Pretty good, but times have changed

I'm a Puerto Rico native who has been eating at La Barca for decades. My parents even ate there when they were young. But times have changed. We recently ate there on a Friday, and expected the place to be filled. It was nearly empty. The service is a bit on the average side, and the although... read more

Stopped off here for a quick bite to eat - outdoor terrace / seating area fronts right onto the water so can't get a better location looking straight out on the Marina and bay. Food was good, typical Puerto Rican - they seem to want to serve fish with sauce not matter what! Overall definitely good mid-level restaurant, value for... More

We come here because we want local seafood. The wait was ridiculous and the food was low quality. I ordered a whole lobster (charged by pound) and was so so, they fill part of my lobster with “mofongo” (that I don’t ordered) that was uncooked and I think that they remove some of my lobster to cook other plate that...

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,...

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.
