One of the best restaurants that i have ever seen, Juliet is a great owner, it's a pleasure to talk with her. I think i ate there all my dinners while i was in Donsol. I got addicted. You don't expect it. ÑamÑam. Real Talk.

There are not many good places in Donsol. Juliet, the owner of BARacuda stands head and shoulders above everybody else. She is a very talented lady and a great saleswoman. Her restaurant is ideally located right on the beach, the menu is limited, but the seafood is very fresh and tasty. If the catch of the day is generous, you... More

How do start? After a whole afternoon of trying to search for whale sharks which was a total failure we were dissapointed and decided to stroll around the place and look for a seafood resto before we head back to our hotel in Legazpi we chance upon a signage along the street. We were first hesitant to enter, the place... More

This is one of the "do not miss" in Donsol. It is a small restaurant with a bar and accommodation on the beach. The place is run by a really friendly Philippine lady and the food is mainly seafood but there is also vegetarian alternatives. The food is a combination between western and Philippine cousin and is made with only... More

Not too many dining options in Donsol but this one is not to be missed. The sea food is brought in everyday fresh. Cooked to perfection by the extremely friendly staff. Definitely try the prawns and the fresh pesto pasta. The drinks are pretty good too! Say hello to Max the German Shepherd too!

This is one of the expensive restaurants in the Philippines that is located on the beach. An ideal place to taste exotic seafood. The place is run by a cheerful and friendly Filipino woman who provides excellent recommendations of the food and the cocktails. I ordered the squid salad with a tasty dressing that simply melted in my mouth along... More

The options for eating out in Donsol are limited. One goes to Barracuda with high expectations due to the excellent reviews, yet leaves questioning whether it was all worth it. Yes, the food and drinks are generally good. We ate the most giant prawns, which were tasty, yet the fish was undercooked and rather forgettable. The biggest challenge was dealing... More

We came because of local references. Place is poorly decorated, but it not a main goal of any resto. We with my boyfriend ordered squid salad and tuna salad, both were perfect, I liked a lot. Then one fish and prawns, fish was perfect, prawns overcooked. Cocktails are strong. So food is really good, but price for that was EXTREMELY... More

Very friendly owner/manager! Try the catch of the day and trust their recommendations. Good drinks. Definitely more pricey than other restaurants around, but quality and service match.
