Delicious food and great host

We have had delicious seafood at Baracuda. The fish is fresh and you can pick your own fish. The location is really nice, right on the beach. Furthermore, the owner lady is great fun and really welcoming. Definately go here if you're in donsol

My partner and I were recommended this restaurant from a friend who traveled to Donsol 3 years ago. It did not disappoint even after so many years! Juliette is as bubbly and passionate as we was advised and the food was best we have tried in the Philippines after traveling for three weeks! The prawns were enormous and cooked perfectly!... More

My wife and I had a lovely dinner at Juliette's intimate, beachfront restaurant in Donsol. She custom made a pesto for my wife who is vegetarian, and perfectly grilled fish and a prawn for me. We also had tomatoes with basil in a vinagrette.

Definitely the best place to have a decent cocktail in Donsol and I dare to say probably the best on the island if not in the Philippines. The mango daiquiri was unbelievable!

This is hands-down the best restaurant I've been to in the Philippines. The food is excellent, the beer is cheap, cocktails are great and the host is definitely one of a kind. If you're in Donsol, then don't miss BARacuda!! The bar next door also serves excellent cocktails but I can't find him on tripadvisor.

Lovely setting and amazing food. They cater to mostly seafood lovers but have some vegetarian options as well. Everything was super fresh and totally delicious. The beer was cheep and cold... fantastic!! Stop next door for a sundowner bicol special drink-rum, coconut, spices, brown sugar... unreal.

We were introduced by our beach hotel's owner, the wonderful Mai and the authenticity of this beach restaurant with simple but elegant, deliciously fresh-from-the sea specials each evening prepared with zest by the remarkable chef/owner had us going back for 3 of the 3 remaining nights of our visit!

Imagine low season, everything is closed and Donsol has a sad and lost atmosphere. But when Julietta saw us walking on the beach she immediately invited us in for a couple of famous Baracuda Julietta's and changed our entire holiday. She managed to arrange a firefly boat ride the same evening and underground river visit the next day. Finally she... More

Seafood was AMAZING and the hostess cute as can be. Price was somewhat in the high end but well worth it and the free shots (which according to the hostess was the only way to cure my classic asia-stomach issues!) were a fun a welcoming twist.
