Spanish for 'neighbourhood', Barrio is all about Mediterranean fare and casual dining
Barrio, a restaurant with a Spanish name, but a more broadly Mediterranean menu located in the heritage-listed Ivanhoe fire station. Moody lights, dark nooks, great service, you get a complete dining experience without too much fuss, and some serious romantic atmosphere to boot. Booking is a good idea, especially for the weekends, but you might get lucky if you walk in on a week night. Owned and run by Paul Rae, formally of Bottega (Bourke St CBD) and Italy 1 (Camberwell), and with acclaimed chef Henry Honner running the kitchen, these guys know what they’re doing.
