Lovely place in s great location. Very comfortable and the food is great. Happy hour in the lounge is 1700-1800. Just be prepared to pay a premium.

Quick drink, good service, awesome atmosphere, it's Morocco style and I went there over the last ten years and never wrote a review, felt like writing one today. Enjoy!

A bustling restaurant located at the edge of the People's Square gardens, provides for juxtaposition of the serene and the buzzing of crowded spaces. The food and service are sufficient, while the location makes Barbarossa ideal for a lunch spot.

上海に住む前は出張ベースで年数回上海に来ており数年前まで出張の度利用していました。ある日を境に行き方を忘れてしまい、店名も覚えておらず行くことができませんでした。しかし偶然にも最近ネットで見つけることができ、再訪致しました。 最初は一階でお食事を頂き、その後二階のバーでゆっくり致しました。 一階ですが、正直味が変わったか否かは覚えておりません。店員さんたちはマナーが良く笑顔で一階はほぼ全員英語が話せました。店員さんのオススメでツナを一皿頂きましたが、上海では珍しく新鮮で驚きました。魚介のパスタも魚介類が新鮮で麺に魚介のエキスが染み込んでおり美味しかったです。上海ではお金を出してもさして新鮮でもなく美味しくないので重宝したいお店になりました。ちなみに一階のお手洗いは汚くありませんでした。 二階は雰囲気は変わっていなく、お酒もまぁ悪くないのでゆっくりするにはいいかな、と思いこちらも重宝するつもりです。 一階と二階合わせて二人で800-900元使った気がします。 I had business trip to Shanghai several times a year before I have started to live in Shanghai. I'd visited this restaurant each time till several years ago till I suddenly forgot the way how to go there and the...More

Their service has taken a nose dive from their earlier days. You cannot order any hot tea or coffee on the 2nd floor, so even if you are with alcohol drinking friends and are ordering food and rounds of drinks the waiter will refuse to...More

Lovely location. pleasant walk through the park, which is totally safe to do at night. If you fancy Mediterranean food, it's fine . chicken Caesar salad decent enough . Good service. Full of bright young things, felt a bit of a dinosaur

Barbarossa has a great location in the middle of People's Park and for a city that is always busy and bustling, it is nice to find a quiet spot in the middle of it all. I had a cocktail before dinner which was well-priced and...More
