Was treated to a staff Xmas lunch at La Barbe - although restaurant was empty to begin was very full when we left. Staff handled the 14 of us well and were always on hand. Had very starter of salmon pate and mains of duck although the Xmas pudding could have benefited from a smothering of cream / custard rather... More

Went for a family birthday meal here. There are several great restaurants in the area but the food here is top quality. Not cheap but a price you'd expect for such great food and service. Not an every day venue but great for a special occasion

This was my third visit within 12 months. The first was excellent (Dec 15); the second was only average (July 16); this time was better than the last. It was a business dinner so we had an early reservation. The menu was as tempting as ever and we all found satisfying selections of starters, mains and desserts, including from a... More

Having driven past many times decided to take the plunge and see if what I had heard about the food was valid. "Mon died" - it was excellent, from the moment we walked (friendly welcome) to the fund we had with the waiter, to the excellent food and wine. The Filet Mignon de Porc Bardé à la Ventrèche, Crumble de... More

La Barbe never fails. The food is worthy of a Michelin star, the service is impeccable and it's just the best French restaurant this side of the English Channel. We are very lucky to have La Barbe as a restaurant in Reigate. When I recently called to ask for a table for Christmas, they told me they were full. Nothing... More

Excellent service and great food. Stands out as an authentically French experience - all the staff are French and very knowledgeable about the menu choices. The food was expertly prepared and portions were just right. The wine list is good and the upper-end Bordeaux's are fairly priced. Service was perfect - not rushed and not overbearing but there exactly when... More
