    Pit beef.... is really tender, tasty and comes in a good portion for what you are paying. Bbq beans where great with smash potatoes. Bit expensive but good atmosphere and view of Saint Paul.

    You have to sit at table 71 with view to St. Pauls Cathedral and..... no matter how much you ate you have to try the White Chocolate Cheesecake with Blood Orange Sherbet

    Meat, Meat and more Meat! The Fillet steak with bone marrow and smoken bernaise sauce is one steak that I'll certainly remember. The pit smoked pulled pork is also amazing, not to mention the ribs!!

    The soul of the fire meets the passion for the service. What an anazing experience. Amazing beef, starters, drinks with a view to die for. Must go for a celebration.

    The second best piece of beef I had in my life! The prawns to start and the chateaubriand to share are simply beautiful. Great cocktails as well

    Friendly, helpful and well-informed staff are on hand to help you out with your meaty choices and they also have their own butchers adjacent, where you can pick up British meat, poultry and game.

    I found the surf and turf oysters appetizer to be delicious! Perfect balance with the tempura battered oysters w/ the lemon wedge and a light puréed tomato dipping sauce!

    Fantastic food with an amazing eye level view of St. Paul's Cathedral and the waiters are helpful & polite. Overall, the food is excellent and reasonably priced, unlike their expensive drinks menu!

    Amazing food with fabulous views of St.Pauls. Bread and olives a must and for the burgers lovers best burger with fantastic side order of mushrooms and coleslaw.

    "What with all the books, magazines, TV, charity work etc, it's easy to forget that Jamie Oliver is first and foremost a cook. So is his latest venture, a US-style barbecue joint, another winner?..." Read more

    One of my favourite restaurants in London. Try the ribs to start- they're a must! Get a seat by the window overlooking St Paul's to impress.

    I complimented the surf & turf oysters, but be careful of the pulled pork shoulder. It's TOO rich in flavor. Found myself chasing it down with water & bread. And I still didn't finish it.

    Everything Jamie Oliver touches turns to gold. Based around impeccably sourced meat & fish; the restaurant will boast more cooking methods than anywhere else in the UK too. Read more

    Get the pit beef. It's amazing, and probably the best thing on their menu. I'd skip the chicken. Ask for a seat overlooking St. Paul's.

    Try to get a view of St. Paul's - it's great. Otherwise hawksmoor has better steaks and there are better, cheaper options for bbq food in London (the joint, hotbox, etc)

    Great BBQ! Order from the smoked section, don't bother with the overpriced steaks. Read our full review on Scoff London: http://scofflondon.com/restaurants/barbecoa-review-ec2/

    Fillet is very good. Try the cornbread, very heavy with cheese but delicious. Big portions so work up and appetite before coming here.

    this restaurant, although very different, reminds me of Animal in Los Angeles. As a confessed meat lover, bring on the meat meat meat! The steaks here are tops.

    Baby back ribs are great to start, pull pork shoulder is lovely for main but could be a little rich for some. Brooklyn larger is amazing.

    Good cocktails and bar staff. The rest really seems like pot luck. Some of the non-meat dishes are trying too hard. Get the St. Paul views if you can to make up for failures elsewhere.

    Go for the ribs in the mains. Super tender. Entrees are on the small side too. Chicken wings not as tasty as expected. Service was v good tho

    Two words: Spicy Fifty. Vanilla vodka, lemon, elderflower, honey and chilli. And a fresh red chilli in place of the olive. Phenomenal.

    The Baby Back Ribs are truly excellent, as is the Belly Pork. Was disappointed by the puddings though as they lacked the snappy presentation and imagination of the starters and mains.

    The T-bone steak is HUGE! You could easily share it between 2 and get some starters and sides as well.
  • Dionysis Z.
    Nice view and cocktails! 17.00 -20.00 special prices, free Wi-Fi and a variety in food. Must try it :)

    Order the whole, marmalade-glazed "Beer Can Chicken", cooked with the can stuck up the butt -- an ill-advised way for a chicken to prove his courage. Read more

    Excellent food and great service. The steaks are the best in London, try a Barbecoa blazer after your meal or the cheesecake for dessert!

    Crab plate and the burrata/prosciutto are amazing. The ribs also worth trying. Don't really need anything else.

    Amazing 48 day aged rib eye. Tender, juicy and packed full of flavour. Well worth the 35 minute wait.

    High-quality and delicious food. Try the Mexican Chicken; it has an original Mexican flavour.

    Try the baby ribs to start, then order the rib eye steak for two with smoked butter!!!

    Owned by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. It has a very rustic ambience and the food matches it perfectly.

    Pig's cheek starter and the burger are both agreeable. Avoid window seats on a hot day, or ask the waiting staff to lower the electronic blinds.

    The steak is the best I have had. Brilliant peanut butter cheesecake too.

    Good food but very noisy and hot, especially when you're right next to the grill. Demand a better table if you're seated there. The waiters' table right next to you doesn't help.
