“Thank you meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Some Australian friends had be visiting and wanted to say thank you for our hospitality. I chose the restaurant as I had visited before. The location is excellent over looking the bay plus our table had a nice view of the sea and lights. The menu was a little disappointing with the majority of the starters and mains fish based. I do enjoy fish but expect a variety of other meats. The name is Barracuda but I have never felt it was never a totally fish restaurant.
The service was very good but presentation and quality of the food could have been better for this type of establishment.
Unfortunately the managers behaviour in front of our friends did a great disservice to the restaurant and Malta. We ordered 3 Lime soda and bitters amazingly he did not know what they were so we had to explain. Upon arrival it was obvious they contained no bitter but were assured the contained bitters.So we asked for some more. After waiting quite a while we asked a waitress what was happening to which she replied " They are looking for the bitters " Finally the manager came and apologies telling us they had no bitters !!!!! Why not tell the truth from the start.!!!!! Unfortunately this has not endear my wife and I to this establishment.

“A culinary experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

The Barracuda is a first-class restaurant with a great cuisine, excellent service and, when the weather permits, beautiful seating on the terrace overlooking the sea. It has a long history and admirable tradition. This is no ordinary, run-of-the-mill place to dine; this is where you can spend a memorable evening with special culinary delights!

“Great food and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

My wife and I booked a table here for our first wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. It was on a monday evening in January with the restaurant being pretty empty so we had no problem in getting a window seat with great views over the bay.

The waiter and Maitre d' were very welcoming and attentive and made us feel very much at home. The waiter told us about the area and named a few stars that dined in the restaurant including Sir Alex Ferguson, Madonna and David Beckham. The food was amazing; my wife had the swordfish and I had the seafood selection which were both delicious.

All in all a great evening and we would definitely recommend it for a special occasion.
