We have been visiting The Barracuda restaurant every year we have had our timeshare and really love the good, honest and very reasonably priced food that Dino and his family produce. The family can't do enough to please it's customers and we particularly like the "Fish and Chip" nights every Friday, where there is a really good atmosphere. Sadly, our... More

Very small but more tables outside. Food excellent and extremely cheap. If I have to be critical, it maybe lacks character. We went as it was just across the road on a wet night, so suited us. However, the meal cannot be faulted.

We went with friends as the fish and chips are recommended. They were ok but nothing to right home about and the tables are too small for 4 - we were bumping elbows. Underground in a shopping mall it lacks any resemblance to character and really is not the place to enjoy a meal out.

In previous years we have only had snacks and drinks here. This year we ate twice in the evening, and were very glad we did. The first time was very busy at about 8pm, and we were told immediately that there would be quite a wait. We don't mind this as long as we are told. I ordered lamb chop... More

We found this restaurant after booking a table at a close by restaurant. It was a Friday at lunch time and the place was totally packed. Everyone was eating the Friday special of fish, chips, peas and tartare sauce. It looked and smelt fabulous and every eating were really enjoying the food. We decided to give it a try on... More

We've been coming to Madeira for several years and have always been welcomed back by Dino and his family as friends. Good value food, together with a great atmosphere. Friday night has the best fish and chips, which are as good as I've had anywhere!

We’ve passed this restaurant a number of times over the years and never thought about having a meal, until this year’s holiday, and what a super surprise we had. At first glance it’s possibly not the best looking restaurant around, being set in a mini shopping mall, under cover. However it was full both times we went and there was... More
