First visit was amazing. Got a chicken arepa with soup and a delicious dessert. Second time they just gave me the chicken arepa. We’re they just being nice the first time? Either way, the arepa was high quality and the taste and presentation strayed from...the norm. Wish more Colombian restaurants did that.More

Lovely shaded patio in the back for lunch on a hot afternoon. The ceviche, arepa sombrero, and mojito de maracuya were all amazing!

What a great find! This restaurant offers delicious food and yummy drinks! The caprese panini was fabulous. Lulo’s back patio “La Jardinera” is super cool designed and a nice escape from the street hustle and bustle. We loved it so much we went back a...second time!More

I got there joining a couple friends who were already there and ordered. Sat down and waited for a while, the waiter did not even ask what I wanted to eat/drink and I just had to share the food with them. Food was tasty, I...admit, but service was nothing memorable. Llegué y me uní a un par de amigos que estaban allá y ya habían ordenado.Me senté y esperé por un momento, el mesero nunca preguntó lo que deseaba comer/beber y tuve que compartir el plato con mis amigos. Admito que la comida es deliciosa, pero el servicio dejó mucho que desear.More

Completely dissapointed. Really bad place for food or cocktails. Need to improve a lot. First service was bad and slow. I had a reservation for 8:40 I got a table 30 mins later (and i have a baby!). Second food was disgusting. We ordered an...Arepa with shrimps and a chicken wrap. Both horrible. Margarita cocktail didnt taste like tequila at all. Save your family or couple abad moment and please DONT GO!More

We probably aren't the target crowd for Lolo, so if your a backpacker looking for a cheap eat then please skip this review. The service was pretty slow (40+ minutes to get what was essentially sandwiches and the place wasn't full). The dishes were trying...to be inventive but mostly tasted like a mash of not fully complementary flavors. I can't say it was 'bad' in any real way, just nothing memorable.More

This was our first dining experience in Santa Marta and it was a great place to start. It's a great place for good lunch or light dinner if you're looking for something local with a bit of flare. Although I am not a big fan...of arepas, I had one of the arepa dishes and loved it. It was an arepa with cheese topped with a mound of delicious and fresh ingredients. The atmosphere and decor is also both casual and sheik. The Covid protocols are also good with glass pane dividers that have been installed in between tables. There were many other dishes on the menu that looked tasty and interesting, so we would definitely return here again!More

Had to kill a few hours before a check in and staff were both friendly and accommodating. Food was great too. Brunch really recommended. Smoothies superb.

Hello!! No, you don't need to make reservations. Sometimes you might need to wait a couple of minutes to get a table because IT IS SO GOOD, it might be crowded but is worth the waiting. Hope you enjoy (or that you have... More
