“Barney's DISASTER!!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We took a party of 10 to dine at Barney's and were treated like garbage! We had to ask the waitress to take our order and for drink refills. After one and a half hours of waiting we ask the owner to check on our food, he returned to say five more minutes. After twenty minutes and a total of one hour and fifty minutes we left and never ate. The entire staff had a I don't give a big crap attitude. Why risk a bad experience at Barney's with all the great restaurants Aruba has to offer.

“1st time visit to this neat place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

I started with a Caesar salad and the husband had the Cheeseburger soup. For our main course my husband had the tuna steak and I had the coconut shrimp. The food was very good. The owners Ron and Aileen? were on premise and were very nice. It's a newer place and I wish them a lot of success. I also bought a little "wall hanging" done by a local artist that they had for sale hanging on the wall of a cunucu house to go down in my bar area of my family room.

“Mediocre!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

We had heard the chef at this new restaurant was from the much hyped Madame Janette's, so we had good expectations.

We were very disappointed! After an exceptional bread basket, everything was down hill. All three appetizers were mediocre.

I would note the staff was very friendly and attentive (they had to pick up on our disappointment, the seafood soup was good, and the Flintstones theme is kind of corny.

“Great place to kick back and enjoy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Great value and food was tasty and cooked perfectly!. We Had the Fire Cracker Shrimp and the Snails for appetizers. The shrimp was spiced to perfection and the snails were delicious. For main course we had the Steak special (all you can eat on Sarturday night) and the Pork Schnitzel. The steak was cooked rare and the pork was abundant and tasty. The dutch potatoes and the fries were also done right. We topped off the nigfht with a Nutella Parfait that was the best ending to have. The music by Roelle was enjoyable to have dinner by. We highly recommend!
