We visited this restaurant twice during our 5 day stay in Guernsey. On both occasions we were delighted with the choice and quality of the food! The staff are wonderful. The only problem we had was obtaining a booking at a very popular restaurant- deservedly so.

My wife dined at La Barbarie during our week in the Channel Islands. We chose the restaurant after reading the reviews and studying the online menus. We were also influenced by Rick Stein's comment that the lobster was the best he had ever tasted. We were therefore determined to try the lobster so when we telephoned to make our reservation...

AFBC, Manager at La Barbarie Restaurant, responded to this review

Dear Margaret Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your evening started in this way. It is very unusual for guests to sit at any random table before we open the Restaurant at 5.30 pm. My receptionist should have been clearer and shown you to the bar where you would have been looked after till the restaurant opened.... More

A diverse menu making it difficult to make a choice ! We have dined in this restaurant many times during our visits over many years and it just gets better and better ! Which seems impossible as it's always been lovely ! The staff are a delight and cater for our every need. We can't recommend it highly enough

After too long a gap my wife & I took two granddaughters for lunch & the food & service were of the same extremely high standard as always. Perhaps it is no coincidence that every time we have eaten here, the owner has taken the trouble to check that we were being well cared for. The daily lunch menu had... More

After several meals, we have thoroughly enjoyed, I have to give La Barbarie a 5 star review. The food is excellent, very reasonable and served by some of the nicest staff in Guernsey. The hotel is in a great setting at the head of a lovely valley, connecting to some of the best cliff walks on the island. They also... More

We took 2 self contained apartments for a family reunion. These are well appointed with all the things you'll need for preparing meals in the kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The lounge chairs comfortable. The decor is a little bit tired but not an issue as La Barbarie proved to be good value. The staff were... More

On our third stay at the Barbarie we decided to have dinner on the first night and also on Friday and over the weekend. As guests pre-booking dinner we benefitted from a generous reduction in the price of the meal. The first night's rib-eye steak was huge and very tasty but didn't help us sleep well! The best was the... More

We visited for a Saturday lunch. It was very busy but they found us a nice table that wasn't 'in the way'. Food, however, was really good! Large seafood platter, bangers and mash twice, all decent portions and good quality. Gravy was homemade and not too salty unlike so many places. But why does the child's portion get peas and...

Great food, served with pleasure. During the October Tennerfest, you can enjoy a modestly priced menu. Any day, you can choose from the great Table d'Hote. Or you can push the boat out with the A La Carte. Brilliant wines, too, at all prices.
