The pina colada is deliciously creamy. We dined on grouper and stuffed pork loin. The food was good but the pork was not as described on the menu. Dessert choices were limited but the rum cake was very good. Our server was excellent, very attentive.

We went here due to the fact of it being on Travel Channel and Anthony Bourdain recommending it. We had the famous Pina Colada. I thought they were good but not amazing, my husband really liked them. Then we had the beef, chicken and shrimp Mofongo. It was REALLY REALLY good. We want to go back just for that. If I could have licked the plate I would have lol. The service was good too!

It is a little pricey though. $22 for a plate. We shared... it was enough food.

We enjoyed our evening at Barrachina. Drinks were awesome! Piña Colda, and frozen Mojito with a Pasoa floater were the best to be had in Puerto Rico! Food was very tasty too! Flamenco dancing was a huge bonus.

The food was really just awful. I had slimy grouper and my husband had the $25 flank steak that tasted like something out if a can. Atmosphere was good thou. Just get drinks if you go.
