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.

The food at Barbacoa is amazing it ticks all the boxes

The ambience is brilliant and if you get a nice night sit out the back it's a treat (if it's hot the dining room has AC as well which is lovely!)

The staff are AMAZING especially my Man Ari and the head barman (can't think how to spell his name!) Chatted to us a lot and were passionate about what they do. If the owner reads this hold onto them two and give them a pay rise !!! Young Dede on his first night was also a treat he is a trainee from the islands and his smile was infectious as was his attitude we loved it !

We tried a lot of the menu as we went as a couple and then with friends

The tapas share plates are so good and generous sized
Highly recommend the cauliflower (who thought you would ever write that!) and the candied walnuts on the beetroot salad , well I could of eaten just them and been satisfied
The pulled pork sliders are great as well

Now the mains ASADO of the day was pork and WOW it's epic that's the only way to describe it
The friends we went with we're also blown away by the pork
Everything else in that section is great as well and the burnt carrots and potatoes are moreish

And then there is desert and cocktails !

The espresso martini and choclate truffles to finish the meal is my girlfriends new favorite
I personally love the ice cream sandwich and a jalapeño margarita but the choclate truffles are something else as well ( we even stopped to get them on the way back to our villa for the best movie snacks ever!)

I will be back that is for sure ! Up there with the greats of Bali

“Two thumbs up.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2014

Went to Barbacoa tonight for dinner and it didn't disappoint. Newly opened last November this restaurant has been built and fitted out superbly. Great vibe. The food is tapas style and barbecue char grilled. All items we had on the tapas menu were delicious. Although they have a wine list you can bring your own bottle but u will be charged $25 corkage. The staff are very attentive and we had a lovely chat to the very handsome 2 IC Krishna who made us feel very welcome. Definitely put this new restaurant on your list whilst in Bali.

“Awesome”

Loved it! Crème Catalan was good, every other dish was amazing!!! Spanish Style Fried Potatoes & 3 Hour Flan are dishes you may over look but well worth ordering. Everyone (party of 10) really enjoyed the food.

“Absolutely incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Barbacoa has to be my all time favourite resturant.!!
Impeccable service, fabulous interior and all out INSANE food!
I would have to say after being a La luciola/ Metis/ sarong/ sardine/ Mamasan fan, this wins by far!
Menu is half tappas style half fuller servings! Food is charred to perfection - mix of meats and seafoods-AMAZING!
Dessert was also out of this world - two of the best desserts I've ever had in my life!
Food is very well priced, potato bites are ridiculous. Most expensive dish is $25 for Australian imported sirloin beef which was- again incredible!
Thank you Adam for the flan - no words to describe!
This is a must visit - we went twice in our week stay!

from the initial service as you walk in the door, to the final mouthful of dessert; Barbacoa was incredible. We went back two nights later so we could try almost everything on the menu and u will battle to find a bad dish. All the staff were amazingly friendly and attentive and every single meal was unbelievable! Cannot recommend highly enough
