We had dinner here one evening. We had a lovely shrimp cocktail for starters. My wife had chicken florentine and I had lasagna bolognese. Everything was superb. The portions were very generous, we could easily have been satisfied if we had shared an entree between us. Very nice dinner here.

I thought it a bit ironic that they had no ceviche given Chucho's start. Very good red snapper and the option to pick the size one wants is a great approach. The pulpo and shrimp salad was excellent. I found the shrimp in golf sauce and plain shrimp very bland. Excellent service.

This place has one of the best food in the area. The lobster was great and not expensive at around $20.00 with three tails. The patacones con ahogao were fresh and delicious. Service was also excellente and I hope to come back soon when I'm in Santa Marta.
