Native ingredients, fresh well-structured dishes, live music, and nice staff. I had a great time sitting at the bar for a solo dinner, the bartender girl was also my attendant, she made recommendations on some dishes and explained in detail the ingredients of every dish....I congratulate the chef for his and his team's passion for their work, although there's still a lot to innovate and perfect. I widely recommend this restaurant for those who want to try authentic local food.More

Super creative menu, and the freshniss of the ingredients can be tasted. The space cozy eventhough they tried to seat me right in front of a wall into the new area.

Stopped by without a reservation but just as they'd opened and they graciously allowed us a quick dinner. Their loma was peppery and perfectly prepared, along with a plantain/smoked poblano puree, and my husband enjoyed the arroz coco with shrimp and seafood, which was equally...amazing. After those principales we didn't have room for dessert, but they looked fantastic too! Wonderful service, great A/C as well.More

Have eaten at Guasimo on three occasions. It is one of the best restaurants with most authentic Colombian and north coast indigenous cuisine I have had in Colombia. I am going back for a fourth visit tomorrow. I know I will not be disappointed. You...must have reservations. Seafood, pork, chicken dishes standout. But the soups are the best. The chef/owners commitment to locally sourced ingredients and use of seasonally fresh vegetables create diversity in the menu year round. I highly recommend it.More

Happy Surprise , Went to visit Santa Marta for the first time about 2 years back staying in a hotel downtown. An unpleasant experience around a dirty noisy " parque de novios" with no decent restaurants around and I left a day earlier than planned....Coming back staying in an appartment next to the Hilton an outing downtown let me discover this well appointed cute restaurant serving deliscious exotic fish/seafood. Had a deliscious smoked coliflower starter and a seafood bowl full of large shrimp. Ambiance and food highly recommended.More
