Barrios is quite a big place offering a wide range of tex-mex style food. It has different sections but retains a great overall atmosphere we tried quite a few different tapas dishes and I won't claim it was the best I've ever had but it certainly wasn't bad. The service did slow down a bit as it became busier but not to any great extent and the staff were working hard. After a week of wursts and schnitzel it was a good place to escape.

We've been here several times and while it's not perfect, the steaks are good and good value for money at that. We've also tried the seafood and 'gambas' which we were quite satisfied with. The service is friendly (and timely!) without being intrusive. The restaurant is a bit dark inside but all in all well worth a visit.

Cocktails were ok but tasted a bit watered down.(we had a mojito and caiphirina) We had 2 tapas(jalapenos and coconut chicken) that were served luke warm and tasted and looked like they were frozen and then baked. The coconut chicken looked and tasted like tyson frozen chick nuggets and the sauce was definitely out of a jar. I really wish that places like this would stop serving crappy food that tastes nothing like Mexican/Spanish/Latin food. Please, I beg you, if it's bad take it off the menu because I'm tired of wasting my time and money.

Barrios rules, primarily coz it has delicious Mexican cuisine and a very inspired array of cocktails, oh that and the Happy Hour on some weekdays, where you get two cocktails for the price of one.

The Burrito, the Nachos, the Salads are all fantastic and the quality has been the same the many times that I have eaten at Barrios. The drinks are really colorful and come with those cute umbrellas and are decent quantity-wise. My favorite is the strawberry Capirinha and the coconut-based drinks.

The service is amazing if you order from the right staff. There were a couple of surly staff the last time we were there.

Its a great place to host a party for several people and we've had several celebrations there. The upper deck is a great place for a private party. The music is great but sometimes is rather confusing; like not in keeping with the atmosphere of the place. The menu and the ambience, overall is a bit confusing too; like is it South American/ Mexican/ Cuban? Well, as long as the cocktails are two for one and the food delicious, it doesn't matter much, does it?
