“Interesting setting but food overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

The old Dutch barge makes for an interesting setting. However, we were disappointed with the food. I had the smallest ever serving of soup which was also rather bland. Owner was friendly and service OK.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

THanks for terrific meal yesterday at lunchtime , really good people Adele especially , what a polite
young lady . The food was too good we had to escape , seriously good tapas.Will return from home, 120 miles away, when we can find a decent place to stay nearby so that we can stay for full meal at nighttime.

“Expensive for what it was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

we only had tea and cake but very expensive for what we got. Nice location. The service was Ok but not really the best place to have just afternoon tea.

“Great location, fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

After a couple of visits for a drink on deck – and being introduced to the ultra-tasty Munich Red on draught – we went out for a family meal at Cafebarge while on holiday further down the coast. Amazingly fresh food from a brilliant Scottish-Spanish tapas menu. The owner was a top host, creating a very nice vibe on what is an amazing Dutch barge. Apart from the fish we caught and cooked ourselves, the culinary highlight of our hols.
