Description: Barbacoa is dedicated to BBQ, wood fire, charcoal and smokey flavours. Our cuisine is Latin American based set in a large warehouse space with massive high ceilings with rustic wood, sandstone walls, mosaic tiled floors and vintage leather banquettes which is totally unique and warm in every way. Our chefs are passionate and proud of the food we serve. We use the best produce available to create delicious, unpretentious food using old and modern techniques. The restaurant has air conditioning inside as well as outdoor spaces over looking the rice fields. Our cocktails and wines are selected and prepared with attention to detail and can be enjoyed at the bar or at your table during dinner.

Wow how good is bali right now for the restaurant scene, this place is gorgeous, incredible tiles, high ceilings, leather….
A group of us visited last week and we had an amazing time, its so nice to feel refreshed with the cool air conditioning falling from the sky.
Delicious food and tasty cocktails, i found out this new restaurant is run by 4 boys from sydney.
Just another reason to get back here next time my Bonus is paid.

Barbacoa, is located in Jl Petitenget not far from Lio square traffic light. We passed by in from many times and that night we stopped to check it out.

Since many friends in bali was disappointed and confused by the food and service there, we wanted to experience it by ourself.

The place was not that crowded which for sure give the time to the staff to take care of us. We were greeted and escorted to our table . Received our menu, the menu is not really extensive and if you don't fancy that kind of south american - latinos flavors like a friend of us, you will be disappointed to not have something to your taste to choose from.

We have tasted the chorizo, octopus, prawns as starter excellent choice no comment the cooking was and flavors was there.

as main courses we took the meat 2 times the same dishes and same degree of cooking (i forgot the name ) but its the second one in the menu and you have only two meats so easy to find out. The meat cooking was really different from one piece to the other and pre sliced which I don't really like it. the problem is that we order medium rare you could see the all range of cooking for a meat - from medium rare to well done. The waiter was really attentive and took care of us.

One comment don't expect any privacy the tables are close from the other and we had the chance to have very loud australian next to us, so that push us to leave the place earlier coz I hate that.

The design is simple, not to fancy. The have valet which is good since the parking is really small.

Price range a bite expensive for what you get.

We visited Barbacoa only a few nights after their official opening. It is fantastic. We ordered a few things to share and it was all wonderful. The suckling pig was a highlight. We had some very yummy cocktails as well. The venue is stunning, high ceilings, amazing air-conditioning (!!), beautiful staff and an overall great vibe. During the two guys that own the restaurant came over to our table to say hi over the course of the night. It was so nice of them to take time to talk to their guests. You dont find that in many restaurants, we were really impressed by that! Genuine, friendly guys....we wish them every success. (looking forward to next visit when the tequila bar is open). PS our waiter Made was simply divine, what a lovely guy.
