Just stopped by for a piña colada. It was definitely very good. Even though we didn’t try the food, it looked appetizing.

We stopped in here recently just to have a Pina Colada. They claim to have invented it and it sure is yummy. They normally have Spanish dancer perform during dinner at night, but as of Feb 2018 and due to all the turmoil the Hurricane Maria caused, they had not yet started it back up. Nice place for good food - I have eaten here many times over the years. One of my favorite PR eateries and especially to listen to the beautiful Spanish music and watch the dancers perform.

A group of us had dinner at Barrachina. The food was very good and the Pina Coladas were delicious. The atmosphere is nice and you may sit either outside in the courtyard or inside in the restaurant. The service is friendly and helpful, but always keep in mind that in Puerto Rico, you are on island time. It's relaxing and not hurried. We enjoyed Barrachina and will definitely return.

We went to the restaurant for dinner with high expectations, but we were disappointed and did not go back. While the pina colada were very good, the mofongo were heavy and covered in a sauce that did nothing to improve the taste. Waiting staff was attentive and sitting in the courtyard was pleasant. The person who seated us led us into an ice-cold dining room and reacted annoyed when we said that this room was too cold, but he then did eat us in the patio.
