A place where we sometimes stop for coffee. On a Friday Dino, the very friendly owner, serves deliciously, crispy fish (and chips), which we enjoy, usually as an evening meal.This year we discovered that they are also served throughout the day, so we enjoyed them as a late lunch. It is a very well priced meal.

A good meal served in pleasant surroundings by very friendly people. We will return next Friday to repeat the fish and chip night experience. Better than a lot in the UK. Inexpensive and a good night out.

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
