Barbecoa - Review

Meat-lovers pay rapt attention! Barbecoa is a very interesting fine dining restaurant that celebrates the flavors of grilled meats. It has an amazing array of grilled meats, seafood and many other delectable delights.

Owned by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, the restaurant is sure to tantalize your taste buds and make you come back for more. It has a very rustic ambience and the food matches it perfectly.

The concept behind this restaurant is to create gourmet dishes with traditional techniques like tandoors and barbeques. This gorgeous restaurant which is quite close to St. Paul’s Cathedral is a nice place to visit for a really grand evening out on the town. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in London itinerary 5 days.

Barbecoa, London Reviews

  • This was a lovely late Christmas treat from our daughter. The food was good. The wine was very nice. The price was astronomical for what it was. Jamie Oliver, I have loved and admired you and your work for years. I have all of your books, but I wouldn't visit Barbecoa again. £34 for a steak. Chips £5 extra. Peppercorn sauce £3 extra. No mushrooms or tomatoes. And then 12.5% service charge is absolutely taking the P.

  • This is the place for meatlovers! The steak is grilled to perfection and the side dishes are amazing. Though it is a bit more expensive it is totally worth it. And to top it all of you'll get an amazing view of saint Paul's cathedral! The suggestions are also very tasty and the service is good. Keep in mind that a additional 12,5% will be added to your bill for the service. They also have a very broad variety of wines and whiskeys. Making reservations is key for it is almost always fully booked.

  • What a view of St. Paul’s Cathedral. I love the location! Great wines, amazing food, staff cannot do more for us. Highly recommended and I don’t say it often! This is my first 5 star review.

  • This was my second visit at Barbecoa after several years (2012). And unfortunately the experience was not as good as last time (last time 5/5 rating!). When we arrived, we were asked to wait at the bar until the table is ready (which is quite normal) but we had to revise our drink order twice because the bar was out of drink X. You should note that on the drink list if its unavailable. We finished our drinks and were waiting until someone comes and shows us to our table. But no. We waited for 40 minutes and were asked if we wanted another drink. I answered I'd rather know when the table's ready. The waiter (at the bar) went to talk to someone and this seemed to have worked, we finally got to the table. We ordered a bottle of wine and steaks (if you're in this place, you gotta eat their meat!). Another waiter, whom I only saw bringing wine and not doing anything else, brought the wrong wine (similar name, but not the same). I mentioned it and afterwards we got the ordered bottle (mistake, can happen). But now we had to wait another 45 minutes until our food arrived. That's a total of almost 1.5h since we arrived at the restaurant (there's supposed to be a 2 hour max seating according to the reservation). I don't know what happened but the table next to us also seemed to have waited a very long time for their food. I'm not sure if the delay was caused by the kitchen or by the service but we noticed that our waiter, Mario, who did a very good job, was pretty much alone waiting all the tables in the section we sat. He didn't get much help from the other staff (only bringing wine, or just walking by busy). We felt sorry for him when he apologized for the delay. His service was very good and friendly but the management in this top-notch and pricey place needs to work on the team-spirit of all waiters. To the food: Meat was excellent. Tender, tasty and done exactly the way as we ordered it. Sides were good, but nothing special. That's what we remembered from our first visit and we came for. To the location: Of course, the view of St. Paul's is stunning, especially in the night with the lights on the cathedral. But this time the restaurant was VERY noisy. We could barely talk to each other across a small table without speaking up. First visit 2012: What an experience. Everything was perfect. Second visit 2018: Food excellent, experience average.

  • For a birthday treat it was wonderful. The food was very good and so tasty. Don't listen to these stuffy up their arses food critic knobs. I really enjoyed it and so did my girlfriend... the atmosphere was good and has some of the best views of London. Staff are very friendly and professional. Lovely decor and not to higher price paid considering it is an Jamie Oliver place. Head upto the roof terrace bar for a sneaky cocktail afterwards and enjoy the stunning views across London. Well worth a visit.
