We were visiting the area and chose Barenz after seeing some good reviews. We enjoyed some of the Hope Pale Ale and had a great meal of prawn & chorizo linguine which was smoky in flavour with well cooked and tasty prawns. We also had 2 pizzas, a supreme & half peri peri chicken/prawn which were both fresh & delicious. We also had a pear salad & Caesar salad which were very nice. The service from our waiter was a little clumsy but otherwise our food & drinks were delicious & we would definitely go back.
Service is so good, couldn’t be better. Nothing is too much trouble. Everyone is so friendly, helpful and welcoming. Food is really good too. Happy hour cocktails are the best!
Good atmosphere but the food wasn’t great. for that price I was expecting good quality.
While the food was good unfortunately it was let down by the service. We were halfway through our entree when our mains suddenly appeared. Also, if you offer cocktails please learn how to make them properly. The martini we ordered was not well made.
This restaurant turns into a nightclub on Saturday so we basically had to scream at each other to have a conversation. Unfortunately this ruined the place for me. They should call it a nightclub, at least for certain nights of the week and then people would know what to except. Food was yum though and the service was pretty good.
Made a booking for breakfast - got to the restaurant and we were just told to sit wherever we wanted - we still had to move tables together as we had booked for 6 people and there were no 6 seater tables set up. We waited for an hour for our breakfast and the restaurant was not busy at all.
Far too noisy !!! Function area cordoned off right beside our table for 4 and we could not hear ourselves speak. They have seperate function areas out the back and I think they should keep functions to those areas and not beside the inside diners! Also lighting is very dark and bleak wouldn’t call it mood or romantic!
Thank you for your feedback. Yes Saturday evenings are quite noisy regardless if they are functions or tables especially this time of year with plenty of Christmas parties booked in. If you would like a more intimate atmosphere we would love you to try an evening during the week!
Need to change up the Menu.... it's been the same for a long time.
Great service and atmosphere
Great atmosphere & bar staff
The lighting was not great. We could barely see our breakfast
We love Barenz
Nice place, good atmosphere, food is good.
This was our first time at Barenz and we were both delighted by the prompt service and delicious food. We will definitely be back!
Just felt squashed in and than food was nice but was like eat and run
Great food and wine but was VERRY noisy
Food was okay, pasta tasted good. We got the garlic prawn pizza the base was good. But it said it had chilli in it, wasn’t expecting sweet chilli sauce squeezed over the top. Then some tiny prawns. Not worth the $26. Salt and pepper squid was really nice but still $20 for an entree. Little far fetched. Wouldn’t come back for food anytime soon,
Great casual & relaxed atmosphere. Staff were attentive, food was good value for money. Being able to take home unfinshed food was a bonus. Would definitely dine at Barenz again.

Who needs Barcelona when you’ve got Barenz? This Camden eatery is the perfect cure for your Spanish addiction. The impressive tapas bar is spread across two levels, with an additional alfresco dining space at the rear, perfect for long summer evenings or a private functioin. Inside, the restaurant is an amber coloured glow and the large bar takes centre stage. Sink down into one of the comfy couches lining the walls and prepare for a taste-full journey. If you’re in the mood for tapas try the seared scallops and chorizo or the lemon infused salt and pepper calamari. Don’t worry if you need something more substantial, there are also pizza and pasta dishes on offer. This place can get pretty busy in the evenings so make sure you book ahead. Best dish: 16 hour slow cooked lamb shoulder
