An excellent place for a festive meal with friends and family. Good quality of food and drinks. A good group of musicians will entertain you during the meal.

Ate at this joint recently because it was steps away from the Barranquilla Plaza hotel and it was getting late... nice décor, live Cuban Music, and supposedly Cuban food fare... most of which my colleague had never heard of, having lived in Cuba for 5 years.... anyway..i ordered the stone crabs with visions of fresh nicely buttered steamed Crab legs,...

Great food. A little on the pricey side, about $20 for a plate plus drink and tip which is expensive for the city. But the place delivers what you are being charged for.

I ate there with a friend and although the food was good and it had a great atmosphere. I felt like it was too much to pay for Barranquilla.

Mashed potatoes with shellfish?? Food is over-salted. Mediocre preparation and service at the leisure of the server. Not much to recommend. Chocolate pastry dessert was good....best part of the meal.

Not the cheapest place but very good seafood. The langostinos were very nice. Service could be a bit better, or maybe the fiesta had taken its toll on the staf

Barranquilla is probably a *surprise* for anyone who a) has never visited this city or b) hasn't been there in a while. And somehow Varadero seems to capture "everything Barranquilla:" Ample spaces; friendly staff; Caribbean (relaxed) feel; Exotic aromas and ingredients; and a little something that can't be described in words...(maybe a feel of Varadero, Cuba, where I *haven't* been?)...

The place itself is out of this world, great service, great location, great food, everything is great. They have band-live performance on the weekends, this place is unique. The dishes are generous and their speciality is seafood, you must go to this place.
