This place serves fresh seafood indeed. Not cheap, but the fish was so fresh you can taste the sea! It is the best place to be in Donsol for dinner. Drop by and have a chat with Juliet or her son, they will both keep you entertained! I liked eating here because you can trust that their seafood, pesto pasta... More

So glad to find this place that made our trip a perfect one. We stayed in a resort nearby and sadly to find the food served in the resort is just average so we decided to eat somewhere else. Thank god we found Barracuda and we end up having dinner every nights during our entire trip. Juliette is a brilliant... More

Don't miss this place if you are in Donsol. It was recommended to me because Juliette the owner was supposedly very entertaining. Stopped in for a drink one night and got to talking with her. Her character, personality and service definitely make this place! The margarita was one of the best I've had. I returned for dinner the next night.... More

I'm glad we listened to all of the excellent reviews...our experience here was amazing. Fish was fresh and excellently prepared. Squid salad was to die for. And the calamansi margaritas were a perfect compliment to the meal. Juliet was a joy to meet and a pleasure to get to know. We will be back again for sure!! p.s. Thanks for... More

Juliette is definitely all a character and the service quality varies depending on how many mango daiquiris she has drunk already ;) Having said that, the jackfish and prawns we ate two nights in a row were fresh (she shows you the fish before cooking it) and very well cooked (not carbonised, but moist and juicy). The tuna sashimi was... More

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
