“A pleasant afternoon”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Lovely setting and friendly staff. Plenty of choice on the menu.
Had lunch with a friend and we chose 2 starters each rather than a main course. ... chicken wings, Thai fish cakes, mushrooms in cheese sauce and deep friend brie- All delicious and accompanied by a good white wine.
We couldn't resist the home made puds and opted for the cherry roulade... yummmmy. Tea was good and served in a pot but I would have liked a small, strong cafe con leche. The coffee was too weak for my taste. The bill was about 40 euros - Good value.
I missed out on the " egotistical megalomaniac" so hopefully I'll meet him on my next visit. I will return soon.

Full breakfast for 3.95!; great lunch & evening dinner menu and a wonderful choice of home made desserts (all are delicious). Brian and the staff are truly amazing, service is great, food is great and the location is second to none.

“Congratulations on your new restaurant.”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Just returned from a month in Calahonda, we ate at Bar Barou on many occasions. Brian and staff both in the kitchen and front of house were excellent. The presentation and quality of the food was superb. The setting second to none! Live entertainment completed the atmosphere. All in all a first class restaurant equal to Michelin 3*. We wish Brian every success in his new location. Can't wait to return. Agnes and Ronnie x (Bombay Blue)

“Good quality breakfast at a good price”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

We had breakfast twice at this restaurant which has a good roof top location with views over Calahonda above the local supermarket. It is an Irish restaurant/bar and the full Irish breakfast of sausages, bacon, egg, mushrooms, beans, fried potatoes, toast and complimentary tea or coffee was excellent both in quality and price at under 5 euros.
