Didn't know what to expect - great surprise always the best. 4 for dinner on Saturday 8.00, great choice and all cooked beautifully. Had a bottle of sauvignon blanc and a merlot. Sauvignon was not quite as cold as it could have been, but ok, we suggested this (to we think the owner) and before we could blink it had... More

Dined here with a friend, and really enjoyed the experience. Excellent food, and very friendly staff. We'd intended to dine in another Italian Restaurant a few yards away, but decided to call in, as it appeared attractive, and the menu suited. Not disappointed at all - and, based on our experience, can fully recommend. It's not the cheapest of the... More

£6.50 for a full English breakfast of this quality is certainly good value. Not only that the service was prompt and friendly and the ingredients of good quality ( I especially liked the sausages) and cooked perfectly. Nice to have an option of this type in this area

Tried this as been working through the top restaurants on trip advisor in watford. Have been back twice since and the service and food has been impeccable. Friendly, food is amazing and i think it's reasonably priced. Menu is small and simple but something for everyone. One thing I would say is all 3 times they didn't have at least... More

Visited tonight with 3 other guests. The service was absolutely perfect, we could not have asked for more. The food was AMAZING. I had tuna glazed in sesame seeds and honey which was a perfect portion size. My friends had pasta and prawns which also were great! Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back!! Great work Barracuda staff!!

Whilst the food is reasonably priced, there was no vegan option and my daughter was given a bowl of spaghetti with chopped tomatoes. Needless to say it was bland and stodgy. We commented to the waiters and owners on the lack of options and was told vegans don't come here with a shrug. They also missed my fathers meal arriving... More

Time after time this place never disappoints. Delicious home made food with friendly and efficient service. I had the fillet steak with wild mushroom and Madeira sauce tonight with tiramisu for dessert - would definitely recommend both of these dishes. The king prawns are also fantastic here.

We're were looking for a restaurant and saw Barracuda from the high street. We had a great warm and friendly welcome, the food was amazing, full of flavor, great portion size and very very reasonable. Overall we can't wait to go back. Thanks for all the team for making us very welcome.
