“Eat here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We ate at the Barracuda twice during our stay in Cuba! We loved it. I am a chef and VERY picky about what I eat and it got the thumbs up from me.
The driver of our horse and buggy ride told us to eat there.
Had a great Mojito too!
The washroom is a bit "dated" bring your own toilet paper, girls ;)
DON'T FORGET TO TIP!

Have eaten the lobster and chicken lunch here and it was delicious. Fantastic view of the beach/ocean. The prices are very reasonable.

“Best in Varadero”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Four of us went here in the first week whilst on holiday and enjoyed it so much we went back the second week. Entrance doesnt look much from the road as you pass through a dive school but soon you see the restaurant and its lovely setting overlooking the beach and sea. We all went for the surf and turf special on the menu at 20cuc's about £13. Excellent lobster tail covered with plenty of fresh prawns, beautiful steak and nice rice, salad and potatoes. Friendly staff and all food cooked in an open kitchen you can see. Of all the restaurants we went to in Varadero this was by far the best.
