Just off the main drag, this is a popular restaurant and gets well deserved good reviews. Super clean, great seafood dishes, friendly staff, small but adequate wine list, attentive service.

I don’t love seafood so my options were limited, but the white fish ceviche was outstanding, and the grilled beef was excellent. Note that the main dishes do not come with sides so you need to order separately. No reservations taken but the line moves...More

Every time I visit Santa Marta I go to this restaurant. The food is very good and their prices are reasonable. If you like seafood, try their warm “picada mixta” or their “sopa de mero” and don’t skip the coconut rice .
