Barroco Restaurant - Interior Bar

My Last Meal | Barroco

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of dining at one of Old Montreal’s most charming and romantic restaurants, Barroco.  Located on touristy Saint Paul street, Barroco is the perfect spot for couples on date night or friends looking to start an evening out. Food is a hearty take on French and Spanish cuisine, which invariably pays homage to Chef Jeremie Fallisard’s native roots – it also happens to be beautifully presented and delicious to eat.

On a cold and stormy February night, us DINRs took refuge in this cozy cavern and here is what Chef had us try:

Barroco - Burrata and truffles
Burrata with Perigord truffles, olive oil and micro arugula. Can you ever go wrong with truffles and burrata?
Barroco - Smoked Salmon Gravlax
Sockeye salmon gravlax with smoked mashed potatoes espuma, watercress, salsify chips, and salmon & mullet caviar.
AAA Beef & Pata Negra Tartare
AAA Beef & Pata Negra Tartare with matchstick fries and 64°C egg yolk. so, So, SO GOOD!
Barroco - Paella Barroco
Paella Barroco. Lobster, squid, shrimp, scallop, chorizo, morcilla mixed into a tomato, saffron risotto. Undoubtedly a signature dish!
Barroco - Pork Belly
Crispy pork belly in a dashi broth served with mushrooms, shallots, and white carrot puree. Great mix between the crispy skin and the dashi broth.
Barroco - Dessert
Belgian chocolate tartelette with fresh raspberry, sponge toffee and vanilla crème fraiche quenelle. I miss you.

To Drink:

Barroco - Chablis Wine
White: Domaine Billaud-Simon, Chablis Tête d’Or 2013.

Honestly, the meal was as delicious as it looks in the pictures and with service to match we were definitely two very spoiled DINRs! Barroco restaurant is located at 312 Saint Paul West in Old Montreal and is open every day from 6:00 pm. Have a look on DINR to see if  Barroco is showing any same day availabilities.
