My family and I visited this place during Carnaval 2017. The decor is very authentic and the food is just awesome . You can't get more Barranquilla than Cucayo.

I have to say I was a bit pessimistic about this place, then it proved me wrong. Local food is amazing, we order several small dishes for sharing and all was good. Ice cold beer. Reasonable price. Nice Latin music and fantastic service.
