Tastiest food and feel in town, Top class

After a dinner with my anniversary friends, we all left with a feeling of oh yes we will come back to this place. The most amazing this was the consistence in taste across all different courses, we each ordered something different amongst the 3 of us for starters, mains, and the dessert (glad we... read more

Do not know where to begin. The food was over the top delicious and paired with the best and most appropriate wines. We come from a foodie town so our expectations are never high when we eat in another city. Needless to say The Foodbarn exceeded our expectations.

What a lovely surprise. We were a group of six friends and we all had a superb meal. We took our own wine and chose to have the Winter A la Carte Lunch Menu. We each had two courses, with shared sweets and finished with coffee. Every single morsel was delicious. We had a very helpful and knowledgeable waiter. The... More

It was my mom 80th B'day and a party 9 people were doing sight seeing around the Peninsula. on a Monday during the school holidays. The Deli at the Food Barn does not accept bookings but was buzzing when we arrived shortly before midday. The choice of either breakfast or lunch was worth the few minutes that we needed to... More

The pairing was spot on, the ambiance great and the service world class! Thank you! Just on the side, I was pleasantly suprised with the bill. I... More

The evening consisted of a 10 course meal with wine pairing and left me speech less. The food was fresh, delicious and well plated. Our waiter Jarod was professional... More

Visited here when it was cold. The reception was great and we were looked after well. The choice of food was excellent and very tasty service was good though not always 100% attentive. Good choice of wine We were made to feel special and enjoyed the experience. Would definitely return.

Quiet tapas bar (opposed to Spain!) with (small) tapas menu, bust so, so tasty! I think, better than in Barcelona! Very knowledgeable waitress, not overbearing, and so friendly

The cuisine is exceptional, with fresh ingredients creatively combined and imaginatively served. The Foodbarn restaurant = fine lunches & dinners with kids and dogs and, maybe, bare feet
