What wonderful setting for lunch or dinner. We loved the enclosed patio...it was so beautiful. Of course, the patio was packed and we had to sit just inside at a table. It was 130PM and they were still packed. I enjoyed wonderful service and my pina colada was worth the trip from Miami!

This place had everything! Service, food, ambiance, the works! The manager treated us like royalty and even let us taste the famous Pina Coladas before we ordered one!

Barrachina has average food, with fine dining prices & coffee shop casual service. Seemed very family oriented, lots of kids when we were there. Bustling, noisy, high volume. Flamico dancers were slightly entertaining. Lower your expectations and you may enjoy it.

Barrachina was recommended by the server at another restaurant when we asked for seafood. We were pleasantly surprised. The whole fried snapper with rice and beans was spectacular, but the mafundo with seafood/ chicken and beef was knock-your-socks-off. Mario's service was terrific, and the world famous pina colada was up to its reputation.

Barracking was recommended to us by a local policeman. Absolutely a fantastic recommendation. The food was outstanding. This restaurant invented the Pina Colada in 1963 and still makes a fabulous one. The frozen Mojito is not to be missed either. This award winning drink was the creation of Gorge, a superb bar tender at Barrachina. Can not wait to my... More

Great place to stop i for a drink or a meal if you are in Old San Juan. I love the typical San Juan atmosphere and the parrot. It is a must see!
