I heard that their duck confit spaghetti is amazing, so decided to have dinner with my boyfriend there. It was a bit hard to find, so don't get lost everyone. It's next to Yokocho (which is next to the book store at the corner). I usually don't eat duck, but their duck confit spaghetti was absolutely delicious! I can eat it three times a day. Thanks to their check-in special, I could taste their pintxos and the shrimp was fresh, boosting my appetite for sure. We ordered two different red wines. One was the wine that we can taste at any other places (but was good enough), and the other one was so new to us! We really enjoyed it a lot. It's a beautiful place from both outside and inside, very cozy and romantic. Servers are also nice. It was such a lovely night and I'll visit again sometime soon. *The portion of food is a bit small. Be aware of that before you go!

Food was great. service was kind of slow, perhaps because I dined outside on the patio.

We had lunch this afternoon at The Barrel. We have had brunch there many times, but this was the first time having lunch. The service was excellent, a very sweet waitress who was most attentive. The food was delicious and priced very reasonable. The hot food was hot, which was a treat because that is not always the case, and the coffee was wonderful. I recommend The Barrel for brunch and lunch also. Next time we will try going for dinner..Enjoy...Bon Apetite!

We had the most wonderful prix fix brunch at The Barrel. The food was excellent and the presentation lovely. We are looking forward to going for dinner, also. We highly recommend the restaurant. The ambiance is just lovely...The woods and the tree trunks on the ceiling with plants are beautiful. They have sculptures on the wall that serve as wine holders. The service was a little slow unfortunately.Not sure why as they were not extremely busy at all. But the waitstaff was extremely pleasant and very patient. You are not rushed. You can not beat the price and the value..but more importantly is that the food was just delicious! Can't wait to go back.

We've eaten at the Barrell many times over the past year and very much enjoyed it. Last night we went after about a month's absence. It was as if we went to a different restaurant. We ordered six tapas (three hot and three cold) for dinner and all were bad to inedible. What they call 'tapas' now are mostly small plates of concoctions bearing no relation at all to Spanish or European tapas either is conception or taste. They were also brought to the table at the same time. We may try it again in month because it was really a good, fun restaurant before. But really, on this visit it was awful.

Four of us went to brunch on a rainy Saturday and it was delicious! I had the Galette Breton Complet which sounded interesting and did not let down. The crepe like meal came with a salad, fruit and some hash browns. In addition to the bread basket, coffee/tea and alcoholic drink. For the price, this was not to be beat. The omelets and deconstructed salad both got rave reviews. We lingered for quite a while and never felt rushed. I will be going back.
