“Good food, fair price”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Great view over the bay, good service and great seafood. Only accessible by taxi, which are cheap. We ate outdoors on the patio which was nice. Disco was about to start at 9pm so we left, not our scene.

“Great view”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We, the big group of us went for an evening meal. Breathtaking view at night. I heard that it is not so great during the day as you don't see the not so beautiful city down below. One has to take a taxi to reach the place. Group of our friend from the party arrived late bec. The taxi driver did not have a clue where it was. Beware, you may have to find another taxi in the middle of the place you don't know at all. Food was so and so, so was the service. One goes there for the view

“Best Food in Santa Marta with an incredible View”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We watched the sunset over the water while we enjoyed a bottle of Argentinian wine. The ceviche, filet mignon, red snapper and passion fruit pies were all delicious. The service was excellent and the restaurant gave us the house specialty appetizer (plantain mash - wonderful! ) and a house salad, gratis. Bring your mosquito repellent if you're sitting outside (and you should definitely do so). Well worth a very reasonable taxi ride from our southern resort.

“Great view, Excellent food, but slow service”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We sat outside, where we had a fantastic view off the beach. It was a bit windy, but it had been a very hot day, so we really enjoyed the evening where we were.
All the main dishes we tried were excellent. I suggest you take the shafts of recommendation on the menu. It consists of eight or nine dishes, which are all very good. Try the mero, a local fish

“Wonderful location and dancing: average food and drinks”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The setting of this restaurant can't be beat, on a bluff above Rodadero. Reminds me a bit of Cafe del Mar in Cartagena. Went on a Saturday night for dinner, which was merely average. In fact, the beef filet I had was one of the worst I'd had in a while. But, come 10 PM or so, the place really livens up, and people are drinking and dancing all over the patio, making it quite entertaining. It wasn't cheap, either, so stick to beers and a snack or two if you are on a budget.
