Not to be missed!

I spent every night of my stay in Donsol at BARacuda, so whilst I can not compare it to others places in Donsol, I can say those were the best meals I had in the Philippines! The prawns are amazing, the fish is so fresh, and Juliette's pesto is so yummy I had it every night too. Juliette will... read more

Came here after the good comments on tripadvisor and had to leave a reaction here. The food was amazing (know its a cheesy superficial american phrase but had to use this word) Juliette is a person that you should experience. The way she flies from table to table, in her summerdress, like a honeybird seeking for flowers, is something you... More

Upon entering we where greeted by the lovely owner. She showed us our seats and chit chatted a little before showing us the menu. She gave us recommendations. Food was awesome we had a nice barracuda partnered with her Famous pesto. What made this place amazing is the way she treats her costumers. More like old friends visiting than just... More

My wife and I ate here five nights in a row during our recent trip to donsol. The decor is rustic, the ambience relaxed and intimate, the sunsets spectacular, cocktails excellent, the food simple but very fresh and cooked to perfection and the wonderful owner Juliette is a lesson in hospitality. She really cares about her customers and is a... More

BARacuda is the kind of place you don't wanna leave. The excellent service, the fresh food, the beautifull view, the lovely Juliette and the rhum makes you want to stop the time from ticking.

First of all: the staff is amazing. Juliette's "crew" is so sweet and professional. Juliette is full of energy and has such a kind heart. We came here both nights we stayed in Donsol. Her food is simple, and tasty. Do try her pesto, the prawns and the calamari salad! She has a nice cocktail list, of which I created... More

You have to visit BARacuda when you are in Donsol! Simple seafood cooked to perfection by the most lovely lady Juliet. You have to try the tuna sashimi as appetiser, but I think me and my girlfriend tried every dish on the menu during or stay in Donsol and I can recommend every single one of them. And the cocktails... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a local dive company, and we were not disappointed, after some distinctly average food this was a welcome change. The fish is glistening with freshness ,locally caught that morning, the love and effort into each dish combined with the owner (Julieta's) love for cooking makes the restaurant top in donsol! The squid salad starter... More
