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.

Everything is great about this place.

Being tapas you get to experience a broad range of tastes. We tried many of them and did not dissapoint. From the olives to the pork slider - they are all delicious.

We had the baby squid and octopus for mains and shared a salad.
Very tasty.

The service was warm and very friendly

One minor nitpick.. I know this is a 'southern' style restaurant but perhaps the overalls worn by the staff are a little too informal for the setting in my opinion.

Anyway, def recommend :)

We were here the other day after coming back enjoying the beautiful sunset (as always) in Petitenget area and a friend of mine ask me to try this new restaurant for her. We order a rib eye and a roast pork. The rib eye was so delicious (I'm drooling now), probably the best I've had so far, and the roast pork although it's soft and taste also nice, but it's too oily for us. The waitress were attentive that anything we'd like to get, we won't have too wait for longer period. Only downside was that we were seated in the corner area, and it feels no AC to cool us down and some annoying mosquitoes. I would be coming back for sure, but I will try different seating area. Price is considerably affordable for westener but expensive for local. Will give it five star when the mosquitoes are not there anymore.

We went following a friend's recommendation and having read the trip advisor reviews we were expecting something special and were not. disappointed. We did not arrive until late and received a warm welcome from the staff who could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Great decor . We started with the warm chapa bread with roasted garlic and balsamic vinegar, yumm. The grilled corn, with chipotle mayo, cheese, smoked spice and lime was fantastic. The cuban pulled pork slider and battered fish taco were also exceptional.The fried cauliflower with cumin and chickpeas pine nits and raisins was also great. The slow cooked pork was excellent although some pieces were a little dry. Excellent decor and a must for anyone dining in Bali.

All the food we ordered was very good. It doesn't have a wow to its food like a sarong May have, it's simple food done right. We had suckling pig, pork sliders, ceviche, octopus and desert platter. Would recommend the visit, would be a great place with a group

It took us a while to get here because the taxi drivers have never heard of it. It's only 4 months old. The interior is just gorgeous. Air conditioned fully. We were greeted by very friendly staff and who asked us where we would prefer to sit. The menu was explained - all meals are shared meals be it between 2 -4 or more people. We chose a bread with dip for entree and the suckling pig for mains. Unfortunately something happened in the kitchen and they both came out together which we felt like we had to rush the bread so the pig didnt get cold. Cost wise - it's more expensive than the norm but then you are paying for the atmosphere. Drinks were the same price as home. Both meals were lovely but it was a shame they came out together. The waiter was very apologetic. We will probably give it another go when we return to Bali.
