Description: Bedrock has finally arrived on Aruba with the introduction of Barney’s Bar & Restaurant. Owners Eline & Ron Huijbers introduced this unique style of Barney Rubble style of dining with Flintstone sized portions and great prices. The menu is absolutely fun! Starting with Pebbles Favorite tomato soup, Bronto Saures Ribs, Yabadabadushi Parmesan Groupie , Hang over your plate Snitzel and ends with a Dutch Tompush. Not even to mention the great Kid Menu there is. It`s Food and Fun for Everyone !

“Great dining experience...all the way around!”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

After reading many restaurant reviews of restaurants in Aruba, we finally decided on a casual dinner at Barney's and we would go back again in a heartbeat! The place is very close to the hotel "strip" and was a 5 minute cab ride from the Marriott (where we were staying). Ron greeted us warmly and the small waitstaff was very attentive. My husband had the build your own burger and I had the coconut shrimp. Both meals were DELICIOUS! The side salad vinaigrette had a tasty sweet and sour flavor. The platter of large shrimp (for $22) was perfectly cooked and came with a wonderful red curry sauce for dipping and freshly sautéed veggies. The burger had crispy bacon and melted cheese along with French fries. With two drinks and the two meals listed above our total was $45! This was the best meal we've had on the island at the most affordable price. They also had a delightful piano player (knows Coldplay thru Dolly Pardon) and he was worth the price of admission! We would highly recommend Barney's for a great tasting, casual meal and we will definitely be back.

Reviewed February 3, 2013

This was our first time to this restaurant and will be definitely going back. My husband had the ribs and I had the beef tips stir fried with mushroom. Very good.

“One place you shouldn't miss!!!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We haven been to Barney's several times. Each time gets better and better if that can be possible. If you want that perfect martini Ron is the man. Eline with her beautiful smile greets you and you know you are in good hands. If you go with a large party expect a longer wit but know that each dish will come out piping hot!! From ribs to schnitzel to grilled skewers of pork - all re delicious. I have brought many people there and we all agree if you want a good time with good food go to Barney's. free wifi and a great piano player as well. The servers especially Anna are fabulous. Go and see for yourself and write a review.

“Barney's DISASTER!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

We took a party of 10 to dine at Barney's and were treated like garbage! We had to ask the waitress to take our order and for drink refills. After one and a half hours of waiting we ask the owner to check on our food, he returned to say five more minutes. After twenty minutes and a total of one hour and fifty minutes we left and never ate. The entire staff had a I don't give a big crap attitude. Why risk a bad experience at Barney's with all the great restaurants Aruba has to offer.
