Lovely spot with delicious food. Never had such good Bruschetta, it had large avocado chunks and great flavour. The tuna tartar was also amazing! I wish I could have tried more dishes.... Had a bootle of a great Mexican wine too!

Have been meaning to try Barracuda for a couple years now. Tonight was the night!! Beach was very crowded all day and we had a great seat at Barracuda to watch the sunburned Exodus! Dinner was quite enjoyable. The callimari was tasty, the shrimp ceviche some of the best I have ever tasted! The shrimp Ajillo was a nice surprise,... More

Spent the day at the beach at San Pancho (San Francisco) and of course had the munchies before hitting the bus back to Puerto Vallarta. Our group of six ordered fish tacos. Of course I was indecisive so I ordered both the grilled fish taco and the battered deep fried. Both were excellent and the shredded cabbage was amazing. Service... More

My Yoga retreat group went for a day at the beach in San Fransisco Mexico and stopped in at Barracuda's for lunch. We loved it so much we had to come back in to town again just to eat there.

We stopped by Barracuda later in the afternoon when a lot of the other restaurants are closed while setting up for dinner. Ceviche and margaritas... yum!

I've been in San Pancho 10 days and I've eaten here almost every day, for either lunch or dinner. At lunch I can't get enough of their tostadas, especially the Tuna/Serrano. Each tostada is prepared with different seasoning and comes piled high with the freshest fish and other ingredients. At 30-50 pesos each they are a total bargain. I've been... More

This is the place locals... and tourists, visit when they want fish tacos served with an ice cold beer. The Mexican food joint in a Mexican pueblo. Service is great, servers friendly and it's right on the main drag easy to find and great for people watchers.

Not super authentic but is pretty tasty if you have a Western pallet. Ordered a shrimp taco and it was undercooked (batter was still raw). I should have sent it back but service is slow so I just picked around it.

How this place is ranked so high is unbelievable. Place looks very nice from outside, kinda modern and fresh and clean looking and was also very busy, therefore we decided to have our lunch here. Food and drinks was very dissapointing. It wasnt authentic Mexican. Im sure its an american owner. Ordered Aguachiles my favourite dish in the world and... More
