“A lovely friendly restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

My daughter and I love Baraca restaurant in Charminster and we eat there nearly every week. The restaurant does look a little dark from the outside, but don't be put off by that. The atmosphere inside is warm and welcoming and we have always found the food to be very good. There is a small seating area at the front of the restaurant decorated with lovely flower tubs and baskets, were you can enjoy a meal or a drink and watch the world go by.

“Friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

We went in for mint and lemon tea and were enveloped by the warm, fragrant smells of the food being served. We ordered falafel and were more than satisfied with the mix of flavours not to mention that deliciously fresh herb and chilli relish that came alongside.

“Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Saturday night, 9pm, no reservation- the place was packed, but they found us a table for two. Busy, cosy, and atmospheric. We chose the set menu 'platters' £12.95 each for two courses. The selection of mezzo starters was excellent; tasty and varied. The mixed grill main was the ideal amount of food- not too much, and cooked to perfection. Again, excellent variety. Service was timely and friendly. Can't wait to go again!

“Simply amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Having had worked in a restaurant myself, I knew that big groups always equal trouble. Not in Baraca! I have recently organised a work lunch, a party for 30 people and everything went smoothly and without a slightest problem. From the very start, the communication with the lovely manager and staff was flawless and everything was ready upon our arrival on the day. Five star food, service and atmosphere, all in a pocket friendly price range. The food amazes with flavour and presentation - big thanks to the chef. I will definitely be back.
