“Excellent food. Slow service.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

We got there by 7:30 PM. It was 8:30 PM and We had had a few drinks, but we still we still had not got the main dish. However, when he came, it was fantastic. I recommend you try the octopus. It is the best I've had in many years.
The very back of the restaurant is a bit clocked, since the oven for pizza this is there. I recommend you stay either in the main room inside, or outside by the main square

“Good food, average service”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The location of the restaurant is great, at parque de los novios. There are many little restaurants in that area that one can enjoy. This restaurant was good. There is indoor seating with air conditioning and in the back, by the oven is a patio. We sat there since there were no tables available indoors. It was breezy and so it was not very hot out, but the oven made the space hotter. The service was slow and the people were not very helpful. The choices were good and the pizza we ordered was good, but it was nothing to write home about. I may visit it again upon someone's suggestions, but it will not be my first choice.

“Nice food, great service.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Ordered the fried calamari as starter and it wasn't that good. Then we ordered pizzas which were very nice, and really big.
The service was really good, waitress was very nice.
It looks Greek and nice atmosphere.

“Delicious food, friendly service, strong cocktails!”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Visited twice in our few days in Santa Marta. Both times, the food was excellent and the service friendly and fairly attentive. I had the fettuccine alfredo and the pollo portobello pizza. I'd recommend both! The pizzas are huge - they were happy to wrap up the leftovers.

“Great food, terrible service”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Nice location, great food, just really bad service, the waiters are clueless, do not know what's on the menu, how it is made, or the name of the ingredients. We waited a while to be seated outside, had 3 kids with us. When we finally got seated, had to change to a small able inside because of the rain, we had no problem with that. The food for the kids took over an hour for a pasta dish that can be done under 9 minutes, not all of us got the food at the same time, no service what so ever,and even at the end when we asked for the bill, the waitress had the nerves to ask for a tip. She had balls. One of the kids did not eat because he felt a sleep waiting, I asked the to pack it to go, they took the plate, and even 10 minutes after we paid the bill, our to go box was not there, we took off and someone from the restaurant brought it to us when we where getting into the car to leave.
It is shamefull that a pace like this, with such great food, would have so terrible service.
