Super accommodating staff- we didn’t have a booking but staff were awesome and sat us immediately even though they looked super busy! Food and service were amazing, was a really nice end to the night after seeing the lights in town. Definitely recommend, will be...back!! :)More

The entrees were lovely however, When the mains came out, 2 people of the group got their food at least 10 minutes before the other 2 got theirs. We didn’t have any server come up to us throughout the night (I’m not sure if they...were short staffed or what) but no one came to check in to see if our food was okay or if we needed any refills on our drinks. My partner then proceeds to go up to the bar to order another drink, then a server said she’ll be over shortly. I then proceeded to get a Virgin Mojito…. Then when it comes out my partner tries it and says there’s alcohol in it. I can’t have alcohol as I am pregnant. Was not impressed.More

Great food and very friendly helpful staff. A little confused by the GF stance though as are there twice in past few weeks and first time was told GF food cooked separately- second time told same fryer … same dish! No side effects so all...good! Have good selection of gins - so good for the person who doesn’t drink wine!More

Fabulous food. Great service. Duck salad was amazing. Very generous portions. Shame not busier. However under the circumstances great to see People out

The place is ok, and the entree is nice, we order the schezuan fried squid and pull pork croquettes, it was delicious, the pulled pork inside is tasty and soft, i can even finish all of it without sharing with my husband, the squid is...soft and perfectly marinated with garlic and salt i think. but our main meals is not so nice, we order the duck breast and its not meeting our expectation, its dry. the cured salmon with beetroot salad is average to. the staff is very helpful and nice too.More

First time dining, absolutely loved the food && the concept of the shared plates. I’m dairy free so my partner and I basically ordered one of everything that was dairy free and it was BEAUTIFUL! First time ever having duck and it was probably my...favourite dish! My partner loved the venison. Pineapple Cocktail was super yummy! Will be backMore

We loved your restaurant from the food and cocktails to the service! We loved the variation on the menu, our favourites were the Venison Tartare, Ceviche and the Short Rib - all stunning! Thanks for a great night out!

We really enjoyed our meals and especially appreciated the staff assistance arranging a number of dishes to exclude allergens. This is a big ask as it was onions and garlic, but they did it and the food was still delicious. We will definitely be back.

I have now dined at Barberra three times and it has been an outstanding experience on each occasion. The food was exquisite and the service impeccable. Thank you so much for an outstanding evening.

Superb food and service with an ability to match your appetite to the generous tapa sized offerings. Every dish was to savour.
