Ouzo is a name that has become synonymous with quality. Focused on finding the best and freshest ingredients whether it be meat, seafood, fruits, or vegetables, we strive to deliver true mediterranean cuisine by blending the traditional with our own originality.
We try to highlight the different regions of the mediterranean creating plates with a simple elegance. Whether it be pan seared octopus with feta cheese, “Arni Sto Fuorno” (greek roasted lamb with orzo), succulent pork with pepperonis and capers, or an original pizza cooked in our hand built wood fired brick oven (house specialty is creamy gruyere, summer squash, arugula, serrano jam, and black truffle honey), you will sense the care we have for both ingredients and technique.
Combine this with the relaxed atmosphere and attentive service, and Ouzo brings a wonderful dining experience to the table.

ABOUT THE TEAM
Ouzo´s chef Michael McMurdo is an American chef
graduate form the Institute of Culinary Education in both the culinary and restaurant management programs.
Upon graduating, Mike found himself working with an amazing group of chefs at the then 1-Star Michelin restaurant in midtown New York, Anthos. He credits his experience at Anthos for making him the chef that he is today.
After deciding to leave his intense life as an NYC cook, he headed south. Enticed by an old friend who had moved earlier to Colombia, Mike was convinced to make his way to Santa Marta and opened a small mexican restaurant.
After two years, his desire to grow both as a chef and entrepreneur made him want to start his new adventure in the Parque de los Novios.
In april of 2011 Ouzo Restuarante and Bar opened its doors in the historic center of Santa Marta.
