Description: Bedrock has finally arrived on Aruba with the introduction of Barney’s Bar & Restaurant. Owners Eline Scheele & Ron Huijbers introduced this unique style of Barney Rubble style of dining with Flintstone sized portions and great prices. The menu is absolutely fun! Starting with Pebbles Favorite tomato soup, Bronto Saures Ribs, Yabadabadoo Pork Tenderloin, and ends with Betty & Barney Lover’s Coupe for two.

“Great time, but we ordered way too much food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We sat outside to watch the world go by...very interesting. The service was good with all the food coming at a good pace. I ordered Elien's Creation, which was a fantastic salad with goat cheese wrapped in bacon & smothered with a balsamic dressing. Yum, but I didn't know it would be so big! I could have stopped there. I had also ordered the schnitzel with dutch potatoes. It was also great, with the schnitzel hanging over the plate. My wife enjoyed the conch chowder, & had the schnitzel as well. We both took home a lot of left over schnitzel & potatoes.

The portions are very large. The prices are good for Aruba. Nice friendly place...they make you feel at home. We would definitely go back again!

“Excellent & Reasonable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

What a hidden gem in the high rise district of Aruba! Barney's has a unique theme, The Flintstone's, which is fun for couples, friends or children. Our group split down the middle on hamburgers and grouper. The hamburgers were winners with the our group as well as the grouper. My husband and I personally had the grouper. It's the best we've ever had on the island! In truth, it's the best we've had anywhere.

I highly recommend Barney's

“A place I will go over & over again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Service is very good, staff are really friendly. The food is really good, the schnitzel is world class especially with the peppercorn sauce & Dutch potatoes. Normally have a guy playing piano in the corner who is also exceptional at what he does, just a really pleasant place.....normally finish your night sitting at bar having a few drinks being served by owner Ron who is a really good guy.

“Great Grouper”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This place was lots of fun. They had lots of beer. The soup was fabulous and we had two of the daily specials - grouper done two different ways. We thought that this was a great value.
