El Barrio?

Jenya Aug 12, 2010 10:37 AM

Hey there,
did anybody have luck to try out El Barrio? I had two attempts to have lunch there, and both of them failed: first time because the waiter didn't really feel like serving me (and it wasn't personal, since there were couple of other people sitting and waiting with no luck), and second time they didn't have half of the food that was on the menu. Any positive experiences? Should i try again?

    All of the online reviews have said that it is not worth it. Bad service and inedible food. Tourist trap?

    Count yourself lucky that you did not spend your money there.

      I thought the food was pretty good, but yeah, bring a magazine and maybe some shaving equipment.
