This was a really nice restaurant in one of the pedestrian streets of Santa Marta. The interior is modern, staff was friendly and attentive. I liked they have vegetarian and vegan choices. We ordered pita and falafel which was of high quality. Prices were appropriate. Only thing I have to lament is the paper and plate where the pita comes.... More

We had lunch here 2 times during our stay in Santa Marta. The chicken and falafel sandwich both were really nice and tasty. The fresh juice is also recommended. Restaurant is owned by same owner as Lulo which is a nice place to go for dinner.

Have tried both the falafel, babaganoush platter and falafel pitta. Equally delicious and fresh with homemade hummous, tatziki and babaganoush. Huge portions! Great juices too. Highly recommended.

The restaurant is situated at the very heart of the old town of Santa Marta - we had a breakfast which was top quality, great coffee!

Food here was so tasty, highly recommend the falafel wrap, it is really delicious. The falafels in it are amazing. The food here is a refreshing change from your typical South American food. Meat options available also - chicken, beef etc. So plenty to choose from. Portions are big so the food is filling also.

A nice little place with a basic, yet tasty and healthy menu. The falafel pittas are great and washed down with a natural juice really hits the spot.

Such a welcome respite from pizzas, burgers and meat! Finding delicious homemade falafel and hummus in a very plentiful salad (I couldn't finish it all) at such a good price has made my week. The smoothies are excellent too. Will definitely be going back for more before leaving Santa Marta. The only bad thing I can say is that the... More
