We went to Barracuda when in Bocas Town looking for something for lunch. We were both in the mood for pizza, and this place really hit the spot. The outdoor dining was nice in the afternoon but a little hot. If I could have, I would have wanted to go back for dinner since the spot was really lovely at... More

Really liked the drinks, not so great view of the dirty water next to our table and where the water taxis dock-trash of every variety. Made us nervous about the water that was used in the drinks.

We had lunch here and ended up spending more than $50 for 3 people with no alcohol. My pizza was very greasy. I didn't finish it and didn't want the leftovers.

The crab salad, tuna carrpachio and homemade pasta are wonderful! The owner was friendly and inviting. We ate here on our last night and enjoyed it so much that we made it a point to enjoy our lunch here before leaving.

Restaurant run by an italian family. The food has an italian taste and the service is normal. Only thing to watch is the check, the place is a little pricey.

It was a very nice dinner. They had nice live music and the food was very good. Me and my boyfriend had pasta with seafood and my mum had a yummy salad. Everything was great!

The atmosphere was very cozy and friendly and the food was amazing. We had Greek salad and bruschetta as appetizer, and ravioli as main course. The food was authentically italian, one of the best in a very long time!
