I had the amazing experience of getting to eat here with a group of people who let me try their dishes. I didnt eat a single thing that didnt make me want to steal the plate from people i did t know well enough to actually do that. English menus available, staff very friendly. Well worth it,

I've eaten at all the top spots in barranquilla and this is, imo, the best food I've had in the 7 months I've been in Colombia. Moderately priced, great atmosphere, great drinks and a fanatic menu full of delicious food!

Coming from Florida, it's not the most authentic Cuban place you'll ever go to, but it's definitely the best in Barranquilla. The environment is excellent, the service is good, the food is high quality, and the live entertainment is a lovely bonus.

The patacones rellenos are the best. Live music is excellent and proper for the ambiance. This is a place that I will come back no doubt.

The food here is good, I had the signature dish of fried fish which was pretty tasty on the whole. The service I was not pleased with. We asked for a table outside, which they were clearly not happy about. They said there were mosquitos outside (not true). They reluctantly gave us a table finally on the nice terraza. I... More

It's a pretty little restaurant. The service is very good, the food is delicious. You get more for than you pay. The ambience is cozy, the music is great and anyway is a very good option if you are in Barranquilla.

Best seafood restaurant in town! Food was delicious and the live music made it even more memorable! Some staff were most attentive but some also weren't.
