Very poor welcome, almost felt we were an intrusion. I asked if the fish would be filleted and was assured it would, clearly it was done very carelessly and there were so many bones. To be honest I couldn't wait to get out never would go back.

We booked a table for twelve at very short notice. The restaurant has all the ambience of a fine dining establishment. One of our party, my wife is coeliac, which the restaurant caters for, is part of the reason we chose it. They really do not rush here. We were all given an amuse bouchée, which was tasty. My wife...

The food was nice but the service was very slowly and we had inattentive waiters. It was not the first time we had dinner here but not sure if we will go again, and not for sure with clients!

This restaurant deserves its status! The very last evening before flying back home I dined here, but unfortunately I was on my own even though I had made reservations for two. I felt a bit uncomfortable showing up in such restaurant without my friend along, but facing a problem that day herself she could not follow. The friendly and expert... More

A brilliant night, we can't wait to come back again. My wife and I met a client and his wife for dinner this Sunday night and could not have hoped for a better night out. We had tempura prawns, scallops, lobster ravioli etc - we dined right across the board. My wife had a couple of glasses of Cabernet Sauvignon... More

We have been there many times. The ambiance is perfect as the service and usually the food as well. This time we didn't see the fish display as usual, or we didn't notice, usually it is right in front the entrance door. We had the shrimps and calamari tempura which was not good at all, and the chateaubriand meat for... More

Beautiful stone building on St. Julian's bay. Enviting room with fireplace lounge and many tables within water view. Friendly and professional service. Food was delicious. Starter of tempura prawn & octopus, very flavourful seafood and super tender octopus! Well done! Crepes for dessert was entertaining and super tasty. Merci Barracuda restaurant!

Barracuda is situated right on the waterfront with a wonderful view across the harbour. The food is excellent and service is attentive without being intrusive. I would recommend a visit if you are ever in Malta.

Amazing dinner, wine and staff. Definitely the best restaurant in Malta! If you love fish then don't look past the fish soup.

We have been in barracuda restaurant last september. It was a perfect location to enjoy the fresh fish of this beautiful island. Starter were very good. As you expect from a cuisine that mix arabic and mediterranean culture. Main courses less traditional but also very good. They have a nice wines list. Try local wine.
