About La Barbe

La Barbe is a truly French Restaurant, established 35 years ago and located opposite the wonderful Priory Park in Reigate, Surrey. La Barbe is a place that is welcoming, friendly and strongly connected to the landscape. We serve fine, freshly cooked French cuisine with a modern twist and every single day we look at inventing new, interesting dishes.

The atmosphere is informally elegant and French through and through, from the genuinely friendly staff to the decor and, most importantly, the delicious food. Chef Patrick Brandao and his team elaborate a new menu every two months, creating an exciting selection of French dishes with a modern twist presented with the flair you would expect in Reigate’s own corner of France. The emphasis is on local ingredients, freshness, flavour and fabulous presentation. Our restaurant wine list offers carefully selected wines some of which organic from most of the different French wine regions but also some excellent new world wines.

We all had a thoroughly excellent meal, and were served by informal, friendly but attentive staff. The atmosphere was not too formal, but certainly in line with the surroundings. I can speak for all of our party when I say we had a very pleasurable experience.

A restaurant for celebratory occasions. Costing more than other establishments in Reigate you get what you pay for. A carefully prepared meal at a fixed price, beautifully prepare and easily digestible. Served by attentive but discrete staff. The only downside being the noise from some of the other diners. All in all a good experience.

We have been coming for many years and although it is now over an hours journey to Reigate, La Barbe never fails and so is still worth that journey.

Really good restaurant. Nice ambience (full but not crowded, pleasant temperature, not too noisy, nice decor). Excellent service. Great food (excellent and not too fussy). Not too expensive. Really good (and I eat out very frequently for work).

Excellent food, superbly executed, and at very fair prices, with superattentive and very friendly service. I doubt there's a better restaurant in the Reigate area. Never disappoints.

A good welcome ,decor plus food all outstanding. We liked the fact that we were in a restaurant but had our own private 'cubicle' which was good for conversations and not so distracted by other customers behaviour. All in all an outstanding restaurant.

It is a few years ago since we last visited La Barbe and we had forgotten just how uniformly good the food is. There was a time when the portions were fashionably small but this is far from an issue now. I like the structure of the menu and its straightforward and clear pricing. The service is at a level that is relatively uncommon these days, and this makes the restaurant a natural choice for a special occasion.

We really enjoyed our evening, the air conditioning was a real bonus in such hot weather. The food was all beautifully presented and delicious, I personally would of enjoyed more of a choice of side vegetables and gluten free options marked on the menu though. The seating lay out makes for an intimate and cosy setting, with the dividers seperating table areas, this just had a small down side of not being able to see it attract the attention of a waiter on occasion. A nice addition was the request to not use mobile phones inside the restaurant. Over all a fabulous meal out.

Excellent experience, food very good,well prepared and presented. Menu choice imaginative ingredients of high quality. Service was great: very informative about the menu and attentive without being overbearing. Not perhaps the budget end of the restaurant price range but the quality of the food and the ambiance makes it worth the cost.

It is always such a pleasure dining here, almost like one needs a special occasion to warrant a visit, but we rarely wait for one! The food is excellent. A family-run ambience with helpful and attentive service. Off the chart. Merci bien
