About La Barca
LA BARCA IS A MULTI-AWARD WINNING SPANISH TAPAS RESTAURANT AND BAR ON THE HELENSBURGH SEAFRONT.
With a bright and vibrant interior, it’s like stepping into your favourite restaurant on holiday with over 40 delicious tapas and paellas on offer.
La Barca, which means ‘The Boat’ in Spanish, features a handcrafted boat-shaped bar, beautiful harbour scene mural and striking Spanish chandeliers.
Our customers soak up the atmosphere as Spanish waiters whisk piping-hot cazuela dishes to their table on a giant tray to enjoy with a fruity Sangria, smooth Rioja or refreshing San Miguel.
Diners can choose from Pan Aceitunas y Charcuterie. Tapas Vegetales, tapas de Carne and Tapas de Mar sections as well as paellas for two and homemade desserts.
Dishes range from tapas favourites like Gambas Pil Pil - king prawns sizzling in garlic and chilli to Carilleras de Cerdo - slow roasted pork cheeks in apple, cinnamon and sherry sauce.
New additions to our menu include seared monkfish cheeks wrapped in pancetta, Scottish king scallops and Stornoway black pudding and Scottish smoked salmon croquettes.
Although we are a Spanish restaurant we have a fantastic Scottish larder to choose from and these form our Spanish tapas with Scottish ingredients. Customers love to see Scottish scallops, Scottish premium steak and Scotland's favourite Stornoway black pudding on the menu.
La Barca is a taste of the Mediterranean with a friendly atmosphere to match.

Been to this restaurant many times for birthday lunches & get togethers I have never been disappointed. Great food, many choices great value for money. Great service & very polite waiters. Would highly recommend.
Had a lovely lunch with the hubby. All staff are pleased and very helpful. Will definitely be back again.
We found it necessary to change our booking several times and each time the staff were helpful and made us feel it was no problem at all, much appreciated. Service was attentive, quick and having been several times before, we will continue to visit in the future .
Menu looks great but didn’t really live up to the expectation
so good to get out for a lunch., As usual La Barca did not disappoint - the only thing missing was a nice glad of red with my meal - but had no option due to current COVID restrictions
