We’ve been here a couple of times because of the ambiance, food and coffee. The waiter is a little bit chaotic but tries his best and is very nice. Runs around to help all the people at the best he can.
We didn’t find all of the food as tasty, but most of it is very good and original. The coffee is really good! The restaurant itself looks very friendly with the colors and is quite modern.
We liked it!!

This is clearly the epicenter of the backpackers and tourists as you hear mostly English spoken by the patrons. Had a nice experience here and the food was tasty and the menu varied with lots of good options from Thai to sandwiches. My only issue was that they refused to accept credit cards when I went for some reason. No Bueno.

It used to be one of my favourite places here in Santa Marta. Actually I still like the concept, the vibe and beds to relax...but the food and drinks are not as good as you would expect. The dishes are too simple in flavour and small for the price...The Frapuccinos used to be my favourite thing to get here, but they changed the size and quality...please, go back to what it used to be!!! We wanna bring more friends in the future...

Ikaro cafe was a wonderful little restaurant to find hidden amongst the chaos of Santa Marta, and one of the best vegetarian eatery’s I found on the north coast of Colombia.. with a tranquil vibe, daybeds to drink an array of exotic teas and other beverages amongst indoor plants and a waterfall cascading down the wall.. the staff were wonderfull and welcoming.. the food high quality, fresh and delicious.. I came back here multiple times and would sometimes chill there for hours. I highly recommend coming here.
