We had very good meal just before Christmas - all dishes well cooked and tasty. Good varied choice of dishes to choose from (including some new ones); service excellent and very drinkable Sangria too. All in all, an excellent meal.

We visited one day recently and ordered wine and tapas. While the place was quite busy, the service was good. The wine however, was terrible even though we had selected a particular wine which we know to be good ( our glasses were delivered already filled, so we didn’t see the bottle ).
Then our tapas arrived. Over cooked and greasy. Not good. We picked at them a bit and left shortly afterwards having not drank our wine either. I wanted to complain as we were leaving, but I didn’t.

Early evening meal. Good selection of Tapas which were enjoyed to the full as just back from Spain. Although busy, each group had their own cubicle, which limited the noise levels.

We have been regulars of La Barca since it opened and it never fails to please. Super food, great value and a warm welcome from Carlos and the rest of the team.

This restaurant is an amazing place on the water front looking out onto the Clyde with a wee sunset to seal an amazing lunch with the other half.I can only thank the waiter Scott for his time and patience as he explained the different dishes and what was new etc so thank you to that. The food came out at a good pace and the taste... well I think the stars speak from themselves I will definitely be back and can’t wait to try some more new dishes.
