“Great value, great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 24, 2014

We stumbled on Barbes, and I'm glad we did. Wonderful tangines, great appetizers, and reasonably priced by Switzerland standards. Keep in mind that as Switzerland's restaurants attempt to crack down on smoking, the smokers are heading to the outdoor tables, so if you want to spare yourself that, sit inside!

“We will go again!”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Went there on Friday with reservation (about 20 seats for dining and about 12 at the bar). The staff is very friendly and the service very good! We enjoyed a mezze plate combination and meat. Everything was nicely prepared, spiced, tasty! Overall a great arabic/ oriental place, with a lot of atmosphere, delicious food and a great value!
P.S. the toilet is a must see :)

“just great !!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

great mezze plate, great value for little money and VERY friendly service. small place but very cosy. outside you sit on the pathway which however is interesting to sit and just watch people going by.
it's located in the 'new town' area, surrounded by many other bars and restaurants, nice to walk around, with little unique shops and where the locals are.
reservation recommended.

“great Mezze plate”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

They serve a great Mezze plate here that is great value for money. Have eaten it many times and it's always delicious.
It's small so reserve a table to make sure you can eat here.
