“Poor quality food”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

Poor quality ingredients cooked badly. Cocktails were poor imitations of menu pictures. Steaks were large but full of gristle and tasteless. Sauces were thin & watery. Only a few french fries served & they were poor quality. Food portions were small but reasonable. Service was ok. Not much else to say.

“Terrible”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We ordered tagliatella carbonara, since we ate the same at another restaurant the day before and it was delicious! We were looking forward to another pasta meal that good, but it wasn't. Not even close. It tasted horrible, I have never eaten pasta that bad!! We stated our climplaint and I think the owner or manager or something came to the table and he really could use a de lessons in customer service!! He waved away our complaint, it was not his fault we didnt like it, the pasta was fine according to him. There was nothing he wanted to do, he brought us thee bill and we had to pas for something we only had 1 bit of (it made us feel sick after 1 bite already!)
We eventually ate somewhere else, for half the price, 3 times more food and it was delicious!!
It was not a touristic place, even though it was a 2 minute walk, but my advice; if you want good food for a good price, go to the places where you see hardly any tourists!!

“Beach & Marina Views”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We had an early dinner at Barnabier. Nice view of the marina and very convenient to the beach and the Hotel Arts. There were very few customers so we had our choice of tables outdoors. Service was prompt once we were seated. There is a tapas "package" for 16.50 Euros per person that was quite good. There are no choices of the tapas if you choose this option but it was good and the food was served hot. Overall, we enjoyed our meal there.

“Low quality food”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

Had a margarita pizza here and it was served within minutes. Cheese on top had not melted properly and I think it was just a microwave pizza served half cooked. Fruit juice was bottled and not fresh

Dear client:

Thanks for your comment.

About the juice, if you order a fresh orange juice, we do immediately, but unfortunately the fruit juices are bottled, but you could have asked for another drink when saw the bottle.

The service was efficient and the food was good. The lobster paella was great, it was fresh and in the shell.
