We enjoyed the ambiance and setting. Harbor activity was very minimal, but the board walk was teeming with people on a Friday evening. Servers were excellent and helpful. Food was served efficiently and pleasantly. Our son is fluent in Spanish so communication was facilitated. The old home was striking; we sat outside, I do not think they served inside. The second story is for special functions.

My family organized my birthday dinner in this restaurant. When getting there the first surprise was that the ordered decoration was completely missing - not even a table cloth were put on the table. The table in general was not ready, eventhough it was clearly communicated in the reservation how many persons will come. The next surprise followed soon - the waiters were completely overstrained by our order (5 persons ordering drink, 3 entrances and each one a main course ...). One of the entrances was a salad - without dressing, we needed to ask to get at least oil and vinegar. When they brought the main course, they served the meat but no cutlery also the side dish was brought much later - when we finally could start eating it was completely cold. My family organized a live band to play for my birthday and asked when reservating the table if this might cause problems with other guests. The administrator said she would take care of it and offering us a space where this is no problem at all. The group could not even play 3 songs when the same administrator came to us, explaining that the music needs to stop. So we had not the ordered decoration, no music and mediocre food and paid much more than in any other restaurant we've been in Santa Marta. Don't go there!!!

We booked there coz according to the manager when we talked by phone it was possible to celebrate a birthday with live music. It was a lie. After 2 songs they asked to stop the musicians coz the other manager said so. Result we paid 100 euro for 2 songs. The place is well located. The food wry expensive and nothing special. I wouldn't finish describing the amount of mistakes they did. At the end 150 euros for a normal food or 5 people, plus 100 got two songs. Horrible horrible experience.

I recomended this very good restaurant in front of the beach in the center of Santa Marta. It is a beautifull house that has history and a complete menue. It has a terrace, Bar and a traditional restaurant called Panamerican. If you are thinking about seafood this is the best place to go.
I had a sea food Salad as an entrance with grouper and shrimp casserole as a main course.
Everything was perfect and yummy!!

Restaurant is located in an old house right by the marina. Food was good but portions were small for the price. If you are looking for a formal dining place, this can be a good choice.
