Serving Greek and Mediterranean, this restaurant sits in the leafy Parque de los Novios. Be sure to book if you’re going for the evening. Try the seafood orzo, or one of their wood fired pizzas. http://www.ouzosantamarta.com
2. El Balcon
This upstairs eatery in Parque de los Novios is a great place to enjoy tapas with a decent bottle of wine.
Specialising in ceviche, “gourmet” arepas and panini’s, Lulo is a top choice for lunch. Have one of their delicious smoothies, a great way to cool down in the Santa Marta heat. http://www.lulocafebar.com/menu.html
4. The Creperie
Boasting a simple menu of crêpes and salads, this is a new option that is great for a lighter bite.
5. Radio Burger
The best burgers in town, hands down, located in the building of Santa Marta’s old radio station. https://www.facebook.com/Radio-Burger-139494632869001/
