Has a small entrance then up a metal staircase to a small but cozy restaurant. Guaranteed a warm welcome by the friendly staff. A great menu at very affordable prices. Will not comment on individual dishes, suffice to say everything we had was very authentic,...More

I don’t normally write reviews but today I just had to. I walked through the barbicans and had delicate delights of food. I got the starter and main course.It was delicious. The food came quickly. I would recommend to come here.

I went around the barbicans of Plymouth with my family at six to find this restaurant. I went in and I met a woman who led us to a table of four. We were presented with prawn crackers and fancy menus. One minute later, we...More

I'm unable to review the food here as we didn't stay. There was a funny smell throughout the place, which incidentally was deserted. The toilets were perhaps the dirtiest I have ever seen, hair all over the floor from an attempt at mopping. My partner...More

Starter was ok although they didn't have first 2 things we asked for. Mains were meat dishes but mostly packed with sloppy veg. Found a hair in one of the mains so they took it off the bill, had no intention to pay for something...More

I've been here several times now. It always seems to be open when everywhere else is closed, which is a real bonus on a quiet night. It is like walking back into an eclectic mix of 70's and 80's decor but thats no bad thing...More

We visited here as we’d been several years ago and the food had been nice; it’s not a cheap restaurant but average for the Barbican. The food was lovely, the waitresses weren’t very happy and only one of them paid us any attention. The food...More
