Barracuda is amazing! I ate there a year or so ago and was so happy on my return to Watford to find it still there. The seaford dishes are delicious- cooked perfectly with sauces to compliment not overwhelm. The presentation is also top-notch. Tonight, I went with a group of six for business. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the service... More

I really like this place in the day time... Menu has great choice and the food is always so lovely and fresh. Each of my friends and family have now also become regulars after visiting here. I'm not too keen myself on the evening menu, but probably cuse I'm so satisfied with the day time menu! Deffo worth a visit

Staff are friendly and attentive and the menu has a Mediterranean feel, with a number of specials each day, as... More

I have been going to Barracuda for several years and through a few refurbs! It's consistent and doesn't disappoint - either during the day when it's a good solid cafe with excellent coffee and fresh food, or the refined bistro it becomes by evening. The staff are welcoming and attentive.

Went on spec while walking through town - lovely food and a nice ambience especially for 6pm - attentive and timely service and a sensible bill. Excellent choices available on an extensive menu. I hope they succeed - we'll be back with friends!

Nothing s[ecial in terms of location or decor but good, solid decent food. I had an omlette while my partner had a panini. The omlette might have been warmer but they did after all, accede to my request for more salad and fewer chips. Lovely, alert pleasant service at a very busy time of day. For a good basic solid...

Lovely food and brilliant service. Very reasonably priced and the food is fresh and tasty. There were 6 of us and we all ordered different dishes. Nobody was disappointed. Will definitely go back again.
