Food and service was excellent
Paella was so soupy hardly any rice and mussels were empty shells. One clam and 2 prawns.
Waiter never stopped by to see how we’re doing.
Great food, great service, and great outdoors seating.
We had a great meal, as always. Our waitress was helpful and funny and added much to the experience. Service was very fast.
Food and service were very good. Outdoor heater by our table did not work, out of sparkling water, coffee and tea :(
Started with a great cocktail, the traditional Pisco Sour. For the food. the tapas dishes we shared among four of us: Cebiche Pescada local catch, empanadas. Tuna Tartare, Scallops, Palta Rellena, and Empanada Trio. Wonderfully cooked and presented and we enjoyed a lovely, and very reasonably priced Spanish red wine.
Our dinner was great! The salmon was excellent, as was the octopus! The service was a little slow, but expected due to the packed restaurant. The live music made the wait well worth it!! Great music!!
Our evening was great! The food is amazing, such interesting dishes and incredible flavors. The service was excellent.
Excellent food, service, and delicious empanadas
The service was good in the beginning, but when things got busy, we felt a bit forgotten. There were a few times where we had to look for our server for attention. Other than that, one of the best Cesar Salads I've ever had in my life, and I'd order it again each time, and the chips and salsa while waiting for our food was awesome. The cocktails and wine were also fantastic.
We went with another couple. Sat outside in the back. When we commented favorable of the location, the hostess said that most people prefer to sit out front, where they can see the street. We liked the quieter location.
The waitstaff was friendly, but overwhelmed with a full restaurant. So service was a bit spotty. But in the current circumstances, it may be the best the restaurant can do.
The food was good. One dish was too salty. The chicken pallela was outstanding and I would recommend to any diners. Our drink (beer) order was mixed up. They were also out of one of the ordered beers. We did not have dessert.
All in all, a delightful, warm evening with good food and a good dining experience.
The food was very good, our waitress was super nice, but the noise-level inside the restaurant was horrendous. Our ears hurt and we could not converse at all. Since sounds bounce off the hard surfaces inside they need to totally turn down the music volume. They seemed under-staffed so everything took a long time too.
However good the food or service is, the noise level spoils the whole dining experience.
We had lunch on their deck on a Sunday and they had (pleasant) live music. Food was delicious, service was great. We’ll be back!
The food was very good. Fresh seafood and flavorful. The only issue was the time it took to receive the entree. We paid for 2 hour metered parking to dine at Barranco's, only to have to rush out before the meter expired. This was for lunch and the restaurant was not full.
There was no shopping time involved during the 2 hours. LOL
Absolutely delicious perfectly balanced flavors and presentation.
Went here for my boyfriends birthday, loved the chips they serve before your meal. And the food was incredible! Will definitely come back!
This is our fourth time visiting and we had always had a pleasant experience here, Barranco was truly our favorite restaurant & we always recommend it. This last visit however was disappointing. We don’t mind spending $100+ on Barranco because it had always been an excellent experience, but this last visit was not up to par, nor worth the cost. Not saying it was the worst experience ever, just “off”. We left feeling kind of let down by the place. We would give Barranco another chance, hoping this was just a “bad day”.
Food was good. Not amazing but good. Service could have been better.
Exactly what we expected for a Peruvian restaurant. Everything was cooked to perfection, flavors were on point, menu items as eclectic as it comes, cebiche super fresh, cocktails amazing. While a bit pricey given the ambience and casual vibe, it was worth it. We will definitely be back!!!
Nice to have a local outdoor dining option with amazing/unusual food and drink options, no hassles with parking and terrific staff. A gem in Lafayette.
first time at Barranco, the food was wonderful, and service was friendly. will be back.
Food is okay. We had the chicken curry which my husband said that Thai curry is better. I had the tuna which is okay. We also ordered the plantain. I would rather have plantains that are not too ripe when fried. The sauce has a particular spice that I don't really like. Not sure if we are going back but the ambience is really good, servers are good but almost forgot to ask our order if one person didn't come to ask if our order has been taken.
I would recommend just for people to try Peruvian to know their dishes/menu. Everyone has their own taste and preference.
Food was yummy. We were seated right away and our server was very pleasant
Ordered a ton of items all amazing except the baby octopus. Those poor little guys were not cooked appropriately and although had great flavor, total rubber band consistency. We couldn’t eat it but didn’t send back. We fed to our dog when we got home. He was stoked. Service was awesome and that bartender knows what he’s doing.
Great meal! Service was very good - no rush on the food so dishes came out at a good pace. Drinks were refreshing and tasty. I had the Guava Cava and loved it.
Authentic Peruvian dishes served by attentive wait staff.
Good service, good food and great outdoor ambiance.
food was good, sweet potato and jicama fries are always great! some sauces were a bit heavy - but overall very tasty. The service was fantastic - as always. Very attentive and the water glass was never empty. Very nice bar selection... they make a very nice Sangria!
Nice restaurant with great life music good food and excellent service.
An unassuming place. It's a place to enjoy food in a very RELAXED ambience.
A bit pricey but the food is very tasty and made of great combinations.
Check it out and draw your own impression.👍
Fan favorite for me and all my friends. Never had such amazing food and wonderful service. Thanks barranco for everything you do :)
Lovely to dine outdoors. Interesting and fabulously creative dishes to choose from. From delicate yucca chips to hot plantains fresh from the kitchen, the food hit all the right notes, flavors, and textures. The service was friendly and well trained. This is my favorite restaurant in the Lamorinda area hands down. Thanks for a lovely evening as we said our goodbyes to our daughters on their adventures in their freshman year in college. Cannot wait to return!
The music was a little too loud indoors, but good vibe.
Amazing food and service, although we were surprised that our mention of celebrating our daughter’s birthday in the reservation system was not acknowledged.
Always delicious! Best
Food I have had east of the tunnel!
We requested outdoor seating and the evening weather was perfect. Altho the music was entertaining, it was so loud we could not talk with our guests. Food was delicious, per usual. Only disappointment was the dessert menu only offered 3 choices - everything else was crossed out.
Food was very good. However the serving size was tiny. Absolutely tiny for a $25 plate. The maracuya was more watered down than my water. Highly enjoyed my meal, but it wasn't enough food.
Great service from Joelle - attentive and great recommendations
Food was awesome and drinks were fun
The food here is amazing the service is a little slow but it’s to be expected with short staff it’s got a really good atmosphere will definitely be going back
Consistently our go-to spot😋
