Wonderful dinner. Expensive by Colombian standards but not by ours. Excellent wine list, menu and outstanding service. The atmosphere was exceptional and the food was delicious. We felt like royalty and were treated as such. I had the garlic mushrooms and my husband had the octopus as appetizers and for dinner I had the Herbed Chicken with spaghetti and my... More

If you are prepared to pay CAD$20 to $40 per plate and enjoy small food portions go for it. The food was enjoyable, very, very tasty. The decor was special the staff were friendly, Piaf and Aznavour were signing, but when it came to paying the bill, ouch! We paid around CAD$450. We were 9 adults and 3 children. One... More

If you want an air conditioned restaurant with linen table cloths, a great selection of wines, great food, and friendly service, Basilea is the place to go. From our muscle appetizer, blue cheese salad, robalo in Parmesana, to our crepes susette with pairs, including a cabernet/merlot combination wine, I have only good things to say. Well done Basilea.

Had dinner here with my partner, we had heard great reviews about this place but it was very disappointing. I ordered the steak & pork medallion dish and it was overcooked and tasteless. I'm not usually one to write reviews or pick on restaurants for small mistakes but I honestly felt that I had been ripped off for the price... More

Eat here for a quiet, sophisticated meal. Good attention to detail, nice linen and tableware. Good menu with varied choice. Squid starter a little over and lacked seasoning, however made up for with a fantastic fillet steak, properly rare and with pepper! Squid main delicious with good balance. Only criticism was salmon starter, too much lemon but that is the... More

What a lovely restaurant - white tablecloths, nice wine glasses, very elegant interior. The menu is very large with lots to choose from. I had a delicious blue cheese salad, my husband had the sautéed mushrooms to start. Both were delicious - garlicky mushrooms, very fresh and still slightly crisp, and my salad consisted of baby lettuce with a light... More

Food and service were excellent. One of our best meals in Santa Marta. Including wine and dessert a meal for two was about $70. Good wine selection.

It's a pleasant and small place at Santa Marta's Centro Histórico. I first thought "why typical Pacific coast's food right here at Santa Marta, one of the core Caribbean cities from Colombia?" but then I realized that the essence of the new restaurants and pubs near the Parque de los Novios is that they're cosmopolitan places run by people from...
