I liked it. It was friendly fast and good service. Nice food too. No cutlery or napkins but the waiting staff sorted this out.
I enjoy a meal there before the concert. It's chilled and nice.

Bonfire is an industrial-chic eatery located on the first floor of the Barbican, London’s multi-purpose art centre. With a focus on seasonal, great quality ingredients, Bonfire’s menus offer the food everyone craves. Wholesome burgers, fiery chicken wings and indulgent milkshakes can be enjoyed in a relaxed, rustic setting overlooking the Barbican’s lakeside.

The Bonfire menu really packs in a great selection of flame-grilled treats. On the burger side, there is the classic cheese, bacon and BBQ sauce option, or diners can choose patties packed with truffle mayo, BBQ pulled pork and green chillies, or even a vegetarian choice of portobello mushroom, grilled halloumi and smoked paprika. There is spit-roast chicken from the rotisserie, and sides like fries topped with blue cheese.

Desserts at Bonfire restaurant at the Barbican are just as indulgent – there is salted caramel brownie with vanilla bean ice cream, and even gluten-free options like white chocolate cheesecake. On the drink menu, there are rich milkshakes, a choice of craft beers, and cocktails like classic mojitos and negronis.

Bonfire in London is 5 minutes' walk from Barbican Tube Station.

    Food was poor and expensive.

  • (((** 29 December 2017 by Sarah from Lo

    The fruit veggie burger was disappointing: too spices
    Too much halloumi on the burger and it was only just warm
    Chips were fine
    Tea and coffe were fine. Service was fine.
    I chose the Bonfire for convenience as was in Barbican for exhibition: I'll try somewhere else exit time
