We had the opportunity to enjoy both tasting menus - “95% caviar” at the beginning of this year and also “95% seaweed” just last week. Once again we decided in favor of wine pairing. One of the best wines I have ever had, that is...for sure! I was pleasantly surprised that for both of the tasting menus we had, both of the head chefs came to our table so we could have a little chat. For the “95% caviar” dessert I cannot hide that I had a little tear in my eyes. With wine together it was remarkable! All my love goes to the chefs! I feel like each subsequent tasting menu is more and more focused on the details. I don’t want to ruin it for you by telling details, so you will have to come yourself! 😊 Round of applause to both the kitchen and front house! I had never felt so welcomed and loved in a restaurant like it is in the Barents! Definitely one of my favourite places!More

Nice cozy place. Not too much space, just 3- 4 tables and the bar. However, for us it was mostly a plus. The best oysters in town. Perfect wine selection What I liked the most - staff. Educated, respectful and knowledgeable. If you need any...recommendations about the menu - they will fully explain you everythingMore

What a splendid place. If you want to have an amazing evening this is a place to go. A great variety of sea foods and fantastic service. I also must add that the interior is like a work of art. Very sophisticated place. I especially...enjoyed watching the open kitchen. The cocktails were remarkable. I was so impressed I held a birthday party here 2 weeks after my first visit.More

Fine dining at it's best. The entrée was astonishing. The ingredients selected are truly of the best quality and with each bite I was delving into a finely crafted adventure of taste by their expert chefs.

We came to experience a lovely evening with great food and wine. Instead we were blown away by the amazing creativity of the chefs, the flavor and concept idea of the tasting menu "95% caviar". The wine pairing was exceptional and long to be remembered....Even though the seating was not fully booked, the service was so on point that overall ambience scored 9 out of 10 us. It is an expensive treat, but well worth a visit at least once a year!More

It’s a great experience. The ambiance is very elegant and charming. Amazing wines, food and service. Menu is meticulously crafted and seasonal to a particularly high standard, definitely fine dining. If you decide to treat yourself to the tasting menu, do yourself a favor and...get the wine pairing with it (or if you don't drink, they also have an amazing non-alcoholic drink pairing). Staff are extremely knowledgeable and they truly care about your experience. Highly recommend!More
