We also has... More

A beautiful location right on the beach. Offering a good range of drinks. Unfortunately on both occasions I visited the service was very slow.

I usually don't care that much about the service - the quality of the food is much more important to me. But when it takes the waitress over 20 minutes just to get us the menu it's enough to make me grumpy. Finally the couple by the table next to us had to call for the waitress attention for us,...

Very good restaurant at the beach with tables inside and outside. We have eaten very good lobster here. The wine choice is international and of good quality. The staff is well trained, friendly and effcient. This is surely worth it. one of the places to out for dinner.

Each time we've visited the island we have managed to fit in a meal hear. The staff are excellent and have pictures of the more unusual seafood on offer. If your brave try the kraken, if your hungry try the mixed seafood. The suckling pig is also very tasty and everything is good value for money

Always good food and good service at the Barracuda. Fresh local fish is to be recommended, and also their special rice dish Jambalaya. May need to book a table especially if you want to sit outside with your feet in the sand.

We ate at the Barracuda twice during our stay and it would have been three times had the service not been poor on our second visit. It is a great location and really nicely done out. The menu is very varied and prices are reasonable. We could not believe how cheap the bill was the first time we ate there.... More

What a great little bar to sit and watch the world go by. They have lots of branded and non-branded drinks to avail yourself with whilst watching the goings on that take place in the pier and beach. However what is the best thing is the food. Fish to die for and the lobster - yummy. Make sure you take... More
