This was our first visit to Barru. The food was very good. We had Jerk Pork which was satisfyingly spicy and lamb shank which was cooked perfectly; pink and tender. Our starters were also delicious.
Our waitress provided the best service we have experienced for a long time, She looked after us well and even warned us our food may take longer than expected. If it did, we didn't notice because we visited on a Thursday and there was some excellent live music playing. The restaurant has sophisticated decor (imo) and a relaxed atmosphere which led to us thoroughly enjoying the evening. We will definitely return.

Great venue for a party!
for 120 odd guests it was just right..
great service and the place had a really cool vibe to it..
I heard the food was really great although I didn't actually get to see any of it as I was too busy enjoying myself on the dance floor...
there was also an upstairs chillin area for the older guests to chillax
highly recommend this place for party

Nice food, lovely staff. Visited on a Goupon voucher. Previously visited this restaurant in it's old guise of Papparazzi. I had Thai coconut prawns and the sea bass with the addition of new potatoes which were a massive portion. Both courses were good. My husband had the brie wrapped in Parma ham followed by the rib eye steak and chunky chips. The only thing I could really find fault with was that they both needs a little more seasoning but overall a very good meal.

We were given a voucher for Barru as a present. We had never heard of this place and weren't sure about it! However, the whole evening was lovely. The décor and ambience made us welcome right away and we were well-looked after by a waitress and one of the bar staff. The food was excellent - good choice on menu and not too expensive. I would recommend it.
