Delicious!!!

My daughter and I visited Barrachina's on the first night of our trip to Puerto Rico in search of authentic Puerto Rican food. The fact that Piña Coladas were invented her was an added bonus! We both had the mofungo, my daughter had steak and I had the combo, with steak, shrimp and chicken. The... read more

Planned to find this place when we visited Old San Juan on our cruise. After a long hot walk from the Fort to the town we were ready for a frosty drink and it didn't disappoint. Found a seat at the bar and had great service. A lively restaurant where people appeared to be enjoying the food and atmosphere. Worth... More

Yes, the Piña Colada was good but the frozen Mojito was REALLY good and very refreshing after a long day of walking around Old San Juan. The fact that the PC was invented here is a huge draw for tourists and it makes the bar a lively place. Most people came and went after one drink. A big plus for... More

Stumbled upon this when out in Old San Juan the venue itself is outstanding and really looks wow however the service was average . Despite other reviews I did not think that the Pina Colada was that amazing. Perhaps due to the reviews I was expecting something better. The food was ok again with the great surroundings I expected to... More

Try the piña colada, you won't be sorry! It was nice and creamy like a milkshake. The frozen mojito was excellent as well - the mint was very refreshing with a slash of red passionfruit liquor to top it off!

So happy with the service here and food. They claim to be home of my favorite drink, The Piña Colada, which was Awesome!! Visited twice in the 3-days we were there. Great staff, very nice and welcoming. Will definitely return and recommend to anyone.

Went here a couple of nights ago because some friends came from the U.S. and wanted to try it; it was everyone's (including myself) first time. We were given the option to sit indoors with a/c or outside and preferred outside. We went at night time and it was a beautiful vibe. It's a very nice patio with nice lights.... More

During a recent business trip to San Juan, PR our coordinator planned a lunch at this local favorite following a guided tour of Old San Juan and the Castillo de Colon. What an absolutely wonderful venue to end our tour after walking through the picturesque streets of this beloved city. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff who... More
