"This was our second time to do a brunch while they offered the deal with a gift certificate. Cafe Babareeba is our favorite restaurant and would visit regardless of the deal but certainly the deal makes it much sweeter. It's always good to dine at this place and we'll certainly keep coming back."

"Café Ba-Ba-Reeba is a great place to take friends. Sharing a number of plates and you can try the whole menu by sharing different items.
Ordered a pitcher of Sangria- Passion Fruit
Great drinks and a great place to go with groups. Prices are decent!

"It was very good. My only complaint is that it was January and we sat by the windows.
It was freezing, they had some air blowing on us and we all had to eat with our winter coats on.

"The food is delicious here, especially the paella. I'd eat here again, but probably wouldn't buy the sangria again, because it tasted as though it hadn't a drop of alcohol in it. Also, service was perky and relatively attentive, but our server did forget to put in one of our dishes that we ordered. It still arrived, albeit very late, even after we told our server that we no longer wanted it."

"I heard raving reviews of the Sangria, but our pitcher was watered down, and had very little alcohol. The food was fantastic though- the octopus plate was by far my favorite."

"We had a wonderful experience here. A dinner with family from out of town and the location was the perfect choice. Our waiter did an excellent job of spacing the tapas so that we did not have an overloaded table. He also brought them in a wonderful order for the flavor variety that we had ordered. We are looking forward to returning here in the future!"
