I think that I have been in most of the seafood restaurants along the Colombian coast from Panama to Venezuela but though I first came to Barranquilla in 1985, I have never been able to find much here. So I followed the advice of some of the reviewers and went to the Veradero. I speak quite good Spanish. I had... More

We were in late dinner in Varadero and it was a pleasant visit. Place interior and atmosphere is wonderful and staff is very friendly. Price vs. Quality is Ultimate. Please remember also taste excellent Mojitos what they have here. This is a world class restaurant which would be a great success if located example in Miami.

Just visited Friday, October 12, 2012. Must say I was impressed. Food very good, with very "Cuban sized portions." Ambiance, excellent with life Cuban/Latin music. Patrons with wide range from 20's to seniors, but very middle-upper class crowd. Location in a very safe part of Barranquilla, easy access. Resevations recommended if you want to seat in area where life music... More

I have been there a couple of times and the food is always excellent. They have a great variety of seafood dishes, and some very interesting rices. The options for fish and seafood are very good, and there is a small part of the menu with some meats and chicken. The appetizers are also amazing, specially the Patacones with shrimp,... More

Delicious! Nice decor. Realist with 3 business American colleagues (I'm Clombian) who each ordered a different entree and they were each very pleased! It was so good we went back again before we left Barranquilla. M

Is sometimes hard to find good, well cooked seafood, even in a coastal city, but luckily there is Varadero. The food was great, beautiful presentation, good size portions and the most important, delicious flavours. The place is very nice, very "tropical" and the service was also really good. Some people can say is a bit expensive, but, you definitely get... More
