A Deriva is a recently opened french-styled bistro restaurant just off Parque de los Novios on calle 19. Originally located in the small neighboring town of Taganga, by popular demand it moved to it’s new home in El Centro about a year ago and has an interesting mix of French, Asian and European inspired dishes on the menu.
Highlights include the prawn or beef wok, (ask for it spicy!), Tartare de Res (beef tartare), crunchy, southern-style fried chicken, and their signature dish; Lomo A Deriva, which is without doubt one of the juiciest and tastiest steaks you will find in Santa Marta, if not the whole of Colombia! You can also enjoy some great cocktails upstairs in their chilled lounge-bar, and relax on the quiet outdoor terrace or their cozy balcony with a classic french cafe and watch the passing tourists go about their day on the busy pedestrian street below.
