Very casual, comfortable, a bit noisy Steak house, although I had also once an excellent Tuna steak grilled to perfection. Waiters are very casual but nice. If you do not mind crowds, then this is the best place to enjoy excellent meat.

The quality of the food was really bad. The fillet steak was massed with tendons which my husband battled to chew. The fries tasted like dried twigs.... totally tasteless. Definitely won't go back. Disappointing for the dad of the day

Well worth a visit when in Umhlanga. We were a table of 12 ladies and the experience was awesome from start to finish. Staff are friendly and efficient, all our food arrived at the same time and the staff made sure we all had fun. Excellent food and vibe!

Great new combos - deboned chicken and steak our favourite. Fantastic service every time. And even though it is a more of an adult restaurant, my kids love it. Their favourite meal is the chicken snitchel and free ice cream cones are a big hit.

This bar and grill does a nice job. I ate there on a Friday evening in March 2016 and had a great time. My meal was delicious. The atmosphere was high-energy and party-like.

Always appreciate a great steak. That is my motto and it is always correct at Barbacoa. Second time there and the service was great and the steak even better.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and haven't been disapointed. The service, the food and the cadre are all good. I am not a big fan of meat, yet manage to find something there that I like (my two friends enjoyed the meat).

Originally a table for 15 which soon became a table for 25 was no problem for the staff. Food was top quality, the pecanha nearly as good as the gaucho region itself. Good range of drinks as well.

Enjoyed a great steak (the pichana) and calamari salad. My guests had forgotten the reservation but there was no issue waiting for their late arrival and Jarred the waiter was excellent. The best st eat I have had in a village where there is plenty of competition.

Description
Bar Ba Coa is a celebration of the age old relationship between fire and food. Traditionally Barbacoa is a form of cooking meat over hot coals or fire and was widely practiced by the Gauchos of Argentina. Meat prepared this way is traditionally eaten with Chimichurri (chimi - chur - ri) sauce, a delicious combination of olive oil, parsley, garlic, origanum, white wine vinegar, and sweet red pepper flakes.
