Steakhouse
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. Barbecoa is home to the biggest collection of whiskies in the whole of London. From Tennessee to Tokyo, from the Highlands to the Lowlands, from Bourbon to the Brecon Beacons, you can try it all at Barbecoa.

    Unfortunately Jamie Oliver got bankrupt the day before my reservation. However, OpenTables continued sending me emails to reconfirm that my table is still booked. I don't blame Mr. Oliver, it's more like KPMG, the company responsible for dealing with the bankruptcy, simply forgot that there might be existing clients with reservations. Meh.

    I booked for dinner for my uncle and I. He is visiting London and elderly but on arrival we found the restaurant was closed. No notification from open table or the restaurant. We managed to find somewhere else but it wouldn’t let me cancel saying I had to ring the restaurant, which obviously I couldn’t given it was closed. Not a great experience, why wasn’t I notified in advance so could make alternative arrangements.

    We were looking forward to this as live in Spain and were holidaying in UK, although we are Londoners. No atmosphere at all; lovely waiter who carried it along, but lacking in any sort of ambience. Food for two was good (rump steak and pork loin), but my fish (sole) was horrible, probably defrosted and had a strange bleach taste. While fish may be a bad choice in such a restaurant, there should be no bad choices, in my opinion. We eat grilled fresh fish over and over in Spain and it is wonderful. Price probably usual for the location, looking out at St Paul's, bu nothing like I expected from the description on Top Table. Try to be honest and people will be less critical, I think.

    I went to Barbecoa for my birthday with two friends. I’ve always heard good things and location/ setting/ views of St Paul's are amazing. Sadly, the food just doesn’t match the setting. The staff were friendly but were stretched despite the restaurant not being busy. The menu is read mouth-watering, and food was tasty but really didn’t deliver value for money. The portions were surprising small, to the point where it came across as penny pinching (stingy). For example, when the Barrata arrived it was a slice! Not a ball… it was as if they’d run out and trying to ration the portions! The ribs came as two small pieces, despite three of us eating. Overall, we ordered well (five starters between three, and three mains with plenty of wine and the bill came to £400, overall, I just don’t think this represented good value for money. There are so many places doing this cuisine much, much better than Barbecoa. e.g. Pitt Cue. It feels like they are coasting, taking customers for granted and cashing in. Disappointing

    One of my favourite restaurants and they didn’t disappoint me on my birthday! I went for Sunday Brunch with the option of bottomless Prosecco, with 10 friends. The food was superb and the service was excellent. As you can imagine with an unlimited amount of Prosecco, my table got louder and louder as time went on, the staff kindly asked us to keep it down and then gave us an extra 10 minutes of prosecco! I never write reviews but I had to this time round, they made my birthday very special. Thanks Barbecoa.

    It’s a shame the service doesn’t match the spectacular views! We ended up skipping pudding as it was taking too long to be served. Meat was nice but not at all worth the price tag unfortunately. A real shame as this place could be a stellar spot for foodies if the attention to detail was there :(
