He was easy to understand, gave us some history, and was just pleasant in general. A lot of us has fajitas and mine... More

This place has great authentic Puerto Rican food. The mofongo is excellent. The service was exceptional and the prices are fair. They are known for their Pina Coladas. I highly recommend Barrachina!

I watched the local weather and saw the Parrot drinking Pina Colada's with the weather guy. After seeing the commercial a few times I decided I had to go. I had been in Puerto Rico for 5 days and hadn't had a pina colada yet, I made up for it all in one meal!!!! They were great!!!
