We ate at this place on our second last day. It is at the beginning of the varadero strip at Calle 64. The food was very good. We both had a steak with coleslaw, mashed potato and rice and a hot red pepper. They make an amazing daiquiri as well. The biggest treat was being serenaded by a 4 person... More

Visited the Barbacoa in April 2017 and enjoyed my visit there. Service was fast and friendly. We both ordered the Sirloin Chateaubriand, it was delicious. The steak was tender and cooked perfectly (medium). Not much else on the plate, but the steak was big enough to fill us. The atmosphere was relaxing, with a band playing in the background. We...

We were reffered to this restaurant by friends, and it did not deceive. The food was great from the shrimp cocktail, to the size of the lobster. My friends had steak, they even had prime beef from Canada. I seriously recommend this if you visit Varadero

Heard a brief referral that the Barbacoa was a good place to eat. We were close, so we walked over one evening. The restaurant was full and the wait was expected to be over an hour, but the maitre d', Roberto, set up a table for the three of us right away and we were served a fantastic seafood meal!... More

Great steak, t-bone and New York, add fries for $2, great staff, entertainment and service. By far best steak in Varadero. Love this place, we stay at an all inclusive yet busy this restaurant four times during our two week stay. Not a sea food lover however lobster looks very enticing, steak is great!

Decided on a break from A/I so booked in advance for a special occasion. Restaurant was busy but our table was reserved. Wife ordered Chateaubriand and I chose New York strip as this is a specialist steak house. Both steaks ordered medium and we waited with a nice bottle of red. Meals arrived, wifes was ok but not very hot... More
