I'm very critical with my food in general but this place was amazing. La sopas son delicious. Totally worth it everything on the menu is amazing. I was happy with the service and good and the atmosphere was really cool. You get to take really cute pictures after.

Cucayo is a restaurant that serves typical Barranquilla food. The atmosphere is typical Barranquilla and the food is good. The service is often slow because it is crowded with many families. The problem with this restaurant is everything about it is good except for the prices. They serve food that you can get just about anywhere in the city and they serve it at three times the price. Because of the high prices I have no desire to go there when there are so many other options that are probably more authentic and maybe better within the city. The equivalent would be going someplace in the United States to pay $20 for a hamburger, it just doesn't make sense when there's so many more cheaper good options.

Great place with a fun environment. Typical food from the region! The food is great and worth trying a few different dishes. Be ready to eat lots of fish!

The only bad thing about the place is that it is extremely loud and you can't really have a conversation.

My son is a Professor of English at Universitad del Norte, during a recent visit to his city, he took his sister and me to several local eateries during the four nights we visited. This was one of my favorites, and by far, one of the most colorful.
The entire mood is that of Carnavale, of which celebration in Barranquilla is second only to Rio de Janeiro! One of the two rooms is filled with various masks and costumes, including one of a huge crocodile hanging from the ceiling!
The food was excellent, being one of the seafood cazuelas (stew) for which the area is famous. I enjoyed the evening immensely!
