Visited Barbakoa during our trip to Puerto Rico twice, and both times we were very pleased with everything! The owners take personally care of you, they are really nice people and they WANT you to be pleased with what you get for your money. Prices for main courses were around 15-18USD ,huge portions. Also we had some nice coctails there, try the Mojito, and there was another one, with Melon and Lime, forgot the name, but very tasty.
The best about the place however is the location! You cant miss it on your way from/to the rainforest, and it is beautifully set near a little river. Be aware that they open only afternoon/early evening, I think 14.00 to 19.00 or so, and try to go there Saturday or Sunday when they have great Live Music!

We stopped for lunch after a hike in the El Yunque. Outdoor seating near the river, wait staff helpful. Meals were in the $12 - 20 range. We ordered a meal and an empanada-like turnover filled with beef and sweet plantains and shared. The turnover was excellent, the meal was good (we had the mofonguitos as the side.)

We stopped after a trip to El Yunque with the family. What a lovely spot beside the river. We stopped for a snack and a drink. It was great, would highly recommend it after a hike in the rain forest.

Probably the best food we found in PR. In addition nice service and perfect view. If you plan to go to rain forest you should really stop there for lunch/dinner on your way back.

Perfect restaurant for the whole family! If u want a unique culinary experience this is the place for u ! It has a wonderful view of the river and great outdoor service. I had a pleasant time enjoying live music and watching lizards and birds in their natural environment. I read the comment on not having the drinks on glass; dude if u dint notice this is an "outdoor/rustic" restaurant. Stay on the hotel if u want fine dinning. Recommend this restaurant to all of u that like new getaway! Prices are reasonable and is just steps from el Yunque rain forest.
