Here I am again in Santa Marta, at the La Placita Burger Bar and I find out that the Burgers here are tasty, well prepared and served in nice looking manner. The place has nice music and it is visited by locals and tourists all the same. Give it a Try!

I'm not into burger science, but every now and then you come across what ranks as a most excellent burger, and you know it - sadly, you wont find this at La Placita. Slow service - 20 minutes for a burger with no other customers - reasonable but profoundly average burger, good fries. Was expecting more in light of the... More

We tried this one place on our stay in Santa Marta. We chose it as we were in the mood for a hamburger and the other place was full on the square.

Definitely visit La Placita if you want a great burger! Prices are good, on the lower end of what you'll pay for a main meal in Santa Marta and the food is made from good quality ingredients. Worth a visit.

I guess I had higher expectations as I heard good things. However it appears management is no longer involved with business and it shows. Service was almost nothing. Food while OK sure was not worth the heavy heavy price. They are off the park so I imagine rent costs would be less but they sure did not pass along savings... More

If you want a burger in Santa Marta go here. We both had the Placita Burger which was delicious and juicy. Every variety on the menu looked good. Very casual, prompt service, indoor A/C seating, great value.
