Went for dinner here one night. Starters were lovely, chicken was very tender although the beef my wife had was a little tough. Liqueurs were lovely. Had a great feel to it and would return if in the area again

We went here for a romantic dinner while the grandparents babysat :) Excellent value for money @ roughly £15 a head for the food, including sides and coffee. The food was superb, well presented, fresh and far better than anything triple the price in England. We got chatting to the owner and the restaurant has a fascinating history and inside... More

I had a lovely steak with a very tasty peppercorn sauce. I also had a lovely dessert. The waiter was a bit 'cold' at first but he was more friendly towards the end of the meal. It had a nice atmosphere and I would come back here again.

Barbacoa is great when you are dying for a nice steak/filet in the carribean, BUT every year we go, we find that the service is SLOWER and the waiters aren't as friendly. If you are in no rush, or don't care about service, the MEAT is PHENOMINAL!!!

This is a nice restaurant, located between the Starfish Quatros palmas and the Barceló Arenas Blanca. I would recommend it as one of the top 10, but there are better places to eat in varadero. The Langosta is always good, problem here is their Langosta is sometimes small.

Came here for lunch 3 times during my stay in Varadero. The steaks they make are top notch quality, the cheapest steak there cost 12CUC yet tasted significantly better than a steak twice that price back home. Also had a steak/lobster combo for 29CUC which was much better than anything you could get at Red Lobster! If you stay in... More
