Our first visit to Barbecoa and a special meal to celebrate our Sons 18th birthday. Atmosphere, food, and service all first class. Staff very attentive and helpful. Also one of the first restaurants we have visited where we felt they took our sons nut allergy seriously. Once they were made aware of his allergy they took the time to advise... More

Great location, great welcome, great service, wonderful food. Lunch. Warmly and professionally greeted. Great table with the view towards St Paul's Cathedral. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of champagne with some pickles and pork scratchings. These were excellent: the pickles had been fried in a tempura-like batter and were nicely executed. The pork scratchings were serious beasts! A sirloin... More

My parter and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. It was a lovely experience. We were able to get a reservation on the Saturday morning for that evening, however it was a 9.45pm reservation (this was completely acceptable as this allowed us a full day of activities in London). The staff were extremely attentive and showed us... More

This place felt really warm and welcoming yet professional. The staff were great and very attentive. I can't put a finger on the food. Best beef I ever had. And tou have to try the lemon meringue dessert. So delicious!

Darkly lit, good views of the city and funky background music which made for a vibrant atmosphere. It felt like a bar that serves good quality food. Perfect place for dinner after a hard days work. We had the chateaubriand to share with a couple of sides and a great wine to compliment. Well cooked steak. Left us satisfied in... More

We went there for a small after-birthdayparty in early April. The drinks were quite ok and they have some tasty small-brewery beers there. The Prosecco (or similar) however was overpriced and tasted rather cheap! Bottom line: Toilets were by any standards awful but some copletely wasted bankers provided some great comedy. Why not visit St. Paul's afterwards?

A decent steak is 32 quid nothing (at all) included; you can find the same or better elsewhere. You pay for lots of waitstaff, nice view, and the name. For a Jamie experience splash out and go here; if you don't need that find better in plenty other spots!

Jamie Oliver's Barbecoa restaurant lives up to every single expectation and more. I started with a Fleur Royal Prosecco cocktail - delicious if you've got a sweet tooth, while my partner had a specialised beer, Siberia Saison, which was nice and malty. We started with the Scallop Ceviche and Crispy Pig Cheeks which were both amazing flavours dancing on our... More

I recently joined some friends for dinner here and we had a lovely meal. The restaurant staff are pleasant, although the bar staff could be a little more attentive. For starters we had the ribs and squid, both were delicious. For mains we had the pulled pork, rib eye steak and burger, plus sides (which are not included). All the... More

Visited Barbecoa with my husband, as a birthday treat. After a mix up with the maître'd when we arrived, we were shown to a nice table overlooking St. Paul's Cathedral. The table was intimate, which we liked, but the noise in and around the restaurant did not match the expectation of intimacy. This restaurant is not for the romantic, which... More
