“I'll be dreaming about this food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Tony and Angela not only run the fantastic Beaches and Dreams (see hotel review), they also prepare dream worthy cuisine at the attached Barracuda Bar and Grill. The service is personal and fantastic. Our waiter, Raymond, was attentive and saw to our every need. At the Barracuda, the seafood is fresh caught daily and expertly prepared. Try the exquisite specials that change daily. I thought I couldn't possibly have a better meal than the aromatic Morroccan Grouper the first night we dined there, but then I had the succulent Wild Boar Osso Bucco during our second dinner there and found myself savoring many bites with my eyes closed relishing the melt-in-your-mouth texture and the layers of flavor. Angela's desserts are incredible as well. As a group, we found ourselves ordering different desserts so that we could enjoy them all. The fresh bananas wrapped in phyllo dough drizzled in homemade caramel sauce was a decadent dream in every spoonful. We loved the Barracuda so much, after our group moved onto the second half of our trip we drove over 30 minutes to eat there again!

“Great food on the beach in Belize”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Anthony is a fantastic chef as well as his wife Angela who can bake like no tomorrow. Together with the Alaskan roots, they cook up and serve a lovely meal on the beach. Douglas serves and does a great job. I had steak one night, seafood pasta dish another. It was wonderful and breakfast is lovely as well with fresh fruit, coffee, eggs and more.

“Another WIN for Beaches and Dreams!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We were staying at Beaches and Dreams (see hotel review) while visiting Hopkins and had tried a couple other places just to "branch out" away from the hotel, but Tony & Angela's kitchen kept calling us back...amazing homemade breads, succulent lamb, delectable wahoo, & the coconut flan?! INCREDIBLE! Some of the best food in Stann Creek! A definite delight!

“A little pricey for what you get”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at Almond Beach resort recently and made a point to try all of the restaurants along the beach. The food at Barracudas was really good. We got the blackened barracuda bites for an appetizer and wild boar for our entree. The wild boar was very tender and the sauce was delicious. And who knew that barracuda could taste so good?!?! However this restaurant was the most expensive we ate at in Hopkins and portion sizes aren't as large. We definately preferred Chef Robs restaurant.

“Amazing Food.....best vacation food ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Tony is an outstanding chef who will cater to your needs. We ordered his specials every night and each night he outdid himself. We ate at the restaurant every night except the night they take a break, (Wed.) and we were forced to eat elsewhere!! There is no reason to eat anywhere else when you have such amazing food and choices. And let's not forget about Angela the pastry chef!! Her desserts are to die for. OMG...coconut flan, a double chocolate diablo dessert, cheesecake and fresh bananas in phyllo topped with fresh whipped cream. She is amazing. And each morning she made us breakfast....the fresh fruits and yogurt along with whatever you want. We'd walk over to the open breeze restaurant to find a pot of coffee on our table. I love Beaches and Dreams and the Barracuda Bar and Grill!! We don't know if we can wait a year to go back!! Another 10 stars!!
