Founded by Jamie Oliver, Barbecoa is much more than a steak restaurant – it’s a celebration of fire-based cooking and incredible, quality ingredients.

Our in-house butchers handpick and prepare the very best meat from farms around Britain, then our chefs use it to create beautiful, modern dishes making the most of Texas pit smokers, tandoors, fire pits, robata grills and wood-fired ovens.

You’ll feel the heat, see the flames lick and the smoke drift upwards from our open kitchen as you indulge in one of our beautiful cocktails or a glass of whisky from our impressive selection.

Great food to celebrate. It’s not cheap but good venue and steak is great. Only gripe was that I booked the table for 8:30 and we eventually got onto the table gone 9 and there was no apology for the delay.

My girlfriend and I visited on Valentine's Day 2018. The food was great but the occasion was a little spoiled by the number of tables that had been packed in to capitalise on the occasion. We were seated right on top of the couple next to us with barely enough space for the waitress to squeeze through, and when I asked to be moved to a different table which I had seen in a more spacious part of the restaurant, I was told it wasn't possible despite the fact that the other table remained empty for the duration of our visit which was disappointing.

That said, we loved the food - the chateaubriand was perfect - and would definitely return, just not on Valentine's Day.

Had a wonderful 3 course meal - really enjoyed the Seabass ceviche and calamari followed by Fillet Steaks and the apple crumble and pannacota. Everything tasted delicious and the service and atmosphere was perfect!

I must stay I was not overly impressed with this restaurant. My family had been a few years back and raved about it but since the arrival the service was not great.

In the booking I had asked for a table near a window but they gave us one in a corridor saying we had to wait 40 minutes for a table one. At the entrance the lady asking the coats was not very kind and took our coats quickly as I believe she was alone.

The steak I got was quite chewy and the spinach salty. However, my parents ate the most expensive steak and it was tender.

The wait staff are professional and courteous, able and friendly. The food is simply fantastic, with beef done as it should be, and sourced from a seemingly magical place that your supermarket does not know of, which is arguably as it should be for a specialist eatery. Simply enjoyable eating that runs as a thread through an enjoyable night out.

very slow service from the bar, to be fair they compensated with a glass of bubbly but waiting 45 mins for a drink isn't acceptable, the food when it did turn up was good quality though

The occasion for our visit on the 3rd Feb was my husband’s birthday and we’d traveled over from Dublin so that our daughter could join us for lunch. Given that this is a steak restaurant, my rump steak was unbelievably tough. My husband’s steak was ok but not great. The rest of the food was good. The overall quality of this meal should have been superb given the provenance and the cost for the meal and drinks. It was by no means superb and I will not be recommending the restaurant. The service from the staff was very good.

Staff were amazing absolutely 5 star but the food wasn't warm and the calamari was so salty which isn't like calamari. Ribs were cold too, not mych sauce. Just wasn't great.

We had a very good lunch and the service was very good and we were not hurried even though we had finished and had much to discuss.
Our only gripe was the wine which apart from being over priced for what it was - we had ordered a 2015 and when we pointed out it was a 2016, the sommelier didn't appear to think it mattered. For example, on the menu was a 2013 at a much higher price point.
A bit like ordering a 10oz steak and being told you have an 8oz as they've run out of 10, but still charge for a 10! I'd have expected better especially as we were lunching with an ex CMO of a major drinks company.
It didn't spoil our lunch of course.

Another beautiful restaurant next to St Paul’s. The view from the restaurant is outstanding and is such a nice backdrop to enjoy such delicious food.

The staff are professional and very welcoming. The food was brilliant, reasonably priced for the quality and portion size. Can’t wait to go back!!

Service was very good but the wines were disappointing especially for the prices. My husbands fillet was good but nothing special. My chicken was underwhelming in taste and presentation but the salted caramel dessert was quite fabulous.

Would have been a much better review but for two issues. Firstly, both the steak and the beef croquettes were clearly overflavoured with liquid smoke. Each had a regrettable acrid aftertaste of burnt plastic that ruined an otherwise perfectly cooked medium sirloin. Secondly, the béarnaise was rock hard, as if it was prepared for service earlier in the day. Given the price point, you’d be better off to stay with Hawksmoor for an expertly prepared steak, but in the event you have a last minute craving and Hawksmoor is booked out, Barbecoa will sometimes just have to do.

Food would have been 4 stars, but the one fish dish they offer had run out (by 7.30 on a Friday!) and they didn't have an alternative. I realise it's a meat place, but surely they can cater for couples with a non-meat eater?
