The restaurant bar is no longer called Barbarella's, and changed some months ago! Some staff changes have also been made, but the chef remains the same and consequently the menu is very similar and just as tempting/appetising.
Really lovely food and great service. Very happy with the meal.
Very friendly and helpful staff, happy to take photos of my friends and I. Food was absolutely delicious and the wine to our liking. Will definately go there again and again and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone and everyone.
Great service. Great food. Great atmosphere. Lovely helpful staff. Lovely surroundings with comfy sofas. What more could you ask for Highly recommended, wouldn't hesitate to dine again when in the area.
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.
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.
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 !
Our first visit and we had a warm welcome from the manager. The place has a nice ambience and decor. The food was excellent and very tasty. I had steak with saute potatoes and roasted vegetables and it was one of the nicest I have had done to perfection. Would highly recommend!
