Al;ways get a great meal at Barnabys and the service is always top class. Get in before 7pm to take advantage of the early bird menu. We have had groups of 30 in the restaurant for our annual christmas meal.

Came here by chance, was positively surprised. Food is quite good, lamb shoulder and roasted potatoes highly recommended. Nice service

First point our cutlery was stuck to the table. The service was very slow, unfriendly and inefficient. The food was ok. It was better than ok but is was nothing special. There was nothing unique or distinctive about the whole experience. Sorry Barnaby I would rather eat at Knight and Lee's cafe next time we are in Southsea.

Lovely restaurant. Food really good, and value for money. Went here for my husband's birthday. This was not our first trip and it won't be our last.

Dined at Barnaby's for the first time last night - 10 out of 10 for service, food, ambiance. Just a lovely place to dine! We'll be back very soon without a doubt - a real gem of a restaurant.

Can't believe I hadn't eaten here before. Went there on Thursday 17th July, I had a 3 course meal which included Bass for just £20 I can't believe the price for the quality of the food served. The waitress was there if you needed her but not in your face, very polite, friendly and efficient. If I had to criticise... More

The menu was rather uninspiring and had a very 1970's feel to it as did the decor. However, the food itself was perfectly cooked and tasted wonderful. The staff were friendly, welcoming and the service was very good.

Whilst in Southsea for a few days we visited this lovely friendly restaurant and weren't disappointed. The service was great and the food superb. We went for the early bird menu, you need to order your meal by 7pm in order to meet the criteria, 2 courses for £10.50 each. If I were to be in the area again I... More
