When in need of a change from the food at your resort, visit Barbacoa. Grade A meat from Canada at a reasonable price. The Chateaubriand is very good for 18 pesos and the langoustine tail is also very tasty. Nice wine selection. Leonel our waiter was awesome and his service was outstanding, ask for him!

We happened on Barbacoa on the last night of our trip when we were sick of resort food. A group of four of us went and the service was spectactular. The waiter was friendly and very patient when we changed our minds several time and he eventually guided us to a surf and turf style meal. We got a round of drinks, garlic bread (yumm!) to start, two very full plates of meat (enough for 2 ppl each) and a half tail of lobster each. The total cost including tip was 25 cuc a person. WELL worth it for the taste, texture, service and atmosphere of Barbacoa. Would gladly eat here again and sorry we didn't find it sooner!
