Good location, poor food, slow service. A dish costs 85 to 100 nis which is fair, but normally in this kind of style restaurant one can expect a wide range of salads.

this restaurant is divided into 3 locations across from each other on ben yehuda we were in the smaller one on the eastern side. anyway everything is positive in this cosy fish eatery - nothing fancy or gourmet , just a basic tasty fish \ salads \ beer - fresh mediterranean eatery. great service and value - definitely worth visiting

I really like the fish and salads at Barbunia, it's fresh and tasty. I don't care for the service or the setting. I realize service in Israel is not the greatest but she threw the silverware on the table which I didn't like at all. The setting is nothing special either the chairs are uncomfortable and the restaurant is not... More

We were waiting for some time with other people until an appropriate sitting was found for us. The food - fish and salads - was very fresh and tasty, and the service were... More

Fresh salads and fish! Neighborhood restaurant serving grilled fish and all the Israeli salads. Only tourist in the place. Friendly service and nice neighborhood feel.

Slow service, but food is good. Fish is deliciously cooked, but mind the bones. Casual atmosphere... no rush. Salad is excellent... Well, this is Israel!
