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

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner. The food was fantastic and nicely presented. The prices are quite high for main meals but so worth it! The service was very good - we'll definitely be recommending to friends and family.

In my view this is the best restaurant in Portsmouth. The service is brilliant, food is consistently good. Always served with fresh vegetables and a choice of potatoes. The ingredients used are of very high quality and I have never tasted a sirloin steak in peppercorn sauce that is better than the ones served at Barnabys. I like mine rare... More

We stumbled on this place while looking for somewhere that catered enticingly to veggies and non-veggie alike. The 'vegetable wellington' was absolutely delicious, served with a large selection of al dente vegetables. The steak and ale pie eaters cleaned their plates! The decor and the loos are a little tired, but if it's eating delicious food that's top of our... More

I went to Barnaby's on Sunday for their Sunday lunch which was a pleasure as always!! The value for money is still brilliant and at only £3 each for a starter and a dessert I think everyone would agree that is hard to beat. On top of that I actually got beaten with my main course as there was so... More
