I stopped in with my girl friend to have a some beers and hopefully a nice meal. The beers were nice and ice cold. We ordered a lobster turnover which was not the best but it was still edible. We also ordered some fish nuggets and it turned out that the it wasn't the freshest fish the batter did not... More

We stopped in for a beer and a snack one midweek early afternoon with no expectations for fast service or good food. All we wanted were a few cold ones and to enjoy the view and the breeze on a hot, sunny day. The appetizers were standard fare and yes, the service was slow, but who cares? The beers arrive,... More

The food was amazing, the service was not that bad and I love the view. Best sea restaurant in Salinas and the price is not bad at all.

The service was horrible, it took like 1 1/2 hour to serve the food and it was cold and had no good taste.if you want to punish yourself you have to go there.

If you are on the south coast of Puerto Rico near Ponce take a slight detour to the small seaside town of Salinas and look for this restaurant right on the water. Must try the stuffed tostones with seafood, crabs or lobster. This is an open air restaurant that gets packed on the weekends. Schools of tarpon swim freely near... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant at the beginning of October 2012, while on vacation in San Juan. The food, drinks and service were excellent. Try the red snapper fish with sauce and onions. It is delicious!

I noticed a "vendemos sangría" sign, wich I wanted to try. Incredibly, there was no sangría... I wanted to eat, but the mess they had made me leave asap!

I took my husband to my Island and I wanted him to taste authentic Puerto Rican seafood so we went to La Barca. The place is not impressive in appearance but the food is great! I have red snapper "al ajillo" and I still can taste it because it was a perfect blend of spices and garlic. My whole family... More

I usually visit different places to dine because I don't like to repeat restaurants. For many years this restaurant has been very popular in Puerto Rico and I had wanted to eat a seafood salad with octopus and conch meat "carrucho" and thought this was a good choice to change the routine of the Metropolitan Area (San Juan, Isla Verde,...
