By far one of the best experiences we have ever had at a restaurant altogether!! The staff is so friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had not only an awesome time but an awesome meal. I promise this restaurant does not disappoint and blows Richies out of the water! MOST GO!!!

“Incredible food in a casual (but classy) river-side location that is perfect for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

It's been a long time since I've enjoyed such a good meal. Barbakoa offers wonderful flavor combinations and excellent service. Our family shared yucca balls, barbecued ribs, yucca stuffed pork loin, rice with sausage, and fried sweet potatoes. Everything was delicious, with incredible sauces that perfectly complemented the food. Kids can play along the river while you wait for your meal. Lovely setting. Tranquil & classy, but not pretentious.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

On the way to El Yunque we found this restaurant barbakoa,,at first do not look like much from the outside until you walk behind the front stairs and is a different world the river just steps away from where you are sitting was great, relaxing and the food was excellent the best we had since our arrival in Puerto Rico ,,, the ribs are the best we had,,and the pork with an type of rum sauce that was excellent the yuquitas were great anyway every inch of my plate was worth it !!!! You will love it the service is also great the prices really reasonable comparing with many others I give Barbakoa 10 stars.
