“Never disappointed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

We went to the Barracuda restaurant several time during our stay and we had pasta, pizza, meatballs, salads and bruschetta and none of them disappointed us. I am italian and very picky about food, italian food specially! I found the pasta very well done and the ragu sauce perfect!!The meatballs remembered me those ones of my grandma!So, I was happy..and the prices didn't seem high considering the quality of the food and the ingredients.

“A restaurant with a bipolar personality.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2012

When it first openened I had the best Tuna I have ever eaten in my life, the owner was friendly and the food absolutely perfect, we ate lunch there three days in a row. A few months later we went back to Bocas and the owner had flocked to Italy the food was below average, awfully seasoned, and the service incredibly slow. This summer I went back and saw the owner outside sipping wine, we went in and got a lovely meal and nice service. The next day we got nice and ready for dinner went and were completely dissapointed she didn't cook, and being there she didn't care that her restaurant is serving horrible food. She didn't even aknowledge us, it is a shame as she can really serve awesome food when she wants.

“Average Italian food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2012

Average food, average service, average prices. Though with a name like "Barracuda" I'd hoped for some fish on the menu, but it was standard Italian fare. When we were ready to leave we went to the bar to get our tab since service was a little slow.

Italian pasta, no more than average. Two customers, and the time between serving each was more than ten minutes...
