Awesome food and drinks. I recommend the mojitos and the fish in the Peruvian ají (hot yellow sauce)

I ordered the cazuela and a margarita. It cost a little more than I would have thought for Barranquilla, but the food was excellent and the drink was strong and flavorful. I would definitely recommend.

We were here on a holiday Monday so the place was pretty quiet whoch was nice. Music in the background, not so loud we couldn't hear each other speak. We started with a medium pitcher of sangria which was very good and just enough for two. We started with the grilled octopus which was amazing! It had a slight heat/spice... More

From the delicious seafood to the excellent live music Varadero is one of my favorite places to eat and enjoy a leisurely evening out. The service is usually acceptable although not quite up to the standards of the food and entertainment.

While the restaurant has a Cuban look, music, and theme, the food is more Colombian. We were 8 people and everything we ordered was delicious, excellent quality, on the sophisticated side in taste and presentation. The patacones were thin, crispy and chewy: amazing, the octopus was sublime, whole fried fish had so much flavor. Loved this place.

Wow Colombian food with a Cuban touch. If you're from anywhere like Florida then you know you cannot eat snook at a restaurant. To eat the Robalo which is snook in Spanish you have 7 different ways for to be prepared as a filet. Don't miss it it's a great spot to eat

The food was good, service good but could have been more attentive, the ambiance (Cuban) was outstanding. The themes of the restaurant definately took you back to Cuba and the uniforms the waiters wore further enhanced the ambiance. The offer live Cuban Music after 6pm-

Varadero is a nice restaurant located in downtown Barranquilla (Prado district). The food is not only delicious and genuine, but also has the Colombian taste: I strongly recommend the rice with coconut and shrimps. Important, although the service is very friendly, they are a bit slow. Also note that the prices are in the mid-range segment. The live music gives... More

Great Cuban music 🎶 busy place and food a bit overpriced, servers kept their distance and were not very friendly....The ahí Tuna and the ropa vieja were good, but I've had better elsewhere!
