Very expensive. The Filipina waitress is quite nice, but her husband (a foreigner) is not nice at all. The food is okay, but nothing special. Everything is expensive, and you have to pay for everything. I just asked for bread (because they had a sign saying that their home-bread was amazing), and the guy just came and asked me "do... More

Definitely worth a look.. Quirky building. Delicious cajun style fish. There's probably cheaper food around but this is a worthwhile treat.

I had the food here a few times now and more and more delicious as i thought so far!! We'd tried me and my friends couldn't even better than here in Jambalaya. For the other we've tried so far it's even more worst and not good quality. Jambalaya is small place but full of Special food coming from Louisiana and... More

Coldest beer at Port Barton! Try their sandwiches and Fish Special, fairly good! The shakes are also delish. Price a bit higher than other restaurants but food is really delicious. Dined here twice during our stay at Port Barton. Had a little chat with the nice owner. Restaurant interior is really small, lots of words of wisdom hanging around. Some... More

So worth the extra pesos for the finest of ingredients. When you travel to such a remote location and find such fine foods, what a treat!!!! Then add the staff and their unbiased reviews of life in Pt Barton, well now you have a true vacation. There are other fine food establishments in Pt Barton, but quality of ingredients, service,...

Food here is very good, and the portions are big too. To achieve this though the menu is small and expensive too. I'd recommend the 'pastalaya.' It's a slight tourist trap. But beer is cheap (p50) and it has a great view.
