A word from La Barataria
La Barataria is an upscale, casually elegant restaurant and bar, beautifully situated on Mustang Island in Island Moorings Yacht Club and Marina. This Gulf Coast paradise is surrounded by water, yachts and palm trees. Balmy ocean breezes enhance the tranquil setting of this island paradise.

Relax on the upper deck with a view of it all or kick back pool-side with a cocktail made with fresh fruit juices or a glass of vino from our selection of boutique wines.

Secluded yet easily accessible, La Barataria is right off of State Highway 361, across the street from Newport Dunes and Golf, an Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course, and walking distance from Mustang Island Municipal Airport, but we'll pick you up!

Moor your boat at one of the most protected marinas on the Gulf Coast, walk up to the restaurant / bar and find yourself in paradise. You will look no further.

  • "We visited on a Friday night during off season in Port. Aransas. We were seated immediately at a quant table overlooking the pool. We ordered a wonderful cheese plate and two entrees. I had the Lobster Fettucine (which was to die for) and my husband had Lobster cakes. Our meals were excellent and we had enough left over for lunch the next day! We were in and out in about an hour and 15 minutes. Our server was informative and had just the right sense when we might need her. There were some rowdy folks at the bar but they didn't bother us at all. Overall, this was a great way to celebrate my husbands' 52 birthday!"

  • "I don't like to focus on decor too much but the Beach Towels used as table clothes and fiber towels used as Napkins are Very Distracting in a nicely decorated, ship salon style restaurant, those items should be used at a beach bar/grill. I ordered a glass of wine from the list, they no longer stock it, the waitress chose a substitute and seemed irritated that I did not like it. The lobster crab cakes to mushy and breadie the sweet corn was good. Now to the biggest disappointment, Lobster Mashed Potatoes at $15 for 1 cup: dry, potatoe lumpy, actually garlic mashed potatoes with lobster thrown in and the garlic over powdered the lobster I took three bites hoping the taste would improve. I am out of room. Eat outside order simple appetizers."

  • "Great dining experience. Table setting was attractive with lighted candle, table cloth, and harbor view. Wait staff and Hostess were friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was excellent, the bread and garlic/dipping sauce that accompanied our meal was a one of a kind taste experience. I ordered the Spinach salad and the Beef Tenderloin Fillet, and my wife ordered the grilled shrimp as a meal. Wine, Pina Colada, and Coffee were also ordered. One of the very few establishments that offers raw sugar with their coffee! The food presentation was only exceeded by the taste! No wait for our 7 PM Friday night table reservation. Food arrived hot. Nothing but compliments for this establishment."

  • "This was our second time to dine at La Barataria. Again the food was amazing! Even something that you would imagine as simple like carrots are prepared in such a way that you just keep wanting more. I highly recommend the chateaubriand for two. It's quite a feast and an excellent value. The lobster mashed potatoes are to die. Our server was excellent always appearing at just the right moment when we were in need of a wine refresh. The wine list is great, too! Leslie, the owner is so friendly and always makes it a point to come out and say hello to everyone in the restaurant and make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. If you have not tried La Barataria, make the drive. You won't regret it!"

  • "went here for to celebrate an anniversary dinner. it was lovely, quiet, and intimate. the food was delicious; the ribeye was cooked perfectly, and the lobster cake had nice big chunks of lobster meat in it. our waitress was patient, friendly, and helpful, without being too overbearing. it was kind of expensive, but with a yelp deal, it wasn't too bad on the wallet. for a special occasion, the restaurant really met all our expectations."

  • "This is such an amazing gem located in on the water in Port Aransas. We had the chef special dinner for two. 16 oz of filet with lobster mashed potatoes and two sides. All I can say is WOW! The flavors are mind blowing and the steak was prepared and cooked perfectly. The fresh baked bread is delicious. And the bread pudding dessert was outstanding. They also have an excellent wine list. This was my first time there. We live in Houston and I am very familiar with excellent food. I will most definitely be returning and can highly recommend this as a must try place for dinner."
