El Barracuda has a big seafood selection and it is a busy, bustling place.
The decor is interesting and kind of fun. It is bigger than it looks but the service was pretty good. The fish baked in foil with vegetables was very moist and delicious.

Can't find better food and drinks (try the mezcalitas) anywhere. Also a super fun atmosphere. Great service and a friendly neighborhood cat!

What a GREAT little place, just steps away from the Vidanta Sea Garden Resort. We had a short wait to get seated but the host was talking with people in line and making sure they were informed on how seating was moving along and getting drinks for any who wanted one. Our Tuna Poke app. was the best we have ever had, loved the spice/heat of it and it alone will bring us back! My wife had catch of the day, with a cilantro sauce that was amazing and my dynamite seafood was superb!! Rudolpho our waiter was very helpful and cheerful. We talked with a number of people around us and everyone seemed thrilled with their choices. Oh and a very filling size portions appeared on every plate that we saw, The best part was our final bill, with a bottle of Malbec, our cost was just around $57US...

One of my favourite places in Nuevo Vallarta. The food is consistently great no matter what you order, staff awesome and always get great entertainers. I'm a weekly regular now.

This year, the food and service seemed to be better than the past years. We had 9 people the first week, and we were all served at the same time, with everything as ordered and hot. The added treat of the table magician was fun for the two grandsons, and the adults. The second week, they were extra busy, being January 2, but the service and food quality was excellent. Good prices too.
