Excellent Night menu

Regularly visit in daytime and lunchtimes and food is what you would expect from a cafe. Service is always friendly and efficient. Night time menu is excellent and prices are reasonable. Good venue for a party or couple night out.

We were welcomed really friendly. Some of my party come there regularly and they were recognized. The layout of the menu is not friendly to read. But the majority tried the day special of slices sirloin marinated. We should have known better. It tasted like they had too many steaks leeft over from the last days and to sell them... More

Used to be a regular for dinner with friends and it was always enjoyable but maybe popularity has been it's downfall. The place is not big and it's very noisy if there's a party and you are sitting in the sound trap by the window. The menu is tired and predictable, it needs changing and the food quality is highly...

Was out shopping with my boyfriend and stopped to read the menu after always walking past it. Really surprised by how much Mediterranean food they do. Lovely, stylish looking restuarant inside, but we chose to sit outside which for us is always a plus. They had a '3 courses for 15' on. The food was nice. I've never had so... More

Just popped into this restaurant for brunch. Wanted Eggs Benedict but didn't want the full portion and as I hate waste, I asked if I could have a half portion ie just one egg instead of two. My waitress asked the owner who categorically said no! Great start to my brunch. So instead I ordered mushrooms on toast and a... More

We visited in Feb, but have only just got round to saying nice things! Nice romantic atmosphere, the staff are super friendly and give it a nice family feel. The food is great too - really large portions though, bring your appetite!

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 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
