If you have read One Hundred Years of Solitude or even if you have heard or realismo magico, visiting La Cueva is a must. I am from Barranquilla but immigrated in the 80's to the US. I knew about La Cueva as someone who have read the story of Garcia Marquez but never have been there until now. For me,... More

If you are a tourist in Barranquilla, this place should be one of your stops. Good food and drinks, plus the staff will show you a video of the history of this iconic place.

We went on a Saturday for lunch and since we were early in arriving for the lunch hour, our waiter gave us a historical account of the restaurant and we were shown pictures and a short film on the historical aspects of the place. The food was excellent. It is also interesting to note that on Fridays and Saturdays there... More

I loved this restaurant. It is full of character and so many stories associated with its literary clientele that it has created its own museum and film. Great food and service - strongly recommended.

A very nice restaurant with a very friendly staff and a great welcoming. The food is good but not so sophisticated ! It's like a nice place with a very good atmosphere with live music and laugh in a "museum" decor.

My boyfriend's family took me here my first night that I was in Barranquilla and it was definitely a good choice. There's lots of cool history and you get to see and know a lot. The food was really good, but it's the history and atmosphere that are worth a visit!
