Don't get me wrong this is a nice restaurant with an amazing view. But the food is very average. I have been to better restaurants, with cheaper prices and the food was better. I hate to say it but the meat tastes just as good at tgi Fridays then it does here. I wouldn't be rushing back. One tip if... More

Had a reservation for dinner. Went on time but there was no table with St Paul's view. Ask the waiter if it could be arranged and we waited while drinking some beer for around 10 minutes and a new table was there for us. The staff was great, suggested good dishes and wine pairing. I loved the fact that all... More

We visited Barbecoa a few days ago. It is located next to St Paul's cathedral with very nice view. The food was excellent and the service very good. It has a great variety of barbecue options that can please you . Great variety of wines.

Went on a Sunday afternoon without a booking, seated around 4pm. It was a little bit perturbing to be told they needed the table back at 5.30-5.45pm - when throughout the meal the restaurant was not even half full. Also could have given us a better table - one of the small two-person's by the bar even though tons of... More

Went to restaurant as had a lot about it. Pleasant welcome and friendly staff but the rest left a lot to be desired. The info on the website gives dining times of 2 hours for couples and 4 hours for groups. We were in and out within 1 hr 20 and it could have been a lot earlier if we... More

We visited here as part of a romantic getaway to London and, because it was a new Jamie Oliver restaurant, we expected it to be spectacular. We booked a table and were still left sat at the bar 40 minutes after our booked time as our table 'wasn't ready' (even though other couples that arrived after us were seated before).... More

It was our 2nd visit to Barbecoa and it wont be our last! As foodies and yes by our own admission huge Jamie O fans we chose this restaurant over other highly rated steakhouse's in London for my 30th birthday lunch. The food (yet again) was faultless and soooo delicious. Having eaten here previously for dinner (please bring back the... More
