It's lovely that La Barbarie is open again, with some familiar faces among the staff. Our scallops, crab bisque, brill and lamb cutlets were out of this world! Good wines too available by the glass. A really good evening there, thank you!

Always eat here when in Guernsey. Lunch menu very good value, with a choice of two or three courses, or choose daily specials from 'the board'....or go 'A La Carte'. Staff charming and attentive.

The restaurant in the hotel is amazing! friendly, attentive staff- nothing is too much trouble. We have visited this restaurant on an annual basis for the last 9 years and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent - cooked to perfection - I cannot praise the Chef enough

This was excellent. Whilst staying at the hotel the TennerFest was available. This started as two courses of a tenner although over time... More

Unrushed, Friendly, Accomodating and well worth a visit. We had the benefit of the "Tennerfest" menu which is great value. Excellent food, good wine selection at sensible prices. The restaurant is set out with different areas to enhance the private dining experience.

There is a certain charm to this hotel from the moment you walk in there is a smile and a welcome. More menu options that you can shake a stick at, from the summer Seafood menu to catch of the day to a la carte and table d'hote. Add to all that an extensive wine list and we sat for... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our 5 day stay in Guernsey. On both occasions we were delighted with the choice and quality of the food! The staff are wonderful. The only problem we had was obtaining a booking at a very popular restaurant- deservedly so.

My wife dined at La Barbarie during our week in the Channel Islands. We chose the restaurant after reading the reviews and studying the online menus. We were also influenced by Rick Stein's comment that the lobster was the best he had ever tasted. We were therefore determined to try the lobster so when we telephoned to make our reservation...

Dear Margaret Thank you for your review. I am sorry that your evening started in this way. It is very unusual for guests to sit at any random table before we open the Restaurant at 5.30 pm. My receptionist should have been clearer and shown you to the bar where you would have been looked after till the restaurant opened.... More
