Absolutely awesome! Everything was perfect, the best place to eat, boogie and have a fun evening. Also you could still talk with the music loud.

Our waiter/barman was friendly and accommodating, we enjoyed each of the 6 tapas dishes we tried and the First Table voucher meant the meal was great value. Based on all of the above, we would happily return to El Barrio.

Amazing Latin food in a prime location on Dixon street, my girlfriend and I loved everything but the Carne Asada and Churros were particularly good.

I think the food could get better. Having some burgers and a wider range of food might bring in more people in. Loved everything else though

I can't recommend this place enough. I held a private function at El Barrio late December. Everything was perfect. After a few initial issues getting in touch (do persevere it is worth it) the staff and management were very accommodating to help me celebrate a very special occasion. The atmosphere, food, service, music were all excellent. Do not hesitate, go to El Barrio
