This restaurant is more of a cafe during the day and a restaurant at night, very reasonable priced food and drinks, is very popular at night so pre-booking usually recommended in advance.

The restaurant is on the water's edge, with fine sea views, which we could enjoy from our table on the balcony. We had anticipated a fine dining experience, and were not disappointed. The food was excellent - we enjoyed quail, carpaccio, and risotto. Good wine...More

The Barracuda has been a regular haunt of ours since a first visit about 20 years ago. It remains worth a visit although we did feel that this time their standards had slipped just a little bit turning an amazing place into just a "very...More

This is not a question about the Barracuda restaurant but appears to be about a specific incident experienced by a patron. All I can say is that my experience at Barracuda has always been positive.

Sorry but you have sent your response/frustration to one of the visitors/reviewers and not to the restaurant itself. You need to go back on the site and see how you send the message to them as I am just like you - a diner.
