Came mid afternoon and they were still busy. I ordered the fried snapper. You get a choice of sizes 1/2 pound, 3/4 pound, 1 pound and so on. My dish came with a side salad and fried plantains. It wasn't the best/greatest fish but it was okay. Quite a few people looked to be eating the ceviche and various salads. Service was indifferent.

It was ok. The ambience, service and location are excellent. The food we didn’t think was that great

This is one of the most popular seafood restaurants in town, the food is great and very tasty, the place is comfortable and nice. But the service is absolutely awful, waiters were slow and rude, they forgot our order and have absolutely no idea what the dishes are like. We even talked to the owner and voiced a complaint

This is a very well known restaurant in Santa Marta, but more or less the same quality seafood dishes as everywhere else. I had the large whole Red Snapper, which was very filling and only okay. The shrimp cocktail to start was the highlight.

The restaurant is very small and the food was good but not great! The taxi took us here by mistake. We’re looking for the Chucho Blue by the water. Donde Chucho is more of a local restaurant that is good but It was our first night and would have enjoyed a better view!
