About La Baronia

Dear diners, reservations are only required for guests wishing to eat at the restaurant.

Family owned and operated, La Baronia is as authentic as it gets outside of Mexico. Nestled in the university hub of Portswood, this Mexican specialist boasts a menu brimming some of the most enticing dishes you’ll find anywhere. Kick things off with poblano fundido, of fire-roasted poblano and jalapeno chillies and fresh housemade guacamole, before moving on to a serve of tacos, enchiladas, prawn chilaquiles or, Mexico’s national dish, mole rojas made with a blend of over 20 spices, chocolate, herbs and almonds. Washed down with a Mexican beer or expertly mixed margarita makes this one meal you won’t be forgetting. You’ll find La Baronia on Portswood Road – reservations are essential.

Staff were friendly and efficient. 2 for 1 cocktails were great. Food was amazing. Will definitely eat there again. Photos wearing a sombrero were great fun too. Thanks for a fantastic evening.

Fantastic food and excellent service. Great atmosphere. There is often live music and there are several tables outside in an enclosed area. La Baronia is highly recommended.
