Always enjoy BarZin for dinner or just drinks. There is a great variety of food from good burgers to seafood specialties and salads. There is no continuous food service though, they stop serving around 2pm and start again at 530 even on Saturday. The bar is open continuously for drinks. A nice place on the south end of the island... More

Sx of us had a fine dining experience here. The food was enjoyed by all. It is a little pricey, but if you want an upscale dining experience, this is a good choice!

We just came upon BarZin and thought we would try it. The food was fabulous. We had the fried green tomatoes/portabella dish, and the steak special. It was a 12oz ribeye but it was a little thin for our liking. Would have preferred a thicker steak. Great place!

BarZin is a Bistro with a somewhat an eclectic menu. The food and presentation was outstanding. Their Seafood Lasagna was loaded with scallops, shrimp and other seafood with a vodka sauce. My wife and friends all had a Grouper Special which looked and tasted great. Prices are a little high, but we felt the value was there. They also have... More

We ate at Bar Zin the last night of our vacation on Amelia Island and I wish we had tried it first. I would have gone back every night! Betsy, our server, was WONDERFUL! The food was fresh, flavorful and inventive. We shared the Heirloom Tomato and Mozzarella Salad. DELICIOUS! Not your same old Mozzarella and Tomato Salad. It also... More

2 friends and I stayed at the Omni Plantation Resort and by chance came upon this restaurant, not knowing a thing about it. I live in San Diego, which has a number of wonderful dining establishments but this food was to die for! I had the stuffed salmon with sweet corn puree. It may have been the best dinner I've...

We love this restaurant!!! The wait staff are super attentive. Excellent wines by the glass--nice little bar. The menu has really expanded since the last time we were here. Great appetizers, lots of good seafood choices. Highly recommend

As vegetarians, we face challenges when looking for a good restaurant in a seaside community. We were delighted with BarZin Bistro. Marcus guided us through the menu and I settled on an amazing dish of green fried tomato with portobello mushrooms. My spouse had an award winning pasta dish with artichoke hearts, mushrooms and spinach. This upscale bistro has to... More

Except for the hostess, who just needs more training and maturity, the meal was excellent. The hostess told us she could. seat us when we arrived at 6pm, as long as we would "get up" by 7:20pm! We agreed and she seated us in an empty dinig room. We saw one table inside with guests and 3 outside. On to... More

After eating endless tourist food in Fernandina Beach, it was a pleasure to find the BarZin Bistro & Wine Bar. It was only a few minutes drive from where we were staying outside the Omni Plantation Complex. We didn't discover it until close to the end of our stay. We had lunch there first and then made reservations for dinner... More
