Barranquilla is probably a *surprise* for anyone who a) has never visited this city or b) hasn't been there in a while. And somehow Varadero seems to capture "everything Barranquilla:" Ample spaces; friendly staff; Caribbean (relaxed) feel; Exotic aromas and ingredients; and a little something that can't be described in words...(maybe a feel of Varadero, Cuba, where I *haven't* been?)...

The place itself is out of this world, great service, great location, great food, everything is great. They have band-live performance on the weekends, this place is unique. The dishes are generous and their speciality is seafood, you must go to this place.

Varadero is a very nice restaurant! If you want a romantic place with nice food, go to varadero. If you want a restaurant with music and beautiful people, go to varadero! The restaurant has this environment that welcomes everyone, no matter what you are looking for. And the dishes are great!

Very poor service, food is barely acceptable, the left hand does not know what the right is doing, and , after having waited for my coke and asking 3 different waiters for it, I got charged for 3. They would go to the computer, put in the order, and not bring the coke. I finally got it when I had... More

The food is average and expensive (25 USD). The service is awful. The people that usually goes to this restaurant are ugly. Therefore, do not go there with your lady. Definitely, not a special place.

We enjoyed our appetizers and entrees. The live Cuban band is very pleasant. However, on more than one occasion we have had to reject bottles of wine there ( tasted like vinegar). I wonder if they have improper wine storage. I would return there, but drink beer or mojitos instead.

Saw the top rating of this place on TA while in town for Carnaval and after eating lots of unhealthy parade fare for two days, we decided to head to the northern, leafy section of the city and try this out. Got seated on the patio which was pleasant. Got drink menus first but no food menus. You know, restaurant... More
