“Superb!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I visit family in Montreuil Bellay four or five times a year and the Barbican is my absolute favourite place to eat! Sumptuous good food and wine! Great moules, amazing chocolate mousse and delicious pâté. The presentation is fantastic and anyone who has has cause to complain must be in the minority as I've never had a bas meal here in ten years! C'est magnifique! The rillet salad is to die for when they have it on the specials board! Friendly, reasonably priced, lovely staff! Fully of locals which just goes to show how good it actually is!!

“What a great place to eat and take in the views of the chateau.”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We have eaten here on several occasions and each time it has been good. Have been with my daughter who is a vegetarian and they have been helpful. Sat outside with views of the chateau is lovely. Food has always been prepared just how we like it....French.

“tirama-mi-su”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

This restaurant is opposite the castle,it is nicely positioned BUT the service is poor. I ordered a . dessert. When it arrived the dessert resembled a pink blob with sponge fingers and spray cream. I told the waitress that this was not a tira-mi-su, she insisted that it was! She did not offer an alternative. When the bill arrived I asked her to remove it l. She called the owner who flatly refused to take it off the bill. the food was mediocre, service poor and expensive.

“Wonderful Food!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We have eaten at La Barbacane many times and never been disappointed - superb food, lovely presentation along with polite and efficient service. This is all enhanced by a super view across the road of the stately medieval castle. We thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
