Nice

This is worth a visit if you can get a table over looking the water (or out on the balcony in summer). The focus is on fish but they have a good selection of other dishes. They provided an amouse bouche of smoked salmon roulade on crostini which was very tasty. The fresh bread provided... read more

My friends and I had dinner here, and it was fantastic! Service was excellent, food was brilliant and couldn't be faulted. It is a must do in Malta.

While the location and decor of Barracudas is excellent, sadly the service lacks any charm and can be at times almost comically disorganised. Likewise the food, while certainly passable, is not anywhere near as good as the look and feel (and price) of the restaurant would suggest. On the plus side, a window seat here is a great spot, with... More

Loved the food, the decor, the grandness of the building. I had the lobster linguini for main which had quite a few pieces of lobster and the sauce was delicious! Hubby had a steak that he really enjoyed. Service was not too bad considering the size of the restaurant and how busy it was! Very classy place with excellent interior... More

They cater well for large parties, the setting is beautiful, we were seated on the part that overlooks the sea. the food was the best we had in Malta, generous portions, and tasty fish as well as the meat dishes. They were so helpful when I... More

We visited the Barracuda last night, brimming with the hopes of another fantastic meal, having visited the restaurant three years ago on two occasions and having loved it. In Summary, i would say our previous experience was not lived up to through constant mistakes. This is why: When we arrived the host or manager was barking orders at his staff... More

We ate at the Barracuda twice in a week and it was amazing. There is a large range of antipasti and first courses and a good selection of wines by the glass. I especially recomend the pasta dishes which are very al dente (and that's a must for me as an italian). The service is very good! It is certainly... More

Hmmmm. A dreamy location in an old house on the water. Seafood was very good, but service is a bit anonymous and uninspired. It's quite expensive, but then good seafood is quite expensive.
