Very Good lunch by the sea

Ate lunch at Barabba during our 2 day stay while in the Cinque Terre. We ordered the mussels in lemon and oil; huge portion and very good. There were several mussels that were unopened, so discarded those. Also tried one of the pizza's which was also very good. Service was kind of slow & it took a... read more

Every time we visited Monterosso we ate at this restaurant! There was nothing we didn't like! The food is fresh, tasty and well priced. The service is excellent and staff are very friendly and helpful. Menus are in Italian and English. You can use credit cards. 10/10!!

....but worst service ever. Very unaware of your needs or wishes. With proper behavior the staff would have sold twice as much.

I have order spaghetti con gamberii and the souce was cut, terrible taste and even the pizza margarita wasn'tso good. The guys from there not even known if they have limonade or not on menu and they had. Super expensive and the coperto(tip) is 4euro/person, so in my situation 8euro.

There were five of us in our party, two of our people were served their meals within 10 minutes the rest of us waited 1/2 hour before complaining that... More

I have been around the world, eaten at a lot of different places, this is one of the worst serviced restaurants I have ever taken a seat in. We waited for 30 minutes for a menu, ended up having to get up and get them ourselves. When bread arrived we had to go get our own plated and olive oil... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast at Barabba in May 2015 in hopes of finding some gluten free food options (I am celiac). They had a continental breakfast that was delicious with gluten free toast and additional gluten free packaged crostini-type bread. I was so happy with the gluten free options that we came back twice, once more... More

We had a great breakfast here the last morning of our 5 day stay. Before breakfast we had been there everyday for drinks. The prosecco and drinks were excellent and a great price. The staff was wonderful! We stopped in there a couple times a day for drinks and wifi while sitting out on the beach. Everyone was very welcoming... More
