Best service I have ever experienced in the area! Fantastic attitude and fantastic atmosphere. The only thing better is not only the quality of their food but the quantity. Food was amazing but with portions that big there was no ways I could finish. Definitely going back!!!

The queen Prawns were delicious but expensive. Calamari was tender and delicious. Sadly there was no linefish and no mussels. The service was good and prices reasonable overall. This is great for straight off the beach delicious dining.

Great family restaurant with a vibe in a relaxed friendly environment with attentive staff. No frills but lots of effort. The waiter Henry was an absolute star. The food was delicious and for dessert, Remy Martin and expresso.

We go nearly every week and enjoy the fixed price lunch dish available Mondays to Fridays. Nothing fancy, but everything is freshly prepared. Our favourites are the calamari ( non of that frozen stuff you usually get but soft and sea-fresh), the curry and also fish and chips. The desserts are excellent and made on the premises. It is a...

Enjoyed a leisurely meal with fresh fish and the beef special of the day. Very nice spacing between the tables so you don't feel like you are on top of other diners. Service slow but T.I.A (This Is Africa). The location was an easy walk from the house we rented. They offer highchairs for toddlers and comfortable banquet seating with... More

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
