My favorite restaurant when visiting Barranquilla. I hadn't been for a few years until this recent visit. The live music is still great and the food still makes your mouth water. The outdoor patio is always great especially when the band is playing. When in Barranquilla make sure you try this seafood. You will want to come back.

The environment is charming at this restaurant, we felt like being in Cuba but better. The food was tasty. The music was nice and overall was a good night.

Been here many times and always a pleasant experience, service us great, food is awesome. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for good seafood in Barranquilla. Favorite plates are Mixto Varadero (little bit of everything, civiche, shrimp, and more) and moros con cristianos al estilo varadero (rice and black beans mixed with seafood).

It is a cuban-like restaurant with the local touch of Barranquilla cuisine. Good combination of good food, music and good service

Cuban good does not have a reputation for being refined. This place does the best it can with it. Portions are generous and service attentive. The best thing is the live music. We got there too early so missed much of it as my colleague and I had to leave for a meeting.

Had my 50th birthday function here. Great food, great service, atmosphere was absolutely awesome. Want to feel like you dining out in Cuba. This is definitely the place to go. Decor, music all adds to perfect.
