For a tasty and nutritious breakfast to start the day, patrons can choose from classic breakfast dishes such as eggs benedict, a smoked salmon bagel, or avocado toast, to name a few options.
For dinner, although the restaurant’s signature paella is perhaps what Barbetta is best known for, their menu options certainly don’t stop there. You’ll also find dishes such as tuna tartare, grilled octopus, herb-crusted snapper, beef carpaccio, curry tofu, mahi mahi, and much more. Barbetta also offers a dedicated children’s menu, making it a great option for those traveling with young children.
For a quick lunch or a small snack, Barbetta also has a poolside bar offering a wide selection of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and cocktails. The lunch menu includes local conch fritters, cracked conch, quesadillas, nachos, pizzas, sandwiches, and more.
Fancy some tapas? Sample Barbetta’s conch or tomato bruschetta, coconut shrimp, or jerk chicken roulade.
