Chef Santaella transforms what used to be his catering workshop into an architectural acclaimed space committed to offer a menu full of flavor using many local ingredients sourced fresh from a farmer’s market only feet away. The space is one full of history where green, brown and wood tones décor the place. An interior garden full of native plants and trees such as papaya and ornamental bananas serves as the focal point of the main dining room. <br /><br />Offering a 75-seat dining room and a a 16-seat bar designed for guests to eat in, Santaella celebrates the roots of the island's comida criolla, and incorporates techniques, flavors and fusions from around the world into its food.

"Excellent food! Deliciously combined tapas selections. The goat cheese Quesadillas are to die for. Service was ok, but it was usually difficult to get the servers' attention. A very romantic environment but pretty lively on weekend nights. Might be hard to hear your date. Not much nearby street parking so valet is a pretty good option."

"Food was not anything special. Service was subpar. Won't return."
