I was in Plymouth ob business and needed somewhere to eat. I had seen this place on previous visits next to the Gin distillery and decided to try it. Inside the decor is fresh and vibrant and pleasing to the eye. The waitress, Anna Banana (what a name!) was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive. I ordered a drink and asked... More

I have visited the Barbican Kitchen many times and it has never disappointed. Every time the service was attentive and fast. The food is delicious without exception, with all the meals carefully thought out. The staff were very helpful when asked about what portion sizes were like for the starters and how many to order to make a main meal,... More

This meal was a surprise for my boyfriends birthday & decided on this place as the menu sounded great & it's near to The Theatre Royal where I had a surprise show booked after dinner. I made a reservation by phone for 6:30pm & said we needed to be finished by 8pm as we had a show but didn't want... More

A friend & I went to Barbican Kitchen on 1st July & tried the express menu 3 course plus a bottle of wine. The food & wine was truly excellent & great value for money. Our server was very welcoming plus friendly. All staff appeared delightful. I would recommend all to try this restaurant for a lovely evening out.

we have eaten at Tanners before so had high hopes for their brasserie style restaurant.. we didn't rate the food, which was not presented particularly elegantly at all.. and in fact my duck breast (special of the day) was chewy, even though served pink. the staff seemed stressed, although spent a lot of time standing at the reception desk. They... More

A surprise visit for my partner to celebrate her birthday. This is her favourite restaurant in plymouth so it was a no brainer to take her here. It was our third visit in a year and again it was to the standard we expect. The meal was excellent, staff very attentive and it was in no way over priced. Will... More

It was my birthday. My wife had ordered a cake for me. On arrival she asked the female server to add my name who said ok. When it came to dessert she reminded the same unpleasant woman about the cake and was told there was no cake. So we ordered a sticky toffee pudding with my name on the plate.... More

We booked here for our birthday weekend celebrations. The restaurant was extremely busy so I would recommend booking. The restaurant is in excellent surroundings and has some great art work on the walls. The food and service were both excellent. The only downside was that I felt it very expensive indeed.
