Had to try the a pina colada in the bar that created them. By far the best ones we have had on the island.

We stayed in PR for three nights, and ate a Barrachina's for two of those nights. Their seafood paella is delicious ($44 for two), with a lobster tail. When you order the Pina Colada, make sure they use the dark rum, much better! Oh, and the Grouper fritter appetizer was out of this world!!!

Stopped in at the bar to try the original pina colada. Service was fabulous. Great drink. Bartender asked US if he could take a picture of us with our pina coladas. Did not try the restaurant.

Went for the famous pina colada and at 8 dollars each they were delicious and excellent value. Well worth trying when in San Juan.

Went for lunch with my son and a group of high school students visiting from the US. For a very reasonable price and very little wait you can try local food.

The restaurant is very modern and chic. The flare is there. However it is so cold inside you can hardly enjoy your meal.the chips and guacamole were fantastic. The quesadilla was quite large but soggy. The shrimp was way over cooked! The prices were ridiculous .

Hello Sherlene!! The restaurant you review in here is not Barrachina Restaurant because we do not have Chips and Guacamole in our menu nor Quesadilla either.

This place was highly recommended by friends, so we made reservations three days before arriving (you need to for a Friday or Saturday night) and only because we wanted to see the flamenco show, if you have children request front sitting.

We visited Barrachina on the recommendation of my brother who had been there more than once. He actually recommended it for breakfast, but our schedule limited us to dinner. I'm so glad we went! While the greeter was not very good at her job, our interaction with her was minimal and wasn't so horrible to cause me to lower the... More
