Great food, good service, beautiful place with a stunning terrace! If you come from Santa Marta's old town, make sure however to ask for a taxi to bring you back otherwise you are the mercy of taxis who charge you 3 times what you paid to get there...

Burukuka has amazing views! Go here for that. I wish that we would have gotten there earlier so that we could have seen everything in daylight also, but it was a great experience. The food was ok. Not the best I ate in Santa Marta, but pretty good. The way I saw it, we were paying for the atmosphere. It is hard to find, so I would recommend taking a taxi. Also, the night scene gets busy, so if you are going with small children, earlier is better I would say.

Expensive considering what you get for the price. They still keep coolers on the floor with ice and beer - tacky considering the price. the tables outside need refinishing from the sun. Incredible views..

The restaurant is nearly impossible to find, down circuitous back roads and through some other buildings security gates. But stop often and ask for directions, because its worth it. Perched on a high hill, the twinkling lights of the Rodadero beachfront stretch away into the horizon. But the patio is too windy, come into the sumptuous interior for brilliantly prepared fish, local specialties, and a very adequate wine list (though they would do well to keep the low end wines in stock for travelers with a budget.) The staff is engaging and knowledgable. Next time I hope they put up signs so I can get back to this wonderful perch.

we spent New Year's Eve at this beautiful restaurant. We greatly enjoyed the view, the food, the atmosphere!
If you don't have your own transportation arrangements, getting out of this location can be a bit challenging!
