Social Diner

We will enjoy a special evening at one of the most iconic restaurants in Barranquilla, thanks to its role on the local and national cultural history: Restaurante La Cueva.

In addition to the specially selected menu, the evening will be enlivened by a delightful live music group. A short video about the history of the restaurant and the life around it will be shown on a separate room for those interested.

The diner will include: a cup of wine, shrimp cocktail, the main dish (fish, rice and veggies), a soft drink and a dessert. The cost of this is COP$85.000 (US$25.00), to be paid in cash when registering.
