Went for a late lunch (5ish) and the weather was perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the plaza. We felt the air conditioned inside didn't feel inviting. We had some cocunut prawns which were good, yet found the mixed plate of ceviches and stingray much more interesting. A recommended Santa Marta classic.

The owner (chucho) was drunk and bothering us all the time in the table, he was extremelly obsene with my wife's friends and insinuating terribly to them. It was a very bad experience for all of us, particularly for me bein the man accompanying the. Do not recomend it at... More

I loved the Chucho Salad at this place. Just delicious. My friends liked their dishes too, one of which was the risotto. However, I leave 4 stars instead of 5 because the service is not very good. I am Colombian and I appreciate that servers here are hands off and do not try to rush customers out of a restaurant.... More

I really enjoy the ceviche, which they call "raw salad". I recommend the shrimp one. Also, the coconut rice was absolute perfection. The service is good overall and the place is nice. It is very well known, and safe.

The queue outside this place was an indication that this was a good place to eat.The turnover was surprisingly fast and we didn't have to wait long for a table or for the food. Worth a visit for those who enjoy the traditional fish dishes of the coast.

The food was amazing here! I ordered the seafood Marinera and my boyfriend had the Steak. They were both full of flavor and perfect portions. Right next to the Parque de Los Novios. There is an ice cream store next door to fulfill the sweet tooth!

I just ate here and had a wonderful meal outside on their terrace. The menu has a ton of fish options and the dishes range from 25-35 mil. The "chucho grande" was a delicious ceviche assortment and the robalo de maracuya was excellent! Great location just off of Plaza de los novios!
