Barbecoa is a celebration of traditional fire-based cooking and incredible ingredients. Founded by Jamie Oliver, it’s much more than a steak restaurant. Our in-house butchers handpick and prepare the very best meat in Britain, then our chefs cook beautiful modern dishes using Texas pit smokers, tandoors, fire pits, robata grills and wood-fired ovens. As you sit at your table overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral, you’ll feel the heat, see the flames lick and the smoke drift upwards from our open kitchen.

What surprised me most about this place is that it's so massive! Seemed to carry on for ages around corners as the waitress led us to the bar area to wait for our table. Still manages to keep a buzzing, friendly feel though with almost every table occupied on a Tuesday lunchtime.
I went for the burger which was good though nothing to rave about - cooked a nice medium rare just as I'd asked...more
I've finally found the best steak in London. It was a taste I'll never forget!
Barbecoa is Jamie Oliver's steak restaurant with gorgeous views of St Paul's Cathedral. The restaurant is lovely - dimly lit with large seating areas. Perfect for corporate entertaining.
They sell steak on the bone (t-bone or ribeye) which is very unusual. I ordered a ribeye on the bone served medium rare. It was...more
