Always a great choice! Excellent food and service and good value.
Very delicious food. Dauphinoise potato was to die for! Service was also excellent. We also had a hard time deciding the wine from the extensive list, but settled on just the right one. We will be back!
Excellent restaurant. Staff, food and atmosphere are brilliant. Never disappointed. The best place to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends and family. Variety in choice of dishes at an affordable price, beautifully presented, ensures my recommendation to anyone who wants a great time.
One of the best lunches ever!! The duck entrée was fantastic and service very prompt and attentive. My guests were more than satisfied. Excellent sweets and coffee.
Great service and nice ambiance despite us not having the best table (we booked late on the same day so I suppose we were lucky to get a table at all so can't complain too much!). Food was good but not as refined as it could've been for the prices charged (Vension was slightly overcooked for my taste despite asking for medium rare). However, I would happily recommend La Barbe. It's as good as Toby Tobin's (just down the road on Reigate High Street) if not marginally better due to the slightly more romantic setting and what we felt was a fairly authentic French decor. Overall I would say La Barbe is the best choice in the area. I'm sure we'll be back.
Our 2nd visit - on Father's Day - and we thought it was even better than the 1st. It was much busier than our first midweek lunch visit, but the layout of the restaurant means that it never feels crowded and it was a lovely atmosphere. The set menu was excellent value for money, bearing in mind the quality of the food. The four of us had one each of the four choices for starters and mains - each was beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. There were three takers for the trio of desserts and I tried the vanilla and blackberry vacherin. None of us was disappointed. Another fantastic visit. Plan to take my parents when they next come to stay. Thank you to everyone at La Barbe for making it such an enjoyable occasion
We visited this genuinely French restaurant for lunch. It was not very busy. There was an excellent lunchtime menu plus extra dishes of the day. The service was good if a little slow as I suspect that our chosen items were cooked fresh. There was a two course or three course option for a fixed price. Wine was averagely priced and good.The atmosphere was pleasant and unhurried. I suspect that the main business is in the evenings and at the weekends. We have visited for lunch on a Saturday in the past. The meal then was very enjoyable and the place much busier. I would recommend La Barbe as a good place for a treat
We had a splendid birthday meal. The menu was interesting so we were definitely spoilt for choice and the champagne was an excellent accompaniment to the food! We particularly like the atmosphere at La Barbe. The interior designer has been very clever dividing the rooms into smaller intimate areas so you never feel crowded by other people. Altogether a first-class venue and a wonderful evening.
This was our first visit to La Barbe for my husband's birthday and we weren't disappointed. Great service, lovely atmosphere and absolutely fantastic food! My husband was 'over the moon' with his Provencal beef stew, describing it as the best main course he'd had in ages. Will certainly be visiting again, particularly as my husband noticed the special menu for Father's Day!
Just like going to a good restaurant in France. This was our first visit, we went midweek and it was fully booked, I can see why. The staff were very welcoming, service was friendly and efficient throughout. The room is split into smaller areas with screens, Japanese style, so you feel quite private. The menu has plenty of choice and is informative with wine recommendations for every course. The food was excellent, portions were generous and everything was beautifully presented. I can't fault anything, we'll definitely be going back.
