We arrived just after morning brunch. Food was very good, but I could have prepared and cooked it faster myself. Not once did the manageress ask us how the service or food was.

Thank you for the review. At The Gourmet Barn we prepare our foods fresh with every order to ensure quality, we then tend to run a bit slow on the food services when we trade during the busy seasons and long weekends. We love our customers and for future reference we will ensure that personal touch with every customer.

We waited over hour for our American platter. Most of the items (beef kebabs, ribs and calamari) were ice cold. The stinky chicken strips were pieces of chicken in a curry sauce in a bowl. No one came to ask how our food was or if we needed more drinks. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and a cute athomsphere just such disappointing service and food.

Thank you for the review. As owner of the bistro I am a bit concerned regarding some of the food descriptions in the review, because At The Gourmet Barn we ensure quality food and freshness with every order preparation. As for the food been served cold I as owner have attended to this matter. We will also ensure better service in the future when it comes to our guests well being.

My family and I visited the newly refurbished Gourmet Barn and were astounded by the great, fresh food. The aroma of freshly baked pies and bread ropes one in and the fireplace is the cherry on top.

The service was a bit disappointing, and the waitresses were not very attentive.

This was of a minor concern and was more than made up for by the excellent food.

Definitely a spot I'll visit again and again.
