Feast at Barrio

Catching up with family and friends is one of the joys of the festive season – as long as you don’t have to cook a feast for each and every gathering.

Barrio Eatery & Bar have a suggestion for you – let Head Chef Francisco Smoje do the work.  ‘Barrio’ in Spanish-speaking towns means ‘the neighbourhood’, and Barrio Eatery & Bar is designed to feel like a home away from home, bringing together the local community in a relaxed environment, so it feels like you’re eating in a friend’s home. Well, the home of a friend who cooks very well! 

Tucked away at Habitat, in the Arts & Industry estate, Barrio Eatery & Bar could be this year’s perfect setting for your Noche Buena (Christmas Eve) and an early dinner for Fin de Año (New Years Eve) celebrations with your loved ones.

‘The holidays are my favourite time of year as we gather friends and family to celebrate all that has been achieved while setting intentions for the year ahead. I’m looking forward to sharing my favourite Argentinian dishes while showcasing the brilliant Byron market produce to our regular customers and new visitors to the Shire’, says Head Chef Francisco Smoje.

Begin the festivities with a welcome cocktail featuring Byron’s award-winning Brookie’s gin, and then sample the earthly delights of Head Chef Francisco Smoje’s special festive menu of Argentine-famed favourites prepared centre stage in the traditional wood-fired oven and charcoal-grill.
