We enjoyed this restaurant and had eaten the night before next door and liked that, their sister restaurant. We had good wine and good food and the staff was great.

This cramped little restaurant (capacity was maybe 20 people?...) turned out to have delicious food and exceptional drinks! The mixologist obviously cares a great deal about his concoctions - I had a “Tea Mule”, similar to a Moscow Mule, but made with Earl Grey tea...More

We passed by this place and I just loved the way it looked. The brick walls, bookshelves, lantern-style lighting, and wooden tables gave it so much character. The food was incredible as well!

Without question, easily the best food that we had in Montreal. The restaurant is small in size but huge in atmosphere (although the American rock music seems out of place). Portions are definitely on the small side and prices on the high side, given the...More

We wore business casual. However, there were several other people who were wearing suits. It's definitely not a shorts & crop tops place.

At Barroco you can expect to enjoy inspired French Mediterranean fare in a warm and cozy atmosphere. With its dim lighting, stone walls and inspired decor, we offer fine dining that is chic but certainly not stuffy! Our friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff will do everything to make sure your experience is a memorable and enjoyable one. Reservations are highly recommended as our small 45-seat dining room tends to fill up quickly! We'll be happy to speak to you on the phone or you can head over to Bookenda to book a table. Looking forward to seeing you!
