really good - Edit

This had really good food so we went multiple times even though it was pricier than we normally spent, but worth it.

Great atmosphere, good food and service - Edit

Went to this place twice a day for a couple of days after having checked out a variety of other vegan restaurant in Santa Marta. This one tops all of them for location, service and delicious food. The menu has a big variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes for a very fair price. Best variety of vegan desserts I have found for a long time. Made me addicted.

Location is right off Parque de los Novios in the old center of Santa Marta. Open until 10 pm, kitchen closes at 9:30. The Venezuelan waiter is awesome, perfect service, very caring.

Very fair prices, 20-28k for a main dish. I don't consider this expensive as others have mentioned. That's 7 USD or 6€, for this you get just trash like a cheap burger in the US (without tax and tip) or Europe, so no complaints from my side.

All in all highly recommended.

Pros: Variety of dishes, great location, good service

Not great food for dinner - Edit

I have friends going there for breakfast/lunch and they loved it, I went there at night. I had the portobello hamburger that was alright, a bit dried; and my friend had the pad thai, that was ok but doesn’t taste at all like a pad Thai. Service was quite slow, especially for the bill, we had to run after the waiter to get it. I’ll give it another try for breakfast/lunch.

Really pleasant staff and delicious food - Edit

The menu is very versatile (Asian, Italian, columbian) and has lots of vegan options or you just ask for vegan. Desserts are mainly non vegan.
We ate a nice Gazpacho, had a Thai Green Papaya salad and for mains Pasta Primavera and a tofu based Pad Thai. The juices are awesome, like Papaya with a hint of ginger or Mango with Passion Fruit. Too late for coffee for me, but their coffee is very nice, too.
Staff is VERY friendly. Highly recommended.

Pros: good vegan choices, but not only (which I consider

Cons: not exactly cheap, but compares well with other ve

Café bueno - Edit

Según mi amiga el café era delicioso, yo tenía un jugo de Guanabana para 2500 muy rico hecho con agua de panela en vez de azúcar, el cinamonroll era un poco seco los smoothies eran okay pero el helado no muy especial y muy "icy" el mejor helado de la costa se come en Cartagena enla gelateria tramonti :) en total era un poco caro, precios europeos pero seguramente es una buena opción en santa marta igual la comida es mejor en Cartagena!! Muchas opciones más allá

So good, I ate here 3 times in 24 hours - Edit

Great food - with a wide vegan selection, including breakfast options. I enjoyed my lunch so much I came back for dinner that night and breakfast the next morning! Not cheap but food is really good. My favourite was the Thai spiced pumpkin soup, followed by the vegan panna cotta. Just wish I had saved room for the vegan ice cream!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Great coffee

Delicious but expensive - Edit

I ate here 3 times in November 2016. Most vegetarian restaurants in Santa Marta are only open at lunch but this one stays open until 9-ish. They have lots of options on the menu, even gluten-free and vegan. The food is delicious but a bit pricey.

Pros: lot's of items on menu

best soymilk coffee!! - Edit

This place has incredibly good vegan coffees! Went back several times solely for the coffee.
Had the lunch menu ones (which is the only affordable option, as everything else is very pricey) and it was so-so. Soup was great, veggie burger was filling but not that great.
Restaurant itself is beautiful with very friendly and helpful staff and clean kitchen!

Pros: beautiful place, amazing coffee

Best vegan food I had in Colombia - Edit

This place is amazing. I came here several times and the food was always delicious. Several clearly marked vegan options including sandwiches, gnocchi, salads, rice paper rolls, pad thai and brownies. They make incredible limonada de coco. Varied service but never too bad. A bit pricey but the food is worth it.

Amazing! - Edit

Ikaro Cafe is amazing! Their menu has something for everyone (vegan, vegetarian, or meat eater). They also have a daily vegetarian lunch menu which is 15000 COP and comes with a soup, main, and fresh juice. The food is delicious, and the portions are satisfying. I visited almost everyday that I was in Santa Marta for their excellent coffee and delicious vegan ice cream!

Pros: Vegan friendly, Excellent coffee

Great Food For $$$ - Edit

Ikaro would be one of my top Colombian restaurants, if not for the prices. All the main dishes are around $22,000-$28,000, which is very expensive for Colombia. However, it's worth it for a meal - the food is innovative and delicious. I'd recommend the cashew cheese ravioli, the pad Thai, anything with their house made bread and hummus, their vegan ice creams (huge find in Colombia), and their amazing vegan brownie - chewy, gooey and huge.

Excellent food in a nice atmosphere - Edit

I came here twice during my stay in Santa Marta and I absolutely loved the place. The interior design is really nice and gives the place a relaxing feeling.

The lunch I had was really delicious and the portion very big. I ordered a coffee as well and I really loved that they had a choice of soymilk or almond milk.

The stuff was super friendly and I felt very welcomed.

They also sell a lot of products like müsli, quinoa and nuts in their restaurant.

Pros: Tasty food, Nice atmosphere, Nice location

Delicious! - Edit

After three days of eating crappy food in Tayrona, this meal seemed like one of the best of my life. I had the dish of the day, which was a coconut curry, and it was ama-zing. So I felt compelled to write a review immediately. My friend had the pad thai and said it was almost better than the original she had in Thailand. The menu lists vegan options. Service is great and the place is super relaxing. The dish of the day (15000 pesos) could be a little bit cheaper though. But I definitely recommend it!

Pros: interior design, vegan friendly , service
