Description: Confort Food from Santa Marta. The recipes that we use at our restaurant reflect the old days when people used to cook slowly and hand selected fresh ingredients. Try our "Arroz de Cerdo" rice with pork that is cooked using similar techniques as risotto. Or try "Enyucados", yuca cakes, made from yuca, coconuts, sugar and cheese with a twist od anisette.

This is probably the best option for local food. Traditional cuisine with top quality ingredients and superb presentation.

Excellent service and friendly staff. Cosy local and very nice decoration.

Definitely worth a visit.

Really small spot where you'll find a nice decoration. It seems they wanted to recreate a grandma's living room , and they made quite a good job . The chef it's a wonderful lady who was very polite. About the food , Mmmmmm I gotta say it's not what I expected. Though it was gonna be a little bit better based on the comments on trip advisor. The place has potential. Keep it up josefina .

If your path takes you to Santa Marta, you must use the opportunity to visit Josefina's to have home-made Colombian food. All dishes were extremely fresh and spiced just right. The boronia (sweet plaintain with mashed eggplant) was amazing. My taste buds are still remembering the perfect mixture of flavors. During our lunch there was a constant stream of customers both at the tables and getting take away. Terrific friendly atmosphere. Wonderful memory of Colombia.

The food at Josefina is wonderful. I have tried several dishes and they bring back memories of home cooking when I was a child. Try the arroz de cerdo and torta de platano, my favorites. The service is great, ingredients are fresh, and the restaurant has a cozy atmosphere.
