This was a nice find...we were looking for a casual place to eat one night last April and we found it. Food was fresh, authentic and tasty and we sat outdoors right on the harbor. I'm no wine snob but found it very odd that I was asked if I wanted my Pinot Noir chilled or at room temperature...! I'll... More

We went to Barnacles while visiting my little sister who lives on the island. Best Ribs!! (fall off the bone) on Friday ( only for lunch). The owner came out and talked to us about the ribs being from St Louis. Later we went back for happy hour and dinner. I had the pina coladas, which I think are the... More

We enjoy Barnacles so much we go there for drinks and dinner at least 3 times a week. They have a great happy hour and we almost always order the calamari, we think it is the best around. We recently went to our friends birthday party at Barnacles and it was awesome, great food and superb service. It is obvious... More

Because of our experience, we have chosen Barnacles for our last meal before we left the island (it looks like many people do that, because it is close to the airport and you can have a quick lunch and then catch your plane to Europe or whereever else). Because our favourite meal was the Gyros platter, we couldn´t have anything... More

We came for lunch. There was no-one there when we arrived so we were seated promptly and our order taken. 45 minutes later our food had not been served. Others who came after us were already eating. When we asked why, we were told they had ordered online??!! In any case our server said, our food was coming right now.... More

My friend and I just had dinner at Barnacles and probably won't go back. I had a pork gyro, from which I removed all the pork because it was so fatty. That left a very good fresh pita with lettuce, bland tomatoes, onions and very good tzaziki sauce and good french fries. My friend had the Greek platter, which consisted... More

If you like authentic greek food you will LOVE the place. My personal favourite is the Lamb-Gyro...Very good and friendly service, the staff always makes you feel like a part of the family! Love the atmosphere, even if you just stop by for a couple of drinks at the bar...its worth every minute you spent of your time!

When you walk in you right away feel the Greek vibe! The view is beautiful. The service and owner so friendly and you can tell they work hard at the food they prepare. (For those who posted the service is slow, it's because you are getting fresh food cooked in an authentic style by a person who puts pride in... More
