We ate here on a Sunday evening. On that day, most people go the beach, so when we got to the restaurant it was still empty (6pm). The menu is quite elaborate and affordable. We chose a starter and a main dish which were both pretty good. The only thing they could've improved is by waiting a little longer between... More

We stay in Rodadero for about 3-4 months every year. This restaurant we love for its paella. Absolutely fantastico! Service is very good as well as the food. There are quite a few restaurants in Santa Marta and this is one of the ones we return to.

this restaurant on the first floor of the karey building has a longstanding reputation for its paella. however there are not many clients and its glory is more historic then actual.location is great.

Dear Anton, thanks for visiting our restaurant, hope you enjoy the paella and our location. Normally we have a lot of clients, it depends on the hour and the date. The restaurant was established in 1975. Hope to see you again. Thanks for your comment. More

The food was not good at all, the service was good. We personally don't recommend it, we did not like it at all. The prices for being in Colombia are expensive for the quality.

We were in this restaurant for a dinner. We found it on TripAdvisor. We had shrimp cocktail and grilled octopus as a starter. Main courses were grilled seafood mix and grilled lobster with garlic sauce. For drink we had red wine sangria and lemonade. I have to say that the food was super super delicious. The lobster was the best... More

At this price range and location I was expecting an excellent restaurant but the experience was the opposite. The cocktail availability was low, foreign plates inauthentic and seafood was just okay. The only good part I would highlight was the service. For this price you could get better food quality in the city.

Karey was so good that we ate there twice in two days. They serve really good seafood, I mean really good! The place is located right on the beach so you have an option of outside or inside dinning. We found service to be really good. Enjoy!!
