We'd been so looking forwards to visiting Barbecoa but were bitterly disappointed with the food. The chicken wing starter was very undercooked, and was returned to the kitchen and replaced by an enormous portion of ribs, some of which had a very dry texture. For mains we had the pulled pork which tasted exactly the same as the ribs. The twice fried duck fat chips were not fried and resembled oven chips in texture with no real flavour, and the grilled field mushrooms were stone cold. So overall hugely disappointing. The only upside was the beef carpaccio starter which was delicious, the wine was good and the service very attentive and helpful. The manager was very apologetic and managed the situation impeccably – the food was knocked off the bill and my dining partner had a very tasty pecan pie desert. We suspect they had a kitchen equipment problem as the pork scratchings, deep fried calamari were off the menu, could also explain why the chips were dry. Would we go back? Maybe …
