Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Barbar opened up around 1.5 years ago on Ship Street in Wanchai. They serve Spanish cuisine in an urban but casual setting. Menu is a good range of tapas and related dishes, wine and drink selection is fair. Opening hours are 12pm to 3pm (lunch)...and 6pm to 11pm (dinner) on weekdays and 12pm to 11pm on weekends. Our recent lunch here was ok. Liked the environs and the open kitchen setup, all dishes served were decent, nothing outstanding nor bad. Truffle Manchego and padron peppers tasted like they were supposed to. Octopus was served sliced on a heavy bed of potatoes. Too many potatoes and not enough tentacle but otherwise, this dish was fine. We also tried the pigeon rice with foie gras prepared and served in a paella pan. The rice was surprisingly oily, distracted a bit from the very good taste of the pigeon and foie gras. Not sure if this is what they were aiming but we both felt it affected the texture of the dish too much. Wine ordered on the day was fine. Service was polite and everything was served in a timely fashion. On the whole, not a bad meal but nothing real stood out on the day but nothing particularly bad either. It is an easy place to dine and family friendly so worth considering if dining in the Wanchai and considering Spanish options in the area.More

Food was okay. I would rate it 7.5/10. Beef rib and octopus on potato were my fav dishes! The manager Louie was also very kind, always with smiles when serving us! A minor thing on the service quality - staff could be more attentive. We...raised our hands for quite some time before they noticed us and came over. But overall, it was a decent experience.More

It was good but nothing stood out to the point that I’d want to return. Casual vibe , full even on a Monday night so we had to wait an extra 15 mins for our table to be ready. Pleasant but not WOW.

After the movies, my husband and I popped in for tapas on a Saturday afternoon. We shared a pitcher of sangria and some sparkling water. We tried some familiar dishes, like tomato bread, and we tried some dishes that were new, like Spanish tortilla. The...ambience was really good and the food was fantastic. Service was very attentive and our sangria glasses were regularly refilled from our pitcher. The table was small, but not a problem, because the service was so good. They were constantly taking away plates the moment they were empty. Subi took care of us and we’ll definitely return next time we’re in the city.More

After a few weeks in Hong Kong, we started craving for something that's not Dimsum and egg tarts. Bàrbar immensely hit the spot and exceeded my expectations! We had the following dishes: 1. Rusa Salad - light and refreshing! 2. Seared Mediterranean bluefin tuna, avocado,...pistachio, and rice crackers - My favorite and a MUST TRY. The dish is fresh and had lots of flavor but not overpowering. 3. Croquettes (creamy mushroom all-oli and ibérico ham) - Crispy on the outside and perfectly seasoned and soft inside. This is probably one of the best I've tried so far. My favorite would be the cream mushroom, flavor-wise! 4. Ibérico lamb neck from Aragon "like a kebab" - Truly a chef's kiss! Tender, flavorful, and like the rest of the dishes - perfectly seasoned! 5. Black seafood paella - This was the star of the show and packed with seafood. I would go back for this! 6. Brown anchovies and piquillo pepper "Montadillo" - I get a bit iffy when it comes to anchovies but the dish we ate was so well-balanced, I thoroughly enjoyed it. 7. Tomato bread - such a simple appetizer but so fresh and good! 8. Sangria - need I say more? 9. Cheesecake - Light, soft, perfectly sweet! This restaurant is perfect for any occasion. Our server, Louie, was professional and nice - explaining the dishes as they came along and making sure the dishes were served timely (thank you!). Special shoutout to Chef Austin, the starters were amazing and you are amazing! The interactive set-up where we got to watch how the dishes were cooked made me appreciate the food even more! I hope to come back soon! :)More
