Barracudas has 2 menus and both are excellent. The one we chose from was the menu which has all the meals costing R55 each. My wife and i both chose the Iconic "Steak, egg & Chips" ! The medium Sirloin was of generous size and perfectly grilled. It was a high quality meal at a fair and reasonable price. We... More

We went to Barracudas with visiting family on a Sunday evening. We did not book and were easily able to find a table. All of us had sirloin steaks or salad. My sirloin was very tender and tasty and cooked to my request. I'd also included calamari rings with my order and these were also very nice. Everyone else raved... More

We were the only people in the restaurant and had a grand welcome. The disappointing factors were the chicken schnitzel which was tough and dry, and the hard crust lacerated my mouth! The mushroom sauce was merely a thin white sauce with two mushrooms floating on top and the "cauliflower and spinach in sauce" was the same sloppy white sauce... More

We loved our meal at Barracudas. The steak was cooked to perfection according to my son. I had the prawns and ribs which were delicious, the meat melted in my mouth. We deemed this the best food we had tasted on our visit to the area. It was a lovely friendly atmosphere. If you're in Fishhoek you should definitely try... More

What a lovely diner. On the beach front with a beautiful interior. They have a great variety to offer from fresh seafood to steak. Their home made desserts are to die for & the presentation is out of the books. Highly recomment Barracudas. Just note they are closed on Mondays.

We've always been accommodated with kids, the service is always homely and friendly, the staff know their menu and it seems couples and groups enjoy this place as well. The food is always fresh and beautifully prepared - every meal ordered, no matter how fussy the eater, from ages 2 to 80, the plates always go back to the kitchen... More

We were very impressed with this restaurant. The childrens meals were so tasty and we had the evenings special, which was a curry, it was divine. On the board they have nightly specials and I would have loved to try every one of them. Really worth a visit for top notch food.

Amazing food. Brilliant ambiance. Outstanding service. We ate here with family friends about a month ago and it was simply amazing, Henry Sibiya waited on us and, I have to say, he's one of the best waiters I've ever had! Food, was excellent and beautifully presented. Desert was homemade and DELICIOUS! Great atmosphere and overall experience. The owner of this... More

Just returned from South Africa and took our daughters to Barracudas and they both loved it. Loved the new service plates and presentation has been greatly improved. I was exceptionally impressed to learn that Nasim has taken the desision to remove the King Klip from the menu as it is no longer sustainable and in South Africa most of it... More
