The vibe is very casual and the staff are great. Most people were drinking cocktails, but we had beer. Dinner was fine but not extraordinary - especially compared to some of the other restaurants.

This is bar food, nothing wrong with that. 2 for 1 burgers and cold beer, but half the patio is closed and the food is cold. For what it is it's good. Set your expectations on low and enjoy your time there.

The reason I rate it as the best burger in the area is that it is high quality beef, cooked to order, from rare to well done. The fries were also quite good!

My friends and I frequent Barba Rojas on Tuesday nights because it's two for one hamburgers that's half-price burgers. Don't forget the picture of beer for 6000 colones which is about $10 US. If the weather allows the sunsets are breathtaking and sets the atmosphere...More
