Visited here with the wife and kids on a weekday evening. The place was rammed! ! I think this was due to the early bird set menu that is great value and great quality. All of food was lovely. My 10 year old loved the daily roast. Service was on the slow side and to be honest this is not... More

We came to Portsmouth at the beginning of the week so was able to take advantage of the generous 20 pound 3 course menu deal at Barnabys. Service was good with the the waitress attentive but not intrusive. I had smoked duck as an entree and it was delicious, delicately smoked and tasty. My main meal was slow cooked pork... More

So sad the lease has to come to an end as this is a gem of a place. Chef is worth his weight in gold, the waitress is just so lovely. If you haven't been here before you must try before it's too late. Very reasonable prices for the quality of food. Will definately be taking friends an family that... More

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
