Ate breakfast and supper here every day for 5 days and never got bored or had a bad meal. Incredibly fresh food - and extremely healthy choices!

The food is fresh, well prepared and tasty (fresh fish, grilled vegetables, desserts) But expect slow service and drinks are not fantastic.

Location is beautiful - right on the beach and only a 2 minute walk from our resort, but unfortunately that was the highlight of our visit. There were several tables seated when we arrived, but they weren't completely full. Menus and "specials board" were brought over immediately, but once we ordered, everything took a long time. Our appetizer took more... More

Thanks for your review. we had some staffing problems in the back of the kitchen over the holidays which resulted in slower than usual service and we can only apologise. Issues were resolved, but innthis business, when someone doesn't show up to work on a busy night, unfortunately it is the customer who suffers. Our apologies again. More

We have been trying a few restaurants in Hopkins and this restaurant was recommended by a friend. We arrived around 7.15 pm and after ordering waited about 50 minutes for our starters and then another 45 minutes for our main course. Although the waiter was friendly it seems something was wrong in the kitchen because the food took a very... More

My wife and I ate here on our last night in Hopkins while on our honeymoon. They were have a special barbecue buffet featuring pork. The pork was fantastic and the feel was very laid back, almost like a family cookout except that you did have a server for drinks and you did pay for it, but the food was... More

We did not have a reservation and were told that it would be 30 minutes for a table. An hour later we got a table. Then another 30 minutes we checked they were still serving because it was now 9pm. (We arrived 740 pm). The owner/manager snapped that she TOLD us there would be a wait. So while we waited... More

We are sorry that you had to wait but this review seems a bit skewed as over the holidays we were on a reservation only basis for dinner. We do this for the reason that we can provide good service and not have a long wait for people. When this party arrived, we very politely told them that we didn't... More

The ambiance was fine, it's in a safe neighborhood, and dessert was great. The food was pretty good: my son and I split the 2 person Paella, which was kinda smokey tasting. My daughter's chicken parmesian was ok, but my wife's noodles weren't very warm. Lots of tourists like us filled the restaurant.

Our group commented at dinner that all of our meals this week in Hopkins were great...but that Barracuda was likely the highlight. Great friendly service. Good menu selection and daily specials. My wife and I both had the Shellfish Carbonara and we would both highly recommend it. My daughter had the Lobster and my sister had the Grouper. Each were... More

We went to the Barracuda Bar and Grill expecting a casual place with routine bar food. We were wrong, despite the name, this is an upscale restaurant. We received excellent service and the food was top notch. The flan desert was the best flan I ever had.

Tony's passion is cooking--and it shows! We had different dinners each night we stayed at Beaches and Dreams; each and every one was fantastic--lobster, prawns, fish, pork, chicken--he rocked them all! Check the specials board for the day's fresh catch!
