Baraca is proud to be Bournemouth’s longest established premium restaurant.

With its characteristic interior, authentic Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine for nearly 23 years serving a vast array of delicious menus bursting with healthy foods. Baraca serves plenty of probiotic vegan, gluten free and vegetarian dishes, hot and cold mezes, meat and fish specialities that love you and your taste so everyday there is something for everyone you can choose from the menu, all of which are made fresh several times a day and cooked to order.

The head chef Anna, trained in Hilton, with 30 years of experience in hospitality, bases Baraca’s menus around fresh local ingredients, drawing her inspiration from the farmer's market, local farms and her own massive garden supplies most of the vegetables, fruits, salads and herbs. She prepares a range of ingredients from naturally fermented vinegars, home-made pickles and preserves, vinaigrettes, her own secret spice mixes to jolly good dips, condiments, sauces and oils.

Locals love Baraca, the charm of the restaurant and its service, but most of all by the originality, subtlety and sophistication of the food.

Whether you're on a date night, family meal, partying or catching up with friends, Baraca is an ideal choice.
