Tacos & Margs

We’re nacho average restaurant joint…

La Barca Cantina is New York City’s first and only floating Mexican restaurant! With plenty of indoor and outdoor space, come spend time on the only Mexican restaurant in New York that sails on the Hudson River.

Our luxury yacht has an enormous outdoor deck, three bars and two beautiful indoor, temperature-controlled decks plus a killer sound system pumping out Latin pop, salsa and dance hits on all three decks.

Our boat cruises several times a day, allowing guests to eat and drink while taking in the best view in the world: The New York skyline from the Hudson River.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy food & drinks with your besties, have a fun date night, unwind at boozy brunch, host a birthday or even a company party, we can guarantee the celebration will be better on the water!

For Tacos & Tequila!

Conceived in Oaxaca and New York, La Barca Cantina is a modern & fun tribute to the rich culture, history and textures of Mexico.
