This restaurant was shut down last time I passed, so never got to appreciate what other diners had enjoyed. Sorry about the rating but it won't let me publish a review without a rating.

So sad to see that Barnabys has shut down, it was such a nice place to eat and such good food, wishing them the best of luck in whatever they are doing now.

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.

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.

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.
