We went with my wife and daughter after a day of sailing. The food was out of this world and nothing to envy with any high end restaurant in the world.
Prices are great!!
The food is super high quality.
The drinks where a little slow as the bar is on the second floor and they take some time to arrive.
This is a must in Santa Marta!!

We came here as looking for a bite to eat whilst in Santa Marta. It is well located next to the most lively and enjoyable part of the town. The restaurant was surprisingly empty, which was a little disconcerting, but we ate in there anyway and were pleased we did.

The decor is quaint and cosy, and the staff were very kind and welcoming, especially given our pigeon Spanish.

We had the steak's which were well cooked to order, and enjoyed them, and so would recommend to anyone looking for a good bite to eat at reasonable prices.

The quality of food and the menu design immediately stand out at this cute French bistro-style restaurant, though don't let the french tag lead you astray. On the menu everything from their succulent, signature "Lomo de A Deriva" to Gyoza, Dim Sum, Crispy southern-style fried chicken, Thai curries and woks. There is something for everyone here.

At times the service can be a little slow. but it's worth the wait. Definitely one of the best restaurants in town.

I loved fusion type food offered in the menu. but i was a bit disappointed in the seasonings used. the tuna tartar was too salty (too much soy sauce i believe). ordered a mojito with passion fruit that was way too sour and thats how almost every dish was they were all over powering. i did love the camembert appetizer though. I really wanted to love the place, really cool decor. Maybe ill give it another shot.

We went to A Deriva for drinks only, as it was close to our hotel. It's a pretty, inviting space, and looks clean and modern compared to some of the establishments in Santa Marta. There were not enough vegetarian options to lure us back for a meal, but they had a good selection of beverages and we spent a half hour relaxing on the sofas.
