Housed inside a centuries old building in the sleepy town of Buxton, you will find Barbarellas, the local favourite for anyone’s idea of a great night out - whether that’s dining from an exquisite international menu or just stopping by for a few drinks in a cosy living room ambience. Here in Buxton’s the Quadrant, you can dine your way from Mexico to Thailand, with stops in Italy and Greece, to complete a night of truly diverse cuisine that will truly tantalise your senses. Even if you’re just dropping by to sample their extensive wine and beer selection though, we recommend you book ahead.
Lovely venue, delicious food and well presented and plenty of it. Reasonable prices, good service. In summary a lovely evening out with the family, we will be back...
We had a Sunday lunch here, great atmosphere and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Good sized portions, I can recommend the Tagine. good value for money and will be back on our next visit to Buxton.
From entering the venue staff were very welcoming and personable. The choice of food was varied and when it arrived was amazing. The decor and ambience was ideal for our date-night. We will certainly be back when we visit Buxton. We will highly recommend this Bistro/dinner.
Cosy,warm and welcoming place with great choices on the menu and specials board, also fine drinks selection. Very enjoyable experience and great value as well. Choice of seating from more formal to real relaxation on the arm chairs or sofas I just wish it was nearer home ,wouldn’t eat anywhere else when visiting Buxton.
I booked on line which was easy to do. The welcome we received was friendly and our table was ready. We both chose from the specials board and my Hake Casserole was delicious and my friends chicken was also lovely. We enjoyed a very nice bottle of wine (Macabeo from the wine list) and she had a dessert. I am GF and there were choices for me marked on the menu, but the dish I chose off the specials board was also GF. However apart from Eton Mess there was not dessert available for me (even good old ice cream had honey comb in it), so sad to miss out on a dessert. We enjoyed our visit to Barbarellas and would happily go again.
Our experience last Monday lunch at Barbarellas. Firstly, our friends who hadn't been before commented on how very pleasant the room was. Secondly, everyone was very impressed with the excellent menu and first class food. And thirdly, the young lady who served our table was so polite, pleasant and attentive to our requirements. Overall we had a brilliant lunch. Oh! nearly forgot, the wine was also excellent.
We arrived early and as the restaurant was very quiet, they accommodated us. There was no necessity to actually book! The reception was friendly and the service was reasonably fast once they got going. The menu was very restricted as it was Sunday and roast dinners were being promoted. Three of us had Soup and the fourth had the Mushrooms with Stilton and they were quite pleasant. Two ordered the Lamb Roast, one the Turkey Roast and one the Nut Roast. The Nut Roast was very enjoyable as was the Turkey. My Lamb however was a little fatty and chewy. I complained and was given a small dish with extra Lamb & gravy. The meat was not cooked on the premises and is not 'off the bone'. Lamb is my favourite meat and this cut was generally disappointing. We finished with Coffees. The bill for the four of us was just under £70 including drinks. We would return again when the full menu is available because our individual experiences were mixed.
Classy clean place , friendly attentive staff, great menu and reasonably priced too ! Barbarellas was recommended to us by a friend which is exactly what we have been doing too !
We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening to celebrate my husband's birthday. The staff were so welcoming and obliging and the surroundings were relaxed and special. The food was to die for! I recommend the Vietnamese salad for an exceptional meal. Thanks for making the day such a success!
Went here a couple of years ago when visiting Buxton and it is still every bit as good. The food is first rate, sensibly priced, and there is a choice of decent wines to help it all down. Highly recommended
