Good simple food

Best part was the service - very friendly and efficient lady working the room. Steaks were good, cooked about right and with nice baked spud or chips.

A return visit for us to Barney's. I had a steak that was a beautiful piece of meat - tender and juicy and cooked medium as requested. My partner had a chicken dish that was also very tasty. All in all, a lovely meal in a nice relaxing atmosphere.

We came here for dinner, and it was entertaining. Reminded us of Fawlty Towers. The waitress kept making mistakes, forgetting things, and spilling our wine. The food was ok but not great. Idaho potato came out on the plate with no butter/sour cream/cheese like it normally does - just potato wrapped in foil. (Just before we left, the table next... More

The legend of Barney Duffey may be just that, a legend, but the food is real enough, and of a good quality too. The service is good without being great, but it is really "Island Friendly", and it fits in rather well with the overall pace of Norfolk where everything seems to run on Norfolk time. This is a good... More

A really "fun" place to eat. Decent simple food and great service. Did "B.D." ever exist? And if he did, is the legend true? It doesn't really matter. Just enjoy the atmosphere. Well worth the visit.

Great place for a meal and 'typified island life' in many ways. The food was really tasty - i had T bone steak (Norfolk Blue) - great. We had a laugh oe two, cutlery was all different at our table, along with glasses of a different size / style... but all good, after all it was Norfolk.

This meal was great because the service was fantastic. A very engaging one woman band servicing a full house. Food was great but ... My drink had ants in it. I'd still recommend it because it's an interesting dining experience with a great story to read about.

Went there twice as they are open a bit later than most restaurants in Burnt Pine and enjoyed myself both times. Different wait staff each time but the same friendly service from each. Food is good and the chef - Paul - is happy to cater to requests.

What a hoot we had - the first time we went we spent the evening chatting with other tourists and the waitress who was full of great tips for what to do. The food was excellent, service good and prices reasonable. We had thought to try out a couple of other places just because we could....The Rock 'open 7 days'... More

Perfect service. Rowan, our waitress was amazing. Drunken Prawns are to die for. Pork spare ribs were amazing. The cocktails that Rowan made for us were super fantastic. The warmest, friendliest restaurant we have ever been to.
