We have been to this restaurant quite a few times but this time it was different, they were disinterested and could not give a dam about the customers. We were sat behind a door with hardly no room to move, I had to move my chair so I would not get hit from behind with the door, they seemed to... More

Went there tonight reluctantly with my wife when she had booked through Groupon and her friend let her down . I was pleasantly surprised, a lovely place with friendly and attentive staff. We had starters, steak main courses heating on marble slabs. It was novel and the food enjoyable. Also plenty of parking right outside .we will be returning again.

Saturday night meal booked the steak and prosecco deal on groupon. Sadly when we ordered we were told the only available steak was rump or ribeye - my better half only eats sirloin or fillet, but they had sold out of both... under sufferance she went for the ribeye, carefully cutting round the fat, but I knew her heart wasn't...

Reasonable prices, good selection of meat and vegetables and service is good. The quality is on par with most of the national chain of carveries such as Toby. Access isn't great for the disabled as the carvery section is upstairs. There is a chair lift to the rear of the restaurant. Clearly popular with the locals

What's happened to the Barbacoa that I know and love! Took my family there on Sunday for my 50th birthday because I have been so many times before. To start off our seating area was very cramped. Two of the four starters were unavailable and the soup was cold, good enough we were offered an alternative of garlic bread but... More

My husband and I go quite often but it was our friends first visit. In October I rang to book a table for 10/12/16. Something came up and so I rang to... More

We visited the Barbacoa on Sunday to have a carvery. We arrived late - around 5 (the close the carvery at 6). There were about three other tables occupied. A very pleasant girl led us to a table and took our drinks order. I asked for a cask beer, and she said that they would bring one from the downstairs... More

For over 30 years, Barbacoa has offered some of the best food & entertainment in Crosby & Waterloo. Our Downstairs Lounge serves a great range of Handmade Pizza, Burgers and Full Bar Meals which are all prepared & cooked onsite, unlike Pub Chain Brands who use ready meals. There is also a 2 for £10 offer on selected main courses. The Ground Floor Restaurant serves Modern British Cuisine in luxury surroundings using locally sourced produce. The First Floor Blundell Room is perfect for weddings and family occassions and has a full dance floor & Audio System. Every Sunday is our famous Carvery with 4 roasts and all the accompaniments. Every Friday, Dinner & Live Music with a 3 course meal and entertainment from the best bands around with music from soul to party classics. Our Friday Nights are perfect for Hen Nights, Works Nights and any other celebration or just an excuse to paint the town! Every Saturday is Live Music in our Lounge from local duos and solo artists. Have a look at our website for all the menus and entertainment, we look forward to welcoming you
