Sunday find

Where most places in town close between 2&5 , this spot stayed open open Sunday. The bread oil & roasted garlic were amazing . As we're all our food selections, poke, ahi tuna & shrimp grilled.

La Baritaria is located in a Marina called Island Moorings. The marina has a pretty swimming pool which the restaurant overlooks. You must go outside to watch the sunset on the pleasant deck. Fresh mostly-local fish and landlubber options with veggies (sometimes scarce on island!) Fresh bread with olive oil and whole roasted garlic cloves were delightful. Wait staff good... More

El Barataria is a great find in Port Aransas. This restaurant has a great menu and every dish that we tried was delicious! We started with a selection of mixed Mediterranean olives over cocktails and this was a perfect prelude to the excellent meals to come. I selected the sea bass which was beautifully prepared with rice and spinach. My... More

The food is just outstanding. Remember, you are in Port A. It's not a tuxedo wearing waiter town. If you are looking for impeccable service, drive both to San Antonio. Friendly local folks work here and own the place. Don't be in a hurry, ask what is good, and enjoy the excellent food. We had the salmon appetizer, rare tuna... More

It's a small place and when we walked in there was no one else inside which always scares me. The place is decorated in an interesting style - I was a little surprised to see that towels were used as table cloths and napkins. Other than that everything was great!!! I enjoy trying new stuff that's made with some sense... More

Whenever my son and I are on the island, we do not miss a trip to the Island Moorings Marina and La Barataria Restaurant. In the summer it's fun to sit outdoors amongst the palm trees and sip a cool watermelon drink, eating their outrageously delicious garlic bread, while the meal is being prepared. A little pricey, but worth at... More

Not a large place but located in an upscale area. Excellent food, friendly service, Perfect for couples, old friends having dinner or sitting at the bar as a party of one!

You rarely find such an exceptional meal. To start the meal we had escargot with blue cheese. It was beautifully served and simply divine. I had the duck special which was perfectly prepared. My husband had the veal special and was delighted. The cheese plate for dessert had wonderful fruit, and chocolate was a nice compliment. Our server, Sharon, suggested... More

Husband ordered the Eggs Benedict with the Lobster Cake. I ordered the Eggs Florentine with the Lobster Mashed Potatoes. A very generous portion of food - we could have shared 1 plate instead. Mine had "Bacon Bits" which was probably 4-5 pieces of bacon chopped into smaller pieces. Mimosa and Bloody Mary's were great. Service was unremarkable. A view of... More
