“Close to Parque de Los Novios”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The food and service was excellent and reasonably priced. It was somewhat difficult to find, but the locals pointed us in the right direction.

“Delicious food!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I'm surprised at the limited number of reviews for this restaurant. Rocoto was our favorite restaurant in the whole city and we had tried several of the top rated TripAdvisor restaurants in Santa Marta. We ate here multiple times during our stay and every meal was delicious. One of their cooks, Daniel, spoke great English and was able to give us great recommendations. The first dish he recommended was the causa trio which we had never heard of before, but it is amazing. Like mashed potatoes with ceviche on top, but more awesome than what you're imagining. Do not leave without eating this.

Other than that, the lomo saltado was tasty as were their other seafood dishes. Everything was super fresh and seasoned perfectly. Prices were very reasonable. The restaurant itself is clean, bright, and air-conditioned (well appreciated in the hot city!). Wholeheartedly recommended!

Amazing ceviche and salmon in this Peruvian restaurant. Great service too, as we met the Chef who recommended fabulous fish dishes. I would highly recommend it.

“Great peruvian food in Santa Marta”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

On the same street as Casa de Isabella, this unpretentious restaurant delivers great food. We went in for a fast and light lunch, but were surprised by the excellent Corvina Chorillana and the Sudado de corvina, as in Lima...unfortunately we were attending a party afterwards and did not try the ceviches or dessert.

“Amazing peruvian food!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Best meal we had in Colombia. The limonada de coco was delicious, as was the ceviche. We also had a seafood dish was coconut rice and plantains that was incredible. Highly recommended!
