We really enjoyed dining at Barracuda; fresh seafood, oysters etc, we were so lucky to reserve a table on the balcony. It has a lovely view. Food was very delicious and very well presented. Staff was great. Memorable & romantic dining experience . Thanks.

This is a must visit restaurant when in St. Julians. It may seem like a tourist trap but it is a great restaurant that offers great seafood served in a great environment. Normally priced and very good service.

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.
