You have to be patient to eat here. The service is as slow as molasses in January. Slow even in Cuban standards. The food is always good however. Try the Canadian Beef. The best house soup in Varadero.

Been past this restaurant for the last 13 years but never stopped in, until now, invited our Cuban friends along, everything was great, food, drinks, service and atmosphere, Barbacoa deserves a return

This restaurant was okay. Went here for the lobster. The taste of the meal was just okay. Staff was just okay. We wished we had gone to the Barracuda or El Bodega that was suggested by other vacationers. Now we've at least tried it.

Really worth a visit. Varied menu, friendly staff and it wasn't even expensive. A super getaway from the all-inclusive buffet, which lost some of it's allure after a couple of days.

When in need of a change from the food at your resort, visit Barbacoa. Grade A meat from Canada at a reasonable price. The Chateaubriand is very good for 18 pesos and the langoustine tail is also very tasty. Nice wine selection. Leonel our waiter...More

You do not need to reserve but it can get busy and fill up fast as it does not have a lot of tables. It is a great restaurant and the prices are reasonable. We really enjoyed it. Have fun!

Cuts are the Cuban currency for tourists. You need to pay for everything this way. The exchange rate coincides with the American rate, which means that you will currently pay about 1.30 for 1 CUC. Money can be exchanged... More
