Yummmmm...The Bloody Maria is delicious.....The chicken bowl was delightfully tender with a great flavor!! The homemade bacon guacamole was a wonderful change from the original. Staff was super friendly and the decor is fun!! A must visit in downtown Richmond.

We stopped here for lunch and it was fabulous. For starters, the fresh salsa they provide with tortillas was very good. And then the tacos were fabulous, both the shrimp and the roasted portobello. Our only issue was that our waiter seemed to disappear for...More

Our group stopped in here for lunch, they did a great job serving us, everything was great. Located on the canal in downtown Richmond, don't know if I would go there for a regular lunch stop, but again they worked out great for our group.

We do not normally use any peanut products at Casa del Barco. But be sure to let your server know about any allergies so they can assist with safe food choices and alert the kitchen.
