Went here because of other reviews, found it a bit cold & sterile, not particularly atmospheric.
Food was good, not great and we found it more expensive than all the other restaurants we have tried in Colombia-this, however, is cheaper than US restaurants of similar quality. Good service.

We stumbled across Made in Spain by chance on a Sunday evening after wandering around central Santa Marta and finding virtually nowhere else open for dinner. This really was a very pleasant surprise.

The tapas were exceptional... calamari, garlic prawns, bruschetta, patatas bravas etc. - all perfectly cooked and delicious.

Although the place was quiet (it seems that going out for dinner is a little unusual on Sunday nights in Santa Marta), the decor was very nice and it was lovely to sit in the open air courtyard whilst eating.

This was one of the best meals of our holiday, yet was also one of the cheapest. For a great value and excellent quality meal in Santa Marta, it is wholeheartedly recommended!

The physical arrangement of the tables, the subtle use of lighting, the soft music and the choice to be able to eat under the stars make this a delightful place to dine. We had the Mediterranean Salad (crisp vegetables with a light dressing), the chicken with mushrooms and Angel's Pasta (with a generous compliment of fresh basil)...all were excellent! Try a creme de caramel for dessert! The staff were first class as was our whole experience.

The restaurant is very nice and the service is quite good.The food is fine but I didn't find it excellent (I had the paella as main course). Try the patatas bravas!

Honestly - we didn't have a full meal here (just apps, drinks, and desert) and the presentation was very nice and the waiters extremely attentive. The courtyard was very cute and fun. The food was at best a 4/5 (mussels were good size but overcooked/chewy) and seemed like they were trying to present a higher quality than what they were. All in all - as a change of pace IF you have the money - try it, but might be better to save your money for some street ceviche and drinks!
