El Bistró

International in Santa Marta

Aiming to be a little more romantic than the other full-to-the-brim restaurants off Parque de los Novios, El Bistró has attentive service, tinkling piano music in the background, and elegant food prepared with a delicate touch. Expect the likes of beef tenderloin, Patagonian roast lamb with herb-covered potatoes, or a fine Italian agnolotti (ravioli-like pasta).

There are several sidewalk tables if you don't mind being hit on by the ubiquitous street musicians.
