Barrio Ghirardelli Square


900 North Point Suite J101, San Francisco
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Want to feel like a glorious eagle perched on top of the city? Barrio in Ghirardelli Square is where you can do just that (minus any Animorphs-style eagle transformation). The second location of the Latin American fusion restaurant in North Beach overlooks the view of the entire bay from a large, sun-lit rotunda (there’s also a big brick patio next to it). So whatever reason you have to be in the area mingling with tourists, Barrio makes a very pleasant home base.  

Unlike the North Beach location, which is much smaller and serves only beer and wine, this spot makes strong margaritas, highballs and spritzes, and pitchers of palomas. The food is Mexican-inspired, which they serve all day, like blue corn tacos, burritos, nachos topped with cochinita pibil, and chicharrones. They’re all solid, but nothing revolutionary. The best use of this spot is to order a margarita pitcher, some guacamole and chips to snack on, and enjoy the views from up high.
