its a great location but the food is nothing special Ive eaten here maybe 3 or 4 times , the lasagna was good but very oily as is the carpaccio, the service was ok although the guy i was with complained about his beer tasting unusual and rather than change it it turned very quickly into a battle of wills...

This restaurant was lovely we ate there twice and our meals were good on both occasions and the staff were very helpful. We ate some really lovely fish at this restaurant from fresh tuna to lobster, I would recommend this restaurant.

I have to say that the restaurant is always a guarantee: good service, great location, fresh food. The Octopus (made in any way available) is amazing. Carpaccio too. The fried goat cheese is special....BUT THE TUNA TARTAR?!?!?!? Just the most beautiful (yes, that is important too), complete and special dish ever had in Santa Maria! I live here since 8... More

Nicely situated on the beach with nice tablecloths and beach for the floor unless you go into the raised covered area to the rear.Usual local menu of locally caught fish,meat dishes and a pasta section. On the whole I would say good food with good service and good ambiance. All the best in your travels. Peter and Rosalind

We ate at this restaurant based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we weren't disappointed. Staff are friendly and attentive without being overbearing, the views are stunning and the food is very good. Highlight was the chocolate mousse which was delicious. If you go to Santa Maria, you must try this place.

A really nice beach front bar with a great sea view, if visiting Santa Maria it is well worth stopping for a drink or two. We never actually ate there so I can't comment on the food but it looked good. 2.5 Euro for a pint of the local beer, which is very nice and quite strong :o)

We had lunch there in hot september. Fresh fish, nice french fries and beveries... Just in front of the marina and the fishermen, when they come back after their fishing day... A special place, quiet, shady, in the center of Santa Maria... We loved it.

A good restaurant by the beach with a good menu and friendly efficient service. The food is not expensive and is very good. Fish and seafood are a recommendation. Big enough not to require a booking, so you can just wander in. Dining inside and outside too. Nice relaxing atmosphere. My only quibble is that their cocktail menu could be... More

During my week long vacation in Sal I went to Barracuda twice. The food is delicious - I highly recomend the lobster sauda (the capo verdian style) and the tuna tartare. We ordered also the deep fried prawns, the octopus, the tuna carpaccio and the goat cheese from the starter menu. All definitely worth the calories!! On our first visit,... More
