We had lunch today at soul food, it's just on a more quiet sidestreet of the main touristy streets. A lot of tasty options (including vegetarian). The waitress was extremely nice and helpfull. Good prices, I would recommend swinging by if you have the chance.

We greatly enjoyed the food in this small, friendly, unpretentious restaurant. Can strongly recommend to anyone wishing to avoid the usual tourist traps.

Recommended by our hostel and did not disappoint! Super flavorful food and fantastic service. Our Spanish is not that great, and we were so fortunate to have an amazing bilingual server, Samantha, who was so lovely and helpful. My dish was new to their menu,...and it was kind of like a seafood stew. I loved it. Would highly recommend to any travelers in Santa Marta!More

My girlfriend and I were recommended Soul Food by the front desk staff at Masaya hostel in Santa Marta and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our server Samantha was so attentive and sweet, and the food was the best we've had in Colombia thus...far. Thank you Samantha and thank you Soul Food!More

The staff is very friendly but the food was disappointing. They use high quality products and the presentation is very good but when it's time to eat the food bland and very sweet. I would highly recommend you avoid.

We went there two nights in a row because at the first night they didn’t have the roasted chicken left and I really wanted to try it which i did in the second night. Thank god! It was really good and the mango salad (with...roasted lentils 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼) was a good addition. The Jamaican curry was very tasty as well as the chipotle chicken. When we were offering to switch table so that a group of five could get a table they served us a gratis dessert (which was also very delicious). the water is also free. Definitely worth the visit!!More

I believe the place can be really nice and we just got a bit unlucky. There was a larger group so we had to wait for our food for a really long time. Once we got our food, my food was kind of cold. I...got new fried potatoes which were okayish. Steak was good - nothing special. During our dinner, lights went out. This lasted for several hours - they faced the power outage in other restaurants as well. The setup with candles was nice but I felt they focused more on the power outage than their customers. Can’t say I would go there again, but I recommend you to go as everyone else has liked it. By the way, my friend’s noodle soup was really tasty - recommend that one over the steaks!More

Food was average. Small restaurant, not many tables. The food wasn’t great, I ordered the Jamaican chicken curry, which in fact wasn’t a curry at all. It was chicken cooked in curry powder, served with rice. It wasn’t saucy at all. My partner ordered a...ramen type dish and this also wasn’t great. The prawns in the ramen were very small, more like shrimps. Not reasonably priced, and not ‘Soul Food’ at all. Was expecting the dishes to be far more Caribbean oriented.More
