“An absolute must!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Great service, awe inspiring architecture.. This place is absolutely stunning with amazing food to match.
The only bad thing was that it was hard to choose what to eat as you will want to eat EVERYTHING on the menu. Taste sensation. Here for 7 days and coming back again for sure.

“So full!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

Great food, great cocktails. The 8 hour roasted pig is amazing. Really good service as well. Most expensive item on the menu is 250k. Definitely a great special night out.

“An absolute MUST for foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

From the second you enter the grand Barbacoa space you know you're in for a treat. With a relaxed atmosphere and waiters decked out in funky outfits and a huge bar taking centre stage you immediately feel like something fabulous is in store.

First stop is to order a cocktail - try the margaritas they are delicious and there's a selection to choose from (which can get dangerous!). Then onto the menu - the hardest part is choosing what to have.

As a seafood lover I went straight for the the prawns which were grilled to perfection and I had to order a second helping of the fish tacos because they were so good. I also had the baby squid (yum yum) and of course if there are pulled pork sliders on a menu you have to be crazy not to try - they were juicy and flavoursome - big tick!

One of the dishes that stood out for me was the corn. I realise it's just a vegetable but with the mayo/cheese/spice/lime combo... it was delicious. So much so I stole my friend's portion when she wasn't looking. And I'm not sorry.

I ended up going back to Barbacoa three times while staying in Seminyak. I figured I might as well eat the best of the best while there and the owner/chef was so lovely he made us feel really welcome every time we came which was the cherry on top. Highly recommend!

“Dishonest”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Beautiful place, kind people BUT , don't ask for the menu complete! We were a party of 6 Brazilian guys... We were "induced" to order the menu, 35 USD$ per person. It was a mistake. Don't do that! It was like having a bunch of snacks, not a DINER we were supposed to enjoy. Worse, the manager just said her apologies... I would not recommend you fall in this trap!

Adam D, Manager at Barbacoa Bali, responded to this review, April 24, 2014
Dear Ayres,

We remember your table well, and on the night we noted that you were actually a table of 17 men of mixed nationalities whom had the set menu's not a table of 6 men. Until only recently,we only do set menu's for 8 people or more.

Where we feel your experience has let you down, is that you were all informed that each set menu was to share between 4 people.

What has happened is that since it was a bucks party, and not everyone knew each other, guests were dividing in smaller and larger numbers with the people they knew, including yourself whom segregated into a 6, even though you all shared a long communal table.

This resulted in your group of 6 sharing a set menu what was for 4 people. We made this very clear from the start.

When our female manager was informed that some people didn't get enough food, we complimented more asado pork to the table immediately and then also offered rib eye steak, which was rejected. We are confused that your review doesn't say anything about this?

Hope this explains why you had a not so memorable experience.
