its paella. Absolutely fantastico! Service is very good as well as the food. There are quite a few restaurants in Santa Marta and this is one of the ones we return to.

this restaurant on the first floor of the karey building has a longstanding reputation for its paella. however there are not many clients and its glory is more historic then actual.location is great.

The food was not good at all, the service was good. We personally don't recommend it, we did not like it at all. The prices for being in Colombia are expensive for the quality.

At this price range and location I was expecting an excellent restaurant but the experience was the opposite. The cocktail availability was low, foreign plates inauthentic and seafood was just okay. The only good part I would highlight was the service. For this price you could get better food quality in the city.
