Great coffee and good service. Food was average, salad was rather bland and expensive. Fairly clean. Would visit again for coffee.

Four elderly senior citizens on a d ay trip to Whangamata looking for a ni
ce place for lunch were told to try El Barrio because one of our party wanted scallops.
We were not disappointed. Kath enjoyed her scallops, I loved my Fish and the men
had pancakes with maple syrup, bacon and banana and a chickenburger.
We followed this with lovely coffee and cake and went away feeling very satisfied
and will definitely go there again next time we are in Whangamata.

Great sheltered courtyard for Sunday lunch good coffee and very enjoyable open steak salad sandwich. Busy Sunday with a lot of locals was recommended by a couple we meet from Hamilton . Will come back again off main road with good friendly buzz

My experience here is pretty minimal consisting of just takeaway coffees collected by others. Having said that, the coffee was great and rated as such by everyone who had coffees. Will have to call in for a meal next time...
