Puerto Rican
Located in Old San Juan, just one block from La Fortaleza (the Governor’s Mansion) Barrachina restaurant has been catering to tourist and locals for over 40 years in the old city. The surrounding beauty of a colonial building over two centuries old with an interior courtyard and magnificent tropical foliage is the birthplace and home of the world famous piña colada, where don Ramon Portas Mingot, first made the famous drink in 1963. A visit to San Juan is not complete without Barrachina.

For reservations for the Flamenco show on Friday and Saturday evenings, please contact the restaurant directly.

    You accepted and confirmed a reservation for a restaurant that was closed. Terrible.

    The waiter I had wasn't friendly. We had to track him down to get service and any additional questions we asked seemed like a bother to him. He never refilled our glasses or checked on us. I was missing food from my meal and when I shared it with him, he offered a dry apology. He never rectified the issue. I will say he had a large party, so his frustrations may not have been to me alone.

    We booked specifically due to birthplace of pina colada but found it average. Also odd that burgers and wraps could be ordered after 5 pm off the kids menus for adults with seafood allergies but could not be ordered off the main menu. We'd previewed the menu prior to booking but didn't see the fine print regarding burgers, wraps and sandwiches. Everything else was great!

    Great atmosphere, food was great and the piña coladas were amazing. If you are not into the tourists scene, this place is not for you.

    I was a party of 4 that had dinner at Barrachina. Appetizer was very good. Food was good. Service was quite good; server was very attentive and food came quick. This restaurant is considered the creator of the pina colada. Of course we ordered, but it was flat, not thick. Good value for the amount of food purchased. Atmosphere was better for a casual lunch rather than upscale for dinner. I still recommend if you are spending the day in Old San Juan.

    Loved the atmosphere and drinks here! The Plantain Boat was delicious, but Mahi Mahi was very tough.

    Excellent food at a good price and ambience/setting was the best we’ve had in PR—request to sit outside on your reservation. Staff were slightly disjointed on this evening and disorganized but did express condolences and were giving an honest and good effort.
