Had Sunday lunch and the meals were great! The Robalo with Risotto and the Coconut Rice were exceptional. The waiting staff were polite but not exceptional.

We went to Rocoto suggested by a local friend and the experience was incredible! we shared 3 apetizers, cebiche, tiradito and pulpo a la parrilla, the best we've eaten in our lifes, specially the pulpo. Great Pisco Sour and Suspiro too!! The place to go in Santa Marta to try the best Peruvian Food!
