Booked in advance as expected Friday night to be busy, and it was, but a great bustling ambience. They had put us in a nice alcove table. Menu is short but enough choice with special main course of tuna in Asian twist seafood broth. The...More

We passed by this place and I just loved the way it looked. The brick walls, bookshelves, lantern-style lighting, and wooden tables gave it so much character. The food was incredible as well!

Barroco boasts a delightful atmosphere (sit near the open windows and watch passersby on the street) and a delicious menu. The cocktails are inventive, the local cheese is divine, and the wait staff is appropriately helpful. It's pricey but well worth it for an exquisite...More

Without question, easily the best food that we had in Montreal. The restaurant is small in size but huge in atmosphere (although the American rock music seems out of place). Portions are definitely on the small side and prices on the high side, given the...More

We wore business casual. However, there were several other people who were wearing suits. It's definitely not a shorts & crop tops place.

Hello, there are a few vegetarian options on our menu such as the pasta, the tomato burrata tartelette; others can easily be modified to be vegetarian friendly.

At Barroco you can expect to enjoy inspired French Mediterranean fare in a warm and cozy atmosphere. With its dim lighting, stone walls and inspired decor, we offer fine dining that is chic but certainly not stuffy! Our friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff will do everything to make sure your experience is a memorable and enjoyable one. Reservations are highly recommended as our small 45-seat dining room tends to fill up quickly! We'll be happy to speak to you on the phone or you can head over to Bookenda to book a table. Looking forward to seeing you!
