Consistently delicious food with a smile

I have always enjoyed eating at Barracuda, whether for lunch or dinner. I would highly recommend any of the meat or pasta dishes (including spaghetti bolognese, steak, veal milanese or any of the veal dishes). In addition, the staff are always very friendly and welcoming, as well as being full of... read more

In addition, the staff are always very friendly and welcoming, as well as being full of humour. A real gem on Watford's high street.

Ate here one evening as it was the first place I found on leaving the hotel where I was staying. The staff seemed genuinely interested in producing a meal that I really wanted, offering me some options against the menu. I had a great meal there and if I was in Watford again then I would definitely go back.

It is not the same place it used to be when they started out. When they were a cafe offering decent brunch options at an unbeatable price. The service was great and the owners (or the pair of gentlemen who seemed to be owners) would always greet you when you finished your meal and were about to head out. By... More

A group of friends and I went to this restaurant one evening on a Saturday night and I really fancied a steak and my friend said the steaks were very nice here so decided to try one. I was a bit taken at the price of £23 for steak with Stilton as there was no vegetables to talk of, but... More

We hadn't planned to pop into this cafe/restaurant as we were looking for somewhere to have a quick breakfast. We were staying in Watford (for the first time) as we were visiting the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio Tour (I have reviewed this too). The food was good (we only had scrambled egg on toast, a bacon sandwich and coffees)... More

Visited Barracuda on a few occasions and have never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is bubbly without being loud. The staff are attentive and pleasant. There is a wide choice on the menu and the food was lovely. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Stumbled across this place just by the flyover summer last year with my girlfriend and its now a firm favourite with all my friends and us. Its the only place in Watford to get a decent Steak cooked properly .It feels like being on holiday somewhere in the Med inside with regular specials and amazing service with a warm welcome... More

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
