This Argentinian style restaurant has more a bar-like feel to it than a traditional restaurant, but the informal settings is actually very nice and with a good vibe. Had a great steak with sauce - well prepared and I enjoyed it very much. Prices are a little on the high side for s steakhouse, so not necessary the best value... More

I went with work friends for dinner and we all enjoyed our evening. To start I had deep fired prawns with sauce. The portion was very generous and the prawns were the biggest I had seen, very tasty.

Always visit whenever we are in umhlanga. Reliable service and the meats are cooked to perfection. Its not much more expensive than other restaurants and the price premium is more than compensated for by the quality of the food. Always a busy, popular venue.

We really enjoyed our visit to Barbecoa knowing nothing about the food offerings in Umhlanga Rocks. Barbecoa was so straightforward offering steak-a-plenty plus a wide range of chicken and salads. We were not very adventurous, sticking to steaks, plus various sides, but what we had was delicious. Great food,laid back atmosphere, good prices. A good night out!

I was living in Umhlanga when Barbacoa opened some years back but for some reason, never visited. On a recent trip home (I have been living in the UK for 15 months) I was treated to a meal at Barbacoa and was extremely impressed. The service was spot on - the waitron (Siyabonga) was knowledgeable and helped with wine selection,... More

Barbacoa mainly a "meat" restaurant with other additional eats. Particularly enjoyed their starters and we had a "spread" of six starters including chicken wings, meat and salad.
