“Great place to eat seafood in Barranquilla”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I have been there a couple of times and the food is always excellent. They have a great variety of seafood dishes, and some very interesting rices.
The options for fish and seafood are very good, and there is a small part of the menu with some meats and chicken.
The appetizers are also amazing, specially the Patacones with shrimp,
On weekends they also have live music, "cuban" music, but when they do you have to be careful where you sit because when the band is playing you might not be able to chat with the other members of your party. They should consider adjusting the volume. that might be my only complaint.

“Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012 via mobile

Delicious! Nice decor. Realist with 3 business American colleagues (I'm Clombian) who each ordered a different entree and they were each very pleased! It was so good we went back again before we left Barranquilla. M

“A great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2012

Is sometimes hard to find good, well cooked seafood, even in a coastal city, but luckily there is Varadero.
The food was great, beautiful presentation, good size portions and the most important, delicious flavours.
The place is very nice, very "tropical" and the service was also really good.
Some people can say is a bit expensive, but, you definitely get what you are paying for.
Recommended.
