The food was great! Lobster amazing but what killed it was the live music. The space is tight and not really a great place for a jamming violin and a loud muffler horn. It was too much. All that aside, I would return for the food but run if I saw the music duo.

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 lasagna was average and the fish of the day was fine. Even though we speak Spanish, they got our drink orders wrong and seemed to not hear us... More

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!

Great pizza with tons of toppings. Nice view. ~$16 for a large, filling pie. Our server spoke english and spanish and was attentive. Cold beers. Caribbean breeze. One of the nicer restaurants without the tourist trap feel.

Coming from Canada, it's near impossible to find a good Italian restaurant. Everything has been 'Americanized' and is nothing is like what you'd find at the restaurants in Italy. On a trip to Panama, out on a small island, I never expected to encounter good, authentic Italian food. A very welcome surprise eating at Barracuda! We had the tuna carpaccio,... More
