“I wouldn't have guessed!”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

Coming from Canada, it's near impossible to find a good Italian restaurant. Everything has been 'Americanized' and is nothing is like what you'd find at the restaurants in Italy. On a trip to Panama, out on a small island, I never expected to encounter good, authentic Italian food. A very welcome surprise eating at Barracuda! We had the tuna carpaccio, salad, pizza, crab ravioli, all beyond expectations. After a week of eating at the seemingly ubiquitous fast-food quality restaurants on Bocas, it was great to finally stumble across some proper well-made food! If only they could open a branch a little further north too...

“Pleasant experience”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

What a calm beautiful place for my Thursday night! This is my second time here and it was even more amazing the second time around! Tonight I was able to try their fresh fish of the day with salad and potatoes.....wow. I just moved to Bocas Town and will definitely be coming here a lot!

“Worst pizza, worst cheese”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

No complaints about the good, seafront location and the attentive service. But the pizza, one of the specialties, is terrible and overpriced. Would not have gone if I had known.

“Best Tuna Carpaccio I've ever had.”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

What a great place to visit - especially if you have kids. The pizza was good and I can't tell you how nice it was to have tuna in a non-sushi/Asian style. The bread was good too - and good bread is hard to come by in Bocas. We didn't have the pasta - but it LOOKED fabulous!

Fresh and delicious. Loved it.

“Weird pasta”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Good service but pasta with tomato sauce tasted really fishy and not good. When we told the owner she got all defensive and told us it must be our palate! Didnt eat the food and she didnt discount it...very unfriendly. Waitress was nice
