I was there on the 10th of July together with a friend of mine. We took the Salad of the house which was called "The barrel" if I am not mistaken which was supposed to be with spinach. After a while the waiter told us that they were short of spinach and they would use more lettuce and less spinach.... More

I loved our starters Bekri Meze, Whitebait, and Dolmades and our mains (can't remember the Greek name but it was beef in a pot with onion, just so tender, and delicious)! I must say, the food was absolutely delicious, and the service was absolutely wonderful. We also got free ouzo and ice cream. Yum.

Have been visiting the Barrel since it opened in 2012, the menu is very extensive and caters for all, there is also a children's section which includes 'chicken nuggets'!! But believe me Jamie Oliver would even approve of these nuggets! Calling them chicken nuggets is an insult to the chef.... The fact that this restaurant puts in so much effort... More

I had a great 7 day trip to Nidri, Greece, along with 6 other people. All of us agreed that we should stop searching for good places to eat after we discovered The Barrel, in the second day. The quality-price ratio is excellent, and the food is both tasty and looks incredible. And, even more important, the staff is always... More
