I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The frozen drinks are strong and amazing. We ate at this restaurant for the 3 nights we were in Santa Marta. We had almost every item on the menu. Everything was incredible. Great staff and service. You will be missing out if you don't check this place out.

Good evening. I would just like to take a minute and respond to your comment. First of all, this whole event was a misunderstanding and no harm came to or was going to happen to the kitten. It was not handled the way it should have been, but there was no harm intended. The cat had been coming in and... More

Ouzo and its young Brother are the best option to have dinner and drinks in Santa Marta. The food and service are just great. If. You happen to be in Santa Marta do not hesitate to stop here. You'll love it!!!

Very average food and very bad service. They took our order without paying attention, chating with other tourists and leaving before we could order wine. They picked up our plates before we had finished. On a more general note, they never smile. An example of a restaurant that failed to adapt itself to its new success. And even if it's... More

I consider Ouzo one of the top places in Santa Marta although it may require a reservation in order to avoid waiting to be seated. However, if you have to wait, it's worth the shot. The menu offers great variety of dishes, mostly Mediterranean cuisine, and a good variety of wines. Order the "Tierra y Mar" it's their version of... More

On the main plaza, this Greek restaurant serves a good choice of Mediterranean dishes. My lunch of sea bass with spinach was a lovely treat. Fans keep the interior pleasantly cool, though for the brave who can endure the heat, there are tables outside on the pavement.

Very well located on one of the biggest squares of the city center, this restaurant serves quality food for a reasonable price. The fresh juices are the perfect refreshment on a hot day and the pizzas taste as delicious as the look and smell. This place is highly recommended!

Ate here 3 times whilst at Santa Marta. Some of the best food I've had whilst in colombia.yum! Good selection of wines/drinks and attentive service. Our Spanish is not great at all, but we managed to get by quite easily. Definitely recommend trying it

Went there for dinner with my family. The place is very pretty, nicely decorated, looks like a real Greek restaurant. The food is delicious and the prizes although high, are good for foreigners. The service however was awful. Let me start by saying that service in general in Colombia is pretty bad. I know, I was a server here in... More
