“Excellent choice for a nice meal in Hamilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I ate there with a group of 8. Our table was in the corner of the bar area and although the bar was very busy on a Friday night, it was not too loud to hold conversations. Everyone was impressed with their meals which ranged form a pan fried red snapper special, through lamb chops, shrimp dishes and gnocchi. It is a bit expensive, but pretty much everything in Hamilton is expensive. The service was good with knowledgeable and professional staff.

“Dinner at Barracuda, Bermuda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We went to this restaurant on a Friday evening, during the final days of this year's Newport-Bermuda yacht race. The island was very busy and so were many of the restaurants near the harbour. We made our reservations by e-mail in advance, to be sure we got in. We have eaten there before and feel it is worth going back to. The Barracuda Restaurant was very busy, very noisy. We had table in the same area as the bar, which made things even noisier. They have an extensive menu with some very adventurous items. I had fried calamari with blue cheese mayo, followed by gnocchi and lobster. It was delicious, the gnocchi in a very mild but tasty tomato sauce. My dinner partner had the beef sampler - filet mignon, ribs, and bone marrow. I drank manhattans, she had gin and tonic.

For dessert we both had sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice cream. Amazing. The two men at the table next to us were working their way through the appetizer menu. While we were there, they had the foie gras, the scallops and then figs wrapped in bacon. It sounded like all were delicious. They then had the beef sampler with lobster and ordered extra marrow. The marrow must have been good but my sister did not eat hers.

Service was a bit slow but, to be fair, they were very busy.

Dinner for two, with a couple of drinks each, was $200.00, including the15% service charge they add to the bill. Just about every restaurant in Bermuda does that nowadays

“nice place great foos cost an arm and a leg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

the Barracuda is a very nice place one which I would consider upper level dining. location is perfect if you go for the street fair wed nights. food is very good fresh and well prepared. service was also very good. some reviews have said the service was a little insincere or cold but hey they are French need I say more lol. out servers were fine. they did a good job took care of us and we had nothing bad to say about them. like most place on Bermuda you either have to go up stairs or down stairs or walk up a hill or go down a hill. this place is the same up the stairs to get in up more stairs to use the bathrooms but you do get your exercise in. over all a good place to have a good dinner

Everything we had there was fresh, unique in flavor and simply delicious! Plenty of options for our teenagers as well.... Our service was excellent too! One of the more memorable meals we have had in quite some time. Would definitely go back again!
