Ok - the outside isn't the most glam, but you should never as they say judge a book by its cover:)
Upon walking in it has that very old rustic style, it has stories everywhere on the walls/tables about Barney Duffeys and Norfolk Island. Poor bugger, after hiding out in a tree for 7 years and they still killed him.

Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, our meals very tasty, flavorsome and cooked to perfection. Its not as pricey as some of the other restaurants on Norfolk good value for money.

We went to this restaurant on our second night on the island. We ended up going back another 2 times. The service was first class, the food was delicious, and it was excellent value for money. We had both seafood and steak, smoked ribs, and deserts. Everything was cooked to perfection. Their seafood chowder is magnificent, as was the banana crepe that we tried on our last visit. Would definitely recommend this establishment on all levels.

We both enjoyed our meals at Barney Duffys. The meals were tasty and cooked to our liking, and the staff attentive. Overall it was a good night out and we considered we got good value for money at this restaurant. Very interesting story too about the convict Barney Duffy.

My wife and I visited this restaurant twice on our holiday and enjoyed our meals each time. We tried both meat and seafood meals and were not disappointed. The steaks were tender and cooked medium per our request. I had ribs one night. they were plentiful and so very tender. Also, the local seafood was delightful. The staff were very accommodating and we had a nice talk to the owner chef Paul after one meal. I would recommend this restaurant.

We didn't like this restaurant at all. My medium rump steak was overcooked and dry, my husband's ribs were dry and the sauces tasted like they were out of a packet. My husband also found a maggot in his side salad. Not a good experience. Worst meal we had on Norfolk Island.
