This restaurant is clean and has a great menu and was a short walk from our Casa Cuba among Cubans, went here for our drinks when no one else had them in this terrible world of COVID-19 😷. Recommend going into Santa Marta if you...are staying on Varadero for some local vibes and warm friendly people.More

Llegamos por la tarde con la intención de paras un rato en el lugar y pedimos una pila colada, 2 líneas de vodka y un jugo de piña pero ( y no somos personas exigentes ni extremistas) nada fue como lo pedimos. Primero el jugo...de piña tenía más agua que una presa y no sabía a nada. La piña colada era cualquier cosa menos la típica bebida tan rica. Y tercero que fue lo más molesto resultó que en ves de traer 2 líneas de vodka la mujer que nos atendió nos trajo dos vasos largos de vodka con hielo y agua llenos hasta arriba entonces llamamos a la muchacha( alta y con iluminaciones en el pelo) para explicarle que eso no era lo que habíamos pedido, entonces la muchacha regreso con los mismos vasos y la misma bebida solo que con un poco menos y sin hielo como si fuéramos tontos turistas. Entonces la llamamos una ves más y explicamos a lo que ella asintió y retiro solo la bebida de quién había hablado y regreso con un vaso con muy mala gana. Entonces quiero que se den cuenta y valoren más al turismo que les da de comer a sus hijos y los viste. [27/12 19:55] Vika: Посетили данное заведение. К сожалению, все пошло плохо с самого начала , и не улучшалось до конца . Начну с того , что мы совсем не привередливые люди, и чаще всего нам все нравится даже с маленькими нюансами . В этом баре мы заказали пинья колада, 2 рюмки водки и ананасовый сок. Принесли два стакана водки с водой и льдом до краёв ,сок так же разведённый с водой. Попросили поменять водку в итоге принесли чуть меньше , просто убрав лёд со стакана, но так же разведённую с водой. В конечном итоге , мы попросили поменять третий раз, девушка с не довольным, даже озлобленным и раздраженным лицом, принесла наконец-то одну рюмку водки, поменяв напиток только мне, игнорируя других за столом. Очень не рекомендую данное заведение. We have arrived in the afternoon with the intention of stopping by for a while , and enjoy out time . We have ordered piña colada 2 shots of vodka and a pineapple juice. (We are not demanding people by any means. ) The pineapple juice has been watered down to the point where I couldn't taste the juice. The piña colada was anything but the typical delicious drink. And third, which was the most outrageous thing , it turned out that instead of bringing 2 shots of vodka the lady who attended us brought us two tall glasses of vodka with ice and water filled to the top. We have called the lady to explain better our order and that this was not what we have asked for. The lady returned with the same glasses and the same drink only now with no ice and smaller quantity. We called her one more time and have asked to change the drinks as it didn't taste nothing like vodka. She reluctantly took one glass away , and had returned it with a very irritated face , ignoring the second glass of vodka and juice . In comparison, the new glass of vodka tasted stronger than the watered down version . Unfortunately , we couldn't recommend this place nor the service of this place.More

This is a small, cozy, restaurant in Santa Marta, with an option to eat inside or out. It is about a 20 minute walk from the last bus stop and easy to find... just google it before you leave home! Our first visit was in...January 2020. We were very impressed with the food and the service. We met the Chef, Adrian. Wendy was our waitress; she spoke English very well and was able to translate the menu, which is in Spanish. The food was excellent – extremely tasty and beautifully presented. The drinks were well made. I had lobster; my husband had a Cuban sandwich. We each had 2 Pina Coladas. Our total bill was just under $30 CUC; extremely great value! Overall, we would have given this restaurant a 5/5. We were so impressed that we invited 7 of our friends when we returned in March 2020. Unfortunately, the experience wasn’t the best this time and definitely fell short of our expectations. The waitress knew very little English. She also didn’t seem to understand what a Cuban Sandwich or a Cuba Libre were. We did have one Spanish speaking guest in our party, who was able to help us out, but even she had a difficult time communicating with the waitress in Spanish who seemed to be very shy. The drinks were still 5/5. Manuel was the bartender and the drinks were awesome. As far as the food goes, my husband and one other guest ordered a Cuban sandwich. It was basically a ham and cheese sandwich on sliced whitish bread. When we visited in January, it was served on a nice bun, with several toppings. When I showed the waitress a picture of the sandwich from last time, she brought the same sandwich back, but added hamburger patty. It was still not acceptable and we sent it back. As everyone else had almost finished eating by this time, my husband left the restaurant without eating. Most of the other food was a 3 ½ - 4. I had lobster, which was very tasty, just served differently with a different sauce than last time. (Interesting that if you look at the pictures on tripadvisor of the food, the same dishes, for example, lobster, sandwiches, always look different.) Our rating this time would be a 3.5/5. I would recommend to the restaurant to ensure there is some consistency in their dishes. What we ordered last time was totally different than this time, despite having ordered the exact same items. I would also recommend that, if you don’t have something, just say so. It is better to say so, rather than serving something sub-par. It is unfortunate that our experience this time, wasn’t as good as the first time that we visited, especially since we brought several guests with us and had rated it so highly. We still had a good experience though and received good value for our money.More

Last year we loved Atlantida, this year, we wouldn’t recommend it. The highlight this year was our raspberry daquiris (sadly, when we tried to order a second they were “out”). Our dinners were unremarkable and overpriced. I got pork instead of the beef I ordered,...which wasn’t remedied so left still hungry. We ate inside and moved to the patio after dinner, the cervesa we ordered never did come so we left and met our friends down the road at the ice cream place instead.More

I decided to go out for breakfast one morning and after reading reviews this was my choice. The breakfast was good and I had eggs, bacon, toast and friut with coffee. I think it was around 5 pesos. A few days later , I came...and it was also good but they did not have bacon that day which is not their fault. It was made up for and very good. Try it and you will not be dissapointed . There are not too many in Santa Marta .More

We had breakfast here twice while we stayed in Santa Marta. The food was delicious and the service fast and very friendly. Some staff will be able to serve you in English so language is not an issue.

It is one of the best places to visit in Santa Marta, the food is excellent and the drink as well, but what makes it a spectacular place worth returning is the magnificent attention of your waitress! Wendy was spectacular and very charismatic without doubt...I will come back soon.More
