“Fun place, easily accessible”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Barú is right on the Parque Central and has outdoor as well as indoor seating. My sisters and I watched the 2013 Super Bowl inside and had a fun time. When you order from the menu, don't hesitate to ask questions about what you want-everything we had was great, but there will always be a local twist on things like chicken wings or nachos (mozarella cheese instead of cheddar, for example). But it was all good and the drinks were well-poured.

“Probably the best place in town.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Good location, nice to sit outside. Very good waiters here, service is positively slick. The food is good also, although on the pricey side.

“What's not to like?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Service, prices and quality of the food served is top notch for a pub bar. This place is just AWESOME! The live band is rock n' roll nirvana.

We have enjoyed the food here twice, very good each time. WE met many people from all over the world, it is a fine place to have a cold beer too.

“Gringo food at gringo prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Good bar on the main square. Food is pretty standard. Service is polite and efficient. There aren't that many options in town and this is as good as any others.
