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.

We wanted to try a new place this Sunday, and went here with no expectations. Nice location in the Marina just outside of Port Aransas (next to the airport). Wait staff very friendly and attentive, and not overbearing. But we like more traditional food. The French Toast was definitely unusual - on a roll and a little chewy. The herb... More

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

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
