This restaurant is a busy little spot as the food, location, staff, sunset and drinks are incredible. The Red Snapper is delicious and definitely worth the visit. The atmosphere is fantastic, you can be seated inside or on the beach. The ambience is just perfect.

A wonderful friend was celebrating her big 40 and imagine there was 16 or so at the table(s)......It was hosted by a real gentleman Mauricio, who has hosted several of this parties. To those very few who somehow have not been to the El Barracuda. It is a beach restaurant and bar, not the fanciest in decor, but what it... More

First visit. Wanted a sunset view and simple fresh fish tacos. Ended up eating the tuna sashimi (melts in your mouth). Shared shrimp and fish tacos. Sauce on shrimp tacos was excellent. Fish taco was just what I was looking for. It appeared that a lot of locals were ordering steaks and burgers. You have a choice of eating in... More

Dining either on the beach or just above it. Can't ask for much more. Food is good and reasonably priced. Service friendly and fairly prompt. Locals brought us here, should be recommendation enough. We had fire dancers on the beach, but I'm under the impression that was not an always thing.

We live in PV part of the year and we never miss a chance to eat here. The seafood is always fresh, not sloppy greasy tourist food. Simple and delicious. The vibe is perfect for a casual beach bar/restaurant lunch, sit at the beach tables with your toes in the sand or enjoy the quaint open air restaurant just above.... More

I have been to El Barracuda many times before and the food is always good, my husband loves the Dynamite Seafood, If you like something very different and delicious try this, It is rice with mushrooms, shrimp and other seafood with a spicy creamy sauce baked on top. This trip I tried the Ribs, the sauce is wonderful not your... More

The family went here on a recommendation and we were not disappointed overall. The food on the beach value here is better than other restaurants closer to los muertos pier. The food was decent but nothing outstanding. The other people around us were loud and vaping constantly, with their dog always by our table looking for scraps. Overall not a... More
