Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I came to Barbounya for the first time this Saturday night. We arrived about 30 minutes early, but they sat us at a very cool mini-table in the front corner. The atmosphere was festive and happy, dimly lit with interesting music. Servers were great. The cocktails were interesting - loved the vodka-soda with a mint+anais addition. Food was very good. Favorites included the crispy kale and the lamb skewers. Great vibe - interesting layout inside. We will definitely be back."

  • "Food is excellent, a bit expensive, but overall probably worth it. Service is friendly, but distinctly ingenuine - like being served by salesmen."

  • "Ambiance is great, service is great, food is excellent, but not memorable and a little overpriced"

  • "Food was great! But the loud technoish soundtrack, making it sound like Bily Kun, was annoying. The service staff should learn to be informative without sounding pretentious and pompous."

  • "After not being back for,a few months we tried Barbouyna again and were not disappointed. The atmosphere and decor are most pleasing and the dishes are all delicious. Our waiter Avery was a delight and most knowledgeable about the wines . He suggested a white wine from Switzerland, of all places! that was so complimentary to our choice of tapas which was mainly fish. The oysters were fresh and the accompanying salsa electrifying. Such a marvelous combination. The grilled octopus tender and juicy, the zucchini veggie lasagna and the mouhamara were also top notch and the duck magret succulent. We will be back in less than a few months!"

  • "We had a nice evening at BarBounya! I am a big fan of chef Fisun Ercan and was happily surprised by the fare offered on the menu... The tastes are farther from her restaurant Su (which I like to say it is very turkish) which was fun for me and yet you see her signature. All is prepared with a lot of finesse and I would say respect for the food... The service was good; I would not say particularly attentive but very courteous and polite. I recommend it to try for sure!!"

  • "Turkish tapas taken to a new level. Fantastically flavorful food. Common ingredients become sublime. Endive, red cabbage and citrus salad--sounds ordinary? It was absolutely sublime with a citrus dressing and marinated cabbage. Duck magret crusted in a unique spice blend, kale tempura with warm yogurt sauce and roasted tomatoes, grilled mushrooms and haloumi cheese. The meal was fantastic and the service was absolutely top notch. Friendly waiters who check back regularly and know their menu. Can't wait to go back and try everything else on the menu"

  • "Despite the noise, we (four friends) were able to hold a conversation. Sitting at a long bar rather than tables was quite unusual, but it worked. Service was good and the food was superb! The same chef/owner as Su in Verdune, she has outdone herself here at Barbounya. Although each dish (served in relatively small but abundant portions) was remarkable, the lakerda was by far the best we've tasted outside of Turkey."

  • "A Montreal food blog recommended this place highly. The noise level was high and the seating consisted of long shared tables. Not the right ambience for us. The fish dish was excellent. The pork belly and salad were OK. With all the good food restaurants in Montreal we probably won't go back on a return trip."

  • "Great location good food (tasty), but the portions are way to small for the price. iIwas still hungry at the end of the meal. i enjoyed the dessert: vanilla and pistacchio cake with yogurt topping. I ordered the muhammara but didn't taste nuts at all... unfortunately."

  • "The tapas style of the resto allows your group to enjoy many of the great dishes at this resto. The eggplant was perfection, the endives salad was delish and original, with the endives being grilled, and mixed with walnuts and strong cheese, and the fried chitters were to die for. Definitely will return. Also of note, the wiater was just outstanding, ameniable to all of our requests, helpful, just a delight to deal with."

  • "Recommended to us by coworkers and friend, we had great excitement for our first experience especially realizing it was during TasteMTL. Arriving for our 6:15 reservation, we were ecstatic to receive our meal. Appetizers came nearly 45 mins later; we decided to see past it as it was a busy night and he parties beside us didn't receive their food. Receiving our main course 1hr later (and after the parties beside us had finished theirs), we were hungry, frustrated and wanted to leave. A simple status inquiry during our wait was repeated as "It'll be about 2 mins" (for about 30 mins). Attitude of our 2 servers was less than sympathetic, and our portions were not equal to our neighbors. The food was good, but the experience was disappointing."

  • "Great restaurant and unique atmosphere. Extremely pleasant and helpful staff. Visiting Montreal and wanted a different experience. Kind of like a tapas bar... but Turkish, so unfamiliar dishes to us. Lots of vegetarian choices. Very interesting and delicious seafood. Only downside, was rather pricey for amount of food (for 3 females, total 9 dishes plus 5 gl wine = $ 67 each, incl tax, but not incl tip)"

  • "How to describe Barbounya in 2 words. Great. Quick. Your mezzes are brought so fastto the tabel that you are left after 40 minutes with a pile of plates in from of you, and a ruined appetite from trying to enjoy everything while it's still Hot. The great food is ruined by the extremely efficient (too edficient and fast to everyone's liking at our table, even the neighbours!). Surprising as the maître d' and the chef are well-versed in the food industry. Maybe something to improve as the food is very good, but not totally inexpensive for portion size."
