Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We arrived early as we had not booked and managed a table for two. This was Saturday night and within ten minutes the place was full and people waiting. Staff really in the ball, drinks came fast and order was taken. No long wait The...food was exceptional. My wife had pulled pork nachos, and I had pulled Beef enchiladas. The servings big and sooo tasty. Personally haven't had such great Mexican in Australia . It had flavours that were reminiscent of Mexico and Southern California.More

The food was exceptional probably the best Mexican I’ve ever had. The service was great and all the staff were very friendly! Will definitely return! If you’re in Kingscliff don’t go past, but remember to book as it gets very busy!

Super quick delivery of our meals -within 10 minutes of ordering. Strawberry Marty was tasty but very small. Pulled pork nachos and quesadilla were a hit. Pulled beef nachos were good however a little spicy which our teen didn’t like which was a shame- no...mention of this on menu. Overall we enjoyed our meal and were in and out in an hour.More

It was our first time dinning at La Barrita and it wont be our last. It is a very busy resturant and I can see why, I would try to book ahead unless you don't mind waiting. The staff are wonderful and so helpful and...the food, wow! So delicious, highly recommend the street corn and well anything it is all great. Loved the margarita's. I highly recommend this place if you are staying in Kingscliff.More

We had walked past this venue for a couple of nights and we’re looking forward to our booking. We were completely delighted from the moment we arrived at the “please wait here to be seated” sign. Team member after team member excelled. Gave us suggestions...on food and timings the dishes would arrive. We ordered and shared everything starting with the Poppers - very good. Followed by the pork belly tacos- very good. Finished off with pulled beef nachos. The husband isn’t normally a fan of nachos in restaurants but declares this the best he had had. We added a side of fresh Chilli’s. All in all very good snd we will be back. Cannot recommend food and service more highly.More

So we had already decided Italian was too late at 8 so my wife and I decided to have Mexican at 7:45! We weren’t disappointed! From the Sangria through the street corn , to the flaming fajitas followed by the apples and caramel all was...well presented and cooked ! Staff were friendly and helpful although I did try and send the corn back lol. We will definitely eat here again even if it is to confirm consistency of the meals! Well done my compliments to the chef and the staff!More

Booked a family dinner for our anniversary. Requested 5.30pm, was offered 5.45pm. No problem. We were running 10mins late on the night, rang to advise & was told we had to be out by 7.15pm - first I heard about the time restraint. Not really...a relaxing dinner knowing we had to be ordered & out in 1hr 25. I was hoping for a cocktail & look over the menu before ordering but no, one cocktail, dinner, out. Staff were nice, food was good but the overall experience, very disappointing.More

Hi Rhiannon, We don't have Bloody Marys on our cocktail menu. Though we do have them popping up on our specials board every now and then. Kind Regards, La Barrita.
