SquareMeal Review of BBar & Restaurant

Kitted out with leopard-skin prints, elephant carvings & photographs of big game, BB is a strange & mysterious beast on the plains of the Victoria bar scene. Spread over two floors with a brace of bars & a dining room, it offers a please-all run through morning coffee & light lunches to cocktails & small bites at night via an extensive all-day menu that continues the safari theme – think boerewors sausages or springbok fillet with sweet-potato purée alongside steaks & pasta. South Africa plays its part on the style-driven wine list, but it’s the 60-strong contingent of cocktails that really pull in the party animals as the sun sets over the concrete savannah. Signature mixes include Protea’s nectar made with apricot-infused gin, rooibos syrup, lemon, Cape gooseberry & Champagne.

we were 7 that went to Bbar together. I must say , that I was not quite sure what to expect of Bbar. However it was not the best restaurant experience I have ever had , but most certainly not the worst. Shall we focus on the good things first shall we ? The atmosphere is excellent, the background music is quite good and truly fits the style of the restaurant itself. The bar is quite good and the cocktails are excellent. The food it self was very good , the rib eye steak was cooked to perfection and presentation was quite interesting but very good. However, the service was not so good. Truth be told it was very bad. the waiters were rude , and did not seem to care much about what they were doing. When starters were served I was the only one that did not receive my starters. Well i do understand when that happens everyone can do mistakes. when i asked the waiter about it she shrugged her shoulders and said it will most likely be there in a second , 5 min later , no starter , 10 min later still nothing 15 min later everyone on the table have finished there starters. 20 min later my starter comes. regularly asking about my starter , the waiters just don’t seem to care , no apology no reaction , just ‘ it will get here ’ attitude. Overall average experience.

bbar is definetly the best restaurant to go to in Vctoria/Westminster area. I go there occasionaly and have never left the place with disapointment so far! the food is excellent and the staff is just great, very friendly, always helpful and smiling. They have a fantastic selection of wines and the cocktails they make are just genuine! Best Bloody Mary I have ever had! The atmosphere is very chilled, stylish and the music they play is quite upbeat in the evenings but not something that would be disturbing at all. I will keep on going back and would suggest anyone to go and get the bbar experience!
