If you need a spot that combines Sunday brunch spread with plenty of kids activities at the side while you catch up with the adults, saunter into la Barca. The food is so so but the plenty of kids fun in the form of trampoline, kids water slide, kids playroom and a playground give you ample me time or adult... More

La Barca, located at Goodman Arts Centre, which is in the Mountbatten area, near National Stadium. This Italian restaurant was recommended by a good Italian friend of mine, after all what I can say it was real Italian affair, I would never know there’s an Italian restaurant located here at all. We ordered variety of food and while we waited... More

Really good food. Steak is divine. Great space for families. Service is impeccable. Food service was quick. On the pricey side but similar to top restaurants around town.

The florentine steak is good! Very tender. Although the price is a bit steep the steak quality is good.

Great food and service. Real traditional Italian food. You should try the sea bass and the seafood spaghetti. Al dente like the best! Ambience could improve a little with more careful lighting

La Barca is my go-to place for a wine dinner on weekday, as it has free corkage on Tuesday and Wednesday. Quality of food is consistent. Wait staff are the same friendly faces and provide patient service. It's a kid-friendly place with an indoor playroom and outdoor "playground". Not many places serve fiorentina steak, so if you and your friends... More

Overall service of the place was good. Although it could be abit hard to get their attention at times as there was a large group. Food was great! Would definitely recommend the lobster bisque.

Very kid friendly (i dont have any). Trampoline, water slide, playroom, bouncy castle... pasta was average, portion was small, not justifying the price. Pizza was decent.

Description
Hidden away in Katong, La Barca Ristorante & Wine Bar is a stunning restaurant set within the spacious grounds of the Goodman Arts Centre. ‘La Barca’ – the Italian word for ‘boat,’ was so named due to the shape of the site that it is situated on. We serve classic Tuscan fare with a modern twist, and an emphasis on fresh flavours and stylish presentation.

Being quietly tucked away, we offer a unique calm and serenity absent from restaurants in the city. Thus, we find ourselves excellent host for business lunches or those heart to heart with close friends.

However, we are not all business. Come weekends, we transform ourselves into a family friendly restaurant boasting a Kids’ Playroom, a bouncy castle, inflatable water slides and even a trampoline. A welcoming outdoor wooden deck, makes it a popular choice for children’s parties or just for taking in the tranquility.

La Barca is helmed by Executive Chef Michele Sorrentino. Michele graduated from hotel school in 1979 and has worked as a professional chef ever since. In 1992 he opened Antica Trattoria Botteganova, which was listed in Frommer’s guide’s ‘Top Ten Restaurants of Italy’ from 2000 to 2008. In 1999, Chef Michele received his Michelin star which he maintained throughout the lifetime of his restaurant. Over the years he has received numerous awards and favourable reviews in the international press and has appeared regularly on Italian TV. Having been at the top of his game in Italy for over 25 years, Michele is continuing his innovation here at La Barca.
