We called in for a drink and a snack and it was very relaxing. Watching the world go by and seeing the locals go about their daily lives.

We were very disappointed in our meals and service here. The location is fabulous but we found the staff to be surly and uncommunicative and there was very little atmosphere. The food portions were very small, my husband and I shared a whole fish dish and there wasn't really enough fish to feed 2. My son had the ribs which... More

My family and I went to the Barracuda restaurant following a recommendation from our taxi driver as a great place for local fish dishes. The food itself was really lovely but unfortunately there were nowhere near enough waiting staff. We stood completely unnoticed for about ten minutes before anyone even acknowledged we were there, several other couples/families walked away. The... More

Waisted 15 mins to be spotted. Then seated at a non ready table. Then left waiting. Only for waitress to walk past and say opps what can I get u. Four meals requested. All came out at different times. Food good though but very pricey when.u factor in poor service.

This place serve some amazing plates. The entrees were good. You can pay at the exchange rate of 110 escudos for 1 euro. The prices are reasonable. Friendly staff

Visited the restaurant to get food and a few drinks with my mother at dinner time. The waitress couldn't speak a word of English and abruptly told us to leave. Hardly anybody in the place. Would not go back

Service was a bit chaotic even though it was not full. House wine was not to our taste but drinkable. I may have just chosen the wrong thing, I was hoping for seared tuna and asked the waitress if any of the tuna options were cooked this way, she recommended one and when it came, although nice, it was not...
