El Barracuda was introduced to me by a friend after I mentioned my longing for a torta ahogada, a savory, sauce-covered sandwich original to Guadalajara. A short walk towards 5 de diciembre (away from the Malécon), El Barracuda is in a great location, with dining in the covered, open-air restaurant or large picnic tables directly on the beach. The menu is shown on a large board and the servers are attentive and fast. Cervezas are chilled, topotes are fresh in large cubetas and tortas are delicious! Note: after 6 the menu changes to dinner (no tortas): a bit more expensive than lunch but still muy rico - try the ceviche or Octopus San Lucia. A great place for friends or a casual date. Cash only and closed on Mondays! http://www.elbarracuda.com/

Stayed a week in PV and this was the only restaurant my wife and I ate at twice!! The coconut shrimp is unbeatable. Had the seafood combo the second night and that was equally tasty. Perfect view of ocean right from your table. Waiters were timely and very polite. Easy walk to the Malecon or hotel zone. Chips and salsa were abundant and the spiciness was perfect. Great Find!!!

We ate here 3 nights. A perfect place to watch the sunset while your having supper. You can eat in or they have picnic tables on the beach. The beer battered shrimp and coconut shrimp were the best. The mushroom soup was all mushrooms. My husband loved it. Its a quick walk to here from the Sheraton.

I have been here may 3 times over 2 years. Great view - right on the beach. Good prices. and the service is OK. It is small but the worst thing is that the food quality is very disappointing. Our party of 6 had several different items off the menu and nothing was very good. Sorry! Please work on the food production.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in PV. It is not fancy or pretentious. Who cares? The setting is beautiful- right on the sand. The food is excellent; we particularly loved the mahi mahi ceviche and the tomatlan salad (with watermelon, tomato, and goat cheese). And the amazing fried ice cream dessert. And the Kahlua and cream they gave us at the end of the meal. The menu is diverse (check it out online). The prices are remarkably reasonable, and the service was excellent- friendly, helpful, and inviting. I look forward to going back again soon.
