A local treasure and a delight to us and all of our friends and family we have brought here.
Dinner was good we tried a few appetizers and a cous cous meal and a vegetable meal. The meals were plentiful and delicious. We had to wait a bit for our order to be taken and it was not busy at all. The servers seemed to be chatting a lot together. However everyone was very pleasant and once they realized we were a little frustrated they paid us more attention. They offered us mint tea at the end but we were too full to take advantage. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would return.
Authentic tagines, wonderful flavors, moderately priced.
Restaurant took our reservation. We arrived to a shut restaurant with gates down and no one around. Unbelievably unprofessional.
Food is consistently good!!
Extremely friendly and attentive wait staff, delicious and fresh food, clean and all around a nice restaurant.
We always enjoy Barbes' authentic cuisine and charming atmosphere. The pastilla is just incredible, a nice combination of sweet and savory, and their chicken tagine is also great. The barbes special cocktail is almost like a mojito, minty and refreshing. They have a good selection of wines as well. Service is friendly and helpful and although they are small, it never feels too crowded.
We went to Barbes for my birthday. The food was incredible! Tried the grilled calamari salad. It was fantastic. We loved the tangines, especially the couscous morocaine traditionelles. Finished with chocolate soufflé that was the best. Will return again soon.
When you're tired of French, Italian, California, tc., & are looking for something different, Moroccan Cuisine might be your answer. Food was interesting, well-prepared & delicious. We loved it!
I was so disappointed. While the atmosphere of Barbes is as adorable and cozy as it always has been, our food was awful. The chicken tagine was tough and dry with no flavor whatsoever, let alone anything like the spices of a tagine. A huge number of my moules were not open and he sauce was tasteless. The wait staff were a good blend of polite and attentive but we were pushed to buy a wine over $7o barely after we sat down.
I hope this was an unusual experience--but I certainly won't risk going again anytime soon.
