“Food lovely, definitely worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went here with my boyfriend for lunch in the bar after a last minute decision where to go and we definitely did not leave disappointed.
We went for their 2 for £12 offer; I had the barbacoa pizza and my partner had the calzone and they were both delicious! We liked it so much we returned a couple of weeks later. Oh and the bread starter with balsamic vinegar is lovely, although a little more balsamic would be nice :)
I haven't eaten in their restaurant but if the bar food is anything to go by I'm sure it will be just as nice.
The only very slight downside is the price of the drinks but I suppose if you are eating on the offer it balances itself out.
The décor is lovely and the staff all look very smart and are very helpful.
Parking isn't great but you can park in the surrounding side streets.

“What a little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Apart from this being a local eatery for me its also one of the best I know. The food in both the bar and restaurant are constantly excellent. Freshly cooked and everything prepared as you order it. The staff cannot be more helpful and the atmosphere is great. Some great deals on bar food - go try, you will have a head job to find better in the area

“Quality but affordability”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Whether you eat at the bar or at the restaurant never had a bad meal there yet
Also own the Royal hotel in Waterloo not far away. No riff-raff either --heaven and live acts at weekends --highly recommended

“Night Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

A night out with work colleagues. The service was good, we were placed on 2 tables at one end of the dining room. The food was good, my portion of squid seemed a little small, others were happy and generally a good venue.

“Our fav”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We just love the food, service and the wonderful atmosphere at the Barbacoa! We especially love the Wine Club, we've been attending for a while now and every one has been different and spectacular, make sure you look out for the next one!
