    The happy hour and early bird specials make it affordable. Great food and service. Recommend the grouper and the chicken alfredo.

    Seating and initial drink orders are sometimes slow, as this is a popular restaurant but once food is ordered, very efficient. Owners very cordial, always overseeng, and staff is cheerful & friendly. All seem glad that customers are there. Quirky Flintstones decor is fun. Good cocktails, reasonable wine list, comfortable environment. Interesting combination of Dutch comfort food and local fish & vegetables. Always good. Leave room for dessert! We like that water is served WITHOUT PLASTIC STRAWS and leftovers are boxed in biodegradable boxes instead of styrofoam. Other local establishments should take note.

    Finally got a chance to swing by Barney's. Decent menu with lots to choose from. My wife liked her chicken Schnitzel which had 2 pretty decent sized pieces of chicken. I tried the Italian Grouper, which was also good. Server was OK. Friendly, but not overly attentive. Never stopped back after the food was delivered, even though he passed by the table many times. Prices are par for the course for the island and no service charge is added.

    Very disappointed on our first visit to Barney's. Order did not print in kitchen, and after 1 hour wait, and seeing others served. Felt they then rushed to cook our meal. Chicken in fajitas order was dry and at bit burnt. Red snapper flavour was good, but fish was dry. Wrong sauce also served with fish. Will not recommend or make at return visit. Barney's was kind enough to provide us with a drink on the house, but, unfortunately we were still disappointed.

    Not the same as in past years, food small and poor quality. Asked for a large draft beer as in past years. Received a Balishi nip. Asked owner/bartender why I didn't get a large draft, he replied he was all out? Waitress said nothing when we ordered, just served the small bottle. Food, pork snitzel dry and over cooked. Last visit, won't go back.

    We arrived as a group of 6 with a reservation. So many reservations had been taken that, after waiting 30 minutes without knowing if / when we could be seated, we left. We had been looking forward to trying this restaurant but we never got the chance.

    Good quality food and plenty of it. They have since changed their menu since we last went. Used to be all you can eat specials on different days of the week. Still good food though.

    Lots of food at a price consistent with the Aruba area. We had Snitzel and local fish which was excellent and plentiful. A five minute cab ride from the Marriott hotel which cost $8 for 5 people. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

    Everything about Barney's is what I look for when I am dining out. The service was perfect, the food was delicious and the atmosphere devine. We visited on a all you can eat fajita night and for those in our 9 party group that ordered there were no complaints only happy people and full bellies. I will be going back and I will highly recommend Barney's to anyone who is currently visiting the island and to anyone who will be visiting Aruba in the future. Good job guys keep up the great work.

    We went for all you can eat steak night. The service was excellent but the steaks were very subpar and not cooked to our specifications. They did offer to send back to the kitchen but it was as much about the cut of meat as the temperature. It was represented by our server as filet (not on the menu, but the server when we asked what cut of meat). I am a butcher, I know meat- it was not a filet and it was cut with the grain making the meat chewy. However, the meat was seasoned well and it was surprisingly moist for being well done instead of medium rare, as requested. Other items that came out of the kitchen looked good, like the ribs and fish, if I were to go back, I would order something else. However, there are a lot of restaurants on the island and we will probably try others before heading back.

    The service was very good and the food came really quick (maybe a bit too quick even?). Overall a good experience and we enjoyed our meal here. It kind of had a home-like feeling to it. My boyfriend enjoyed the all you can eat steak night and for me they had a vegetarian option which was okay.
