“Good Barranquilla Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

My boyfriend's family took me here my first night that I was in Barranquilla and it was definitely a good choice. There's lots of cool history and you get to see and know a lot. The food was really good, but it's the history and atmosphere that are worth a visit!

“The BEST place to be in Barranquilla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Very gentle people working in this piece of culture of Colombia. Food is great, very well served, abundant and cheap compared to European or North American standards. One fish entry, 2 main dishes and 4 beers, 70000 pesos, almost 35 dollars. During dinner an orchestra has been playing typical carnival music live. People dancing everywhere. Alicia Padilla a lovely hostess will welcome you in the typical caribbean style, she speaks several languages, including a good Italian, (I was surprised). The barman, Fernando will show you the movie in English or Spanish about the story of this 60 years old place. Paintings by Colombian famous artists are all over and lots of anecdotes about this great place. I go once a week to enjoy what best Barranquilla can offer you. Don't miss the occasion to go.

“Eaten here several times.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

If you are a fan of literature then this is the place to go. Garcia Marquis, One Hundred Years of Solitude won the Nobel prize. The food is good also.

“Good music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

A medium size restaurant with live music, we just had wine so cannot comment on the food. We arrived to late to eat something since the kitchen closes at 10PM. The area where it is located used to be a good one but is not the best nowadays.

“Garcia-Marquez Admirer? Come here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Such a fun visit to La Cueva, hangout for Gabriel Garcia-Marquez and many of his lierary/artistic group. Food is fine, atmosphere is wonderful. I am so glad I went.
