I was travelling for work with two NZ colleagues, who are unfamiliar with tapas, but I talked them into trying Barakah. It was left to me to choose the dishes as well. Thankfully I wasn't let down by the chef. Had a vegetarian antipasto plate as well as a few tapas dishes including the obligatory chorizo. All were tasty. Service... More

Visited this bar twice over the last few weeks only to be greeted with the same rude waitress she appears not to enjoy her job at all. Heard her talking about customers rudely and very loud, her personal life, and also talking down to other staff members. When the nice friendly girl went home we received no service as she... More

Tired little bar in need of a makeover on the corner of the Octogon opposite to Ratbags. Food nice and presentable on the plate, filling and tasty. Service ok.

The food is good and the service is always excellent. Mainly we come here for the wine. It's pretty small, so would be wise to make a reservation. More upmarket than most other Dunedin Restaurants. Next door there's a good cocktail bar (Carousel) if you feel like more fun after the dinner part of the evening.

Have been here before so was more than happy to opt for it again. Three of us indulged in five different tapas, along with wine and coffee. That's all we wanted, and it suited perfectly, as it has a nice cosy uncrowded feel to it, and the food is good.

My partner and I dined with friends here in May 2011. We had a great night! The food was fantastic - they have an extensive tapas menu which some of us choose from, but also an evening menu as well. The wine list was extensive, with an emphasis on local Central Otago wines. The atmosphere was relaxed and inviting, great... More
