“Yummy food and pretty good piña coladas too!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I had a mofongo with bistec. It was yummy. Not my Grandma's, but close enough. Side order of beans were excellent. Piña colada was very sweet but good. Pricey but worth it for a taste of the island close to the port.

“What A Restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

My first trip to Brrachina was in 1964 shortly after the bar tender invented the Pina Colada. I never heard of a Pina Colada or tasted the drink until that night. What a drink it is. The bar tender is no longer at the restaurant but the Pina Coladas are the best.

The last time I was at Barrachina was in 1966 and the Pina Coladas were still great.

I waited 47 years to return to Barrachina to have the paella. The paella is excellent and is one of five dishes the restaurant prides itself in preparing. I was not disappointed after waiting the 47 years.

We went on a Friday night to attend the flamenco show during our dinner. There is no charge for the show if you request reservations on Friday or Saturday between 8:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. The show just adds to the experience of the evening. The dancing is excellent.

Do visit Barrachina and order the paella with a Pina colada and enjoy the flamenco show. This restaurant is not to be missed..

“best pina colada!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

My husband and I went to Barrachina for the pina coladas- so delicious. It was a great place to sit at the bar and relax while in a beautiful location. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
