Home of the original pina colada and they serve it up in a glass the size of a traditional milkshake - fantastic! Prices are fair, wait staff are happy to take your picture, and they have lovely outdoor seating. Even if you aren't having their famed drink, a great place to have lunch or diner.

Birthplace of the Piña Colada! A casual afternoon gathering of family and friends enjoying piña coladas and food. Our server graciously catered to our needs and requests. She made some great recommendations from the menu and gave us some tips on Old San Juan.

Well after we ended the cruise in San Juan Puerto Rico we walked the streets in Old San Juan, visited the shops, churches and parks ! But we also had dinner at Barrachina and to our delight it was Saturday and the flamenco show was also available for that day so not only we had a great dinner but an... More

We planned to experience true Puerto Rican food as part of our Caribbean cruise; and Barrachina did not disappoint. Tender and succulent shrimp were very plentiful, and the mofungo was amazing. Calamari was so-so, a little overcooked. Highly recommend the shrimp mofungo.

It may have been because it was a holiday, but the restaurant was pretty empty and we still had to wait to be seated. The Pina Colada's were delicious but our appetizers - coconut calamari and garlic shrimp were just OK and not large portions. There are just so many restaurants in the area, I wouldn't come back to eat... More

We had a long wait after disembarking our cruise before our 4pm flight home. We are so glad we took advice to go to Barrachina. They offered luggage storage starting at 9am for a tip. Best money spent. We spent the rest of the morning exploring Old San Juan's beautiful streets and shops. We came back for lunch and had... More
