Recommend by our concierge as a place to dine in Old San Juan - which is very beautiful - but I think the only diners were other tourists. The server was nice but felt very rushed. The food was reasonably priced but average at best. The same for the ambiance. I would not got back.

Dining outside in the courtyard near the bar was noisy and a little too warm for us, but the food was fabulous! We enjoyed their combination platter featuring pork, beef and chicken. It was a huge amount of food that none of us could finish. The value for what you get was definitely worth the price. The Pina Coladas are... More

The piña coladas did not disappoint! Will be back for more the next time we are in San Juan! Usually the home of claims fall short in our experience but not this time. Enjoy!

A great place to stop while visiting Old San Juan. Many food and drink items. Excellent Pina Colada's, Mofongo was tasty. Nice atmosphere to relax and take a break while exploring the city.

Stopped in for my one and only pina colada of the trip. They claim to have originated it here. It's pretty good, but not that different from any other pina colada. That being said, it is a nice bare with good service. Try to ignore the screeching of the parrots.

If you are visiting Old San Juan, you have to stop by here and have one or many original Pina Colidas. The bartender was the most knowledgeable people I have met on the different rums.

We were staying in Old San Juan pre cruise and we decided upon Barrachina for dinner. Among it's claims to fame is it is the birthplace of the Pina Colada. This restaurant has a central courtyard and two air conditioned dining rooms to either side. The ambiance was charming and the menu was extensive. Our group had members that ordered... More

We had dinner in the open courtyard. The setting was lovely. The pina colada was all that you would expect from the "original", The food was mediocre.

We've spent many winter weeks in PR, and one of the first things on our list, is get to old San Juan and Barrachina's. Why? the Pina Coladas, excellent food and service, and the "I'm on vacation" feel. Jorge still runs the bar, and is such an interesting character. This year though, and only because I needed to venture to... More

Came In San Juan on a cruise and decided to check this spot out for the sake of its popularity. It is an easy walking distance from the port..had to ask a few questions but found it pretty easy once you bare left from the cruise port. Once we got there, I can't say it was a disappointment. Had to... More
