About Claypots Barbarossa

Anchored in Hardware Lane with a shipload of fresh seafood to add to its already trendy cafe and restaurants scene, Claypots Barbarossa is now among the most reliable CBD spots to pick up local sustainable seafood and an array of healthy salads and vegetables, either if you’re on the go or sitting down. Inspired by the daily catch, specialties include a bountiful spaghettini marinara bianco, a peppery okra and seafood gumbo, seared Hervey Bay scallops, whole grilled calamari and Snapper alla Puttanesca. Salads and Vegetables are in high rotation; look out for quinoa with grilled vegetables and feta, Greek salad with horseradish dressing and olive jam, and couscous with chickpeas and kale. A small yet impressive list of European half bottles and Australian and New Zealand wines by the glass make this a popular spot in Melbourne’s CBD – obviously, especially for the lunch rush, it’s wise to book a table well ahead of time.

The food was fresh and delicious and the staff provide service with a smile. It's already a great hang out for after work drink - live listening music, friendly staff and yummy foods. Thank you Barbarossa Claypots for a great lunchtime and Friday night experience.

For a Saturday night, it was surprising that for a party of 6 (and there was only another dozen odd people) we had limited selection on some items. Despite this, we did get excellent service and the food was fantastic. It was reasonably priced for seafood, with the meals averaging around $40 a head. Only other downside was sitting outside and in the opposite alley was rubbish bins which were being used regularly, disturbing what was an otherwise pleasant enough outdoor experience.

Overall, the food and service was good. We started with the Galician octopus sandwich which was tasty & spicy. Beetroot and vodka cured ocean trout with Russian salad was then followed by a whole grilled calamari and spaghetti marinara bianca. All were good although I would say I have had better at the other Claypots. Service was good and attentive.

Waitress charming and food delicious including the smashed potatoes we hadn't ordered which apparently replaced the green vegetables which we had. We were going to the theatre and had limited time so appreciated the staff meeting the deadline. Would like to return for a longer evening.
