Went there to enjoy the sunset and some drinks and were delighted with the views. We had just an appetizer with our drinks that were very nice and according to the prices very well made. Good service and were there for a few hours sipping our cocktails and enjoying the views. Full of local people having fun and drinks. Food... More

I went to Buritaka because it was recommended to me by locals. The place is nice, it has a nice view but the food and service were pretty mediocre. At around 10pm, the place stops restaurant service and becomes sort of a night club. It was nice to have a few drinks out in the open overlooking the coast. I... More

Español: Como muchos han dicho, lo mejor de este lugar es la vista. Recomiendo llegar antes de las 6pm para disfrutar el hermoso atardecer. Realmente es una vista única de Santa Marta. En cuanto a la comida, la estrella fue la entrada, el callejee fusion, un pure típico y exquisito. El risotto vegetariano también se destaca, los otros platos son... More

Lovely restaurant which offers an amazing view. Arrived right during sunset and the view caught our breath away. Appart from its location, the food does not disappoint. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes serving both seafood and meat. The red snapper served with platanos is a must try!

Ate dinner twice at this restaurant while staying in Santa Marta for 6 weeks. The view is worth the trip. The food is good and service was nice. It is a bit tricky to find, we drove ourselves and used Google Maps. I would recommend taking a taxi over walking. It is a bit steep and high heels will be... More

Burukuka is a great place to have a nice romantic dinner with a view. It sits at the top of a mountain overlooking the rodadero city. Contrary to other reviews, our service was good. It is a little hard to find if you don't have gps. The food was delicious and prices were decent. The hours of operation are not... More

Great place to spend an afternoon sunset with a few drinks and friends. The drinks were all good and the Capirina were delicious. We did not eat any food so I cannot comment on the food. All cocktails were well prepared and delicious.

We arrived by taxi just after sundown and got a table with slightly obstructed views of the beach. In front of our table, at the edge of the terrace there was a bar table and stools attached to the railings to appreciate the beautiful view. We ordered a variety of cocktails from the extensive menu. The drinks arrived very quickly... More
