Unfortunately we had to remind staff to bring a drink we had ordered and later on extra pitta we had asked for next came. It had been put on the bill which we asked to be taken off. A bit disappointing as it was early in the evening so not busy for staff.

After waiting for far too long to order, and then receive our drinks, my mohito was delicious. The food was visually appealing and nice, not fabulous enough really to warrant the prices. The service was shockingly slow, we'd have ordered several more drinks but trying to catch our waitresses eye was massively challenging. When she did come over, while her memory for the food was tremendous, she was rushing off elsewhere before we had a chance to add extra drinks or even finish ordering dessert. Less than impressed.

You should rate the drinks separately to food. Food was great...the cocktails were disappointing 4th visit so far.

The food is average - some of your food combinations do not go. Cocktails were nice. It's a shame you charge £2 for extra pitta bread - when you only send out one pitta bread with a huge amount of dip. It seemed that was deliberate. However, the worst part (and the main reason we won't return or recommend) is the awful smell fro the toilets that wafts up the stairs. Really awful. You need to sort that out.

Food was very nice apart from some dishes gave you 3 of the item (crochettes) which isn't very good when you are a table of 4! Some dishes were expensive for a tapas dish and one dish we ordered didn't turn up. I had to ask for the crumble on the cheesecake as that was missing. The staff were friendly but the service wasn't the best it took a while to attract attention to order desert and drinks and get the bill.

Great food and wine. Nice setting and atmosphere, but the service was pretty slow. Had to ask for water three times and then didn't bring one dish and then said it had finished. Told us a replacement was on the house and then charged us (albeit refunded it when we questioned it) Has the potential to be great, but service needs to improve

Food was good but service was very very slow three times we had to go and find someone and ask for service. Most staff very friendly. It was very busy, looks good in there though and along with good food nice drinks menu. All in all good night

We had a really enjoyable meal out with friends on a Saturday night. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were really friendly. Some of the drinks were a it slow to be brought to the table but it wasn’t too much of a problem. But I would say that I felt the size of some of the dishes was a bit disappointing. Most people go out for dinner with 1 or 3 other people. Serving dish of 3 crochettes just seems silly to me when it’s designed to be shared. Having said that, all the food we had was really delicious and we enjoyed everything we ordered.

I would certainly go back to Barberellos as it has all the right ingredients but they just need to gel more. Atmosphere is great although we did have a very loud table beside us but we waited a very long time for both drinks & food & for some dishes it’s not great value. Booking service is also all over the place. Wouldn’t go back but not as a group of 8
