We had a girls night here for a change and had a great time! Good food, 2 cocktails for £12 and the music was great. Would definitely recommend for everyone to give it a go at least once!

Good quality food, tasty. They are obviously understaffed - food took a very long time to arrive

Lovely place and a nice vibe. The Lamb ala lamas was amazing and great ceviche but that could have been because we waiting over an hour for our order to arrive. Good place but don’t go if your looking for a quick bite, it’s a chilled out wait.

I was not bowled over at Barrio. The food was all very generic and didnt stand out as very high quality. I would go back here if I was with a group and it was more about drinks and nibbles... but not if its all about the food.

They couldn't find our reservation although we have done it 3 hours before via Open Table. However they let us sit on a reserved table until 9pm. The waitress was as cold as an iceberg. Zero idea of customer service, not even a smile. The menu was rubbish with only FOUR items as mains (including nachos. Since when is nachos a main dish?) The ambience, the decor and the location are the only good things about this place. Don't waste your money going there🙁

Made a last minute reservation here for Valentines Day, staff were really friendly and even though it wasn't busy they still put a personalised reservation sign on my table. The cocktail I had was great and the waiter really new the menu.

Really enjoyable visit. Been past many times and saw the food menu had changed recently so wanted to try. Friendly staff and the lady manager was lovely. We had the chicken, the octopus, and the steak - all of them amazing, especially the chicken, so tasty.

Will definitely go back again soon

Really cosy, relaxing place with super friendly and helpful staff. We've been noticed as soon as we got there and been offered a table. Asked for gluten free options in the menu and our server helped us straight away which made my life easier. Food is amazing on a fair value. I'll definitely come back and recommend anytime if you want a chilled midweek night out with nice food and good cocktails!

Friendly service and great cocktails and happy hour etc however the food wasn't quite right and had to send a few things back ! Once they get the food right it will be better. Currently more of a fun venue to drink cocktails !

Food was very average - our waitress forget a few dishes , could not tell us which dishes were gluten free and the one fish dish was off but we didn't not get a refund for it. Cool decor and vibe otherwise but I won't be going back

I made a reservation at Barrio Brixton for 15 guests in order to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.

Our experience was a bit disappointing for a couple of reasons:

- We thought we were going to be able to have a selection of their tapas for lunch. However, only their brunch menu was available when we got there at lunch time (1-3pm on a Saturday). Please note that the reduced availability of the normal menu is not stated anywhere on their website, and it wasn't communicated to me when I made the reservation either. We were also handed both menus and they waited until we started ordering to tell us we could only order brunch food

- Barrio Brixton claims on their website that you can ask for 'complementary bubbles' if it's your birthday. When I inquired about this, I was told that the offer can only be claimed if you return to the restaurant the next day for a second visit. Please
note that no T&Cs for this offer can be found on their website either. It is just a misleading marketing strategy to get big groups of people to visit

Cute decor. Terrible selection of food for vegetarians. Cool bar and open late night too.

I made a birthday booking and even though it was confirmed with Opentable and the restaurant had emailed me directly, they claimed not to have my booking when I arrived. I was then told I couldn't have the free birthday drink I was meant to receive because they did not have my booking, despite showing them both the Opentable confirmation and the email from them. Also, they didn't have a lot of the dishes on the daytime menu on offer, despite it being a small selection of food compared to the evening menu. This together with one of my party receiving the wrong cocktail and being told they still had to pay for it even though it wasn't what they ordered. Avoid! There are far better places in Brixton that will give you a much better experience.
