The food and service at Barracuda was good but the period were small and the prices were high for a beach restaurant.

Fresh food right on the beach of Puerto Vallarta. My husband and I both had the Special. It was Mahi-Mahi with vegetables, cashews, and rice. Excellent dinner while watching the waves roll in.

Stop and relax. You deserve it. A great selection of beer and the sangria seems to be a house favorite. The view of the sunset couldn't be more perfect.

I'm not sure about online reservations, we walked in waited for about 15 minutes and the hostess (very nice) had a handwritten list. No credit cards accepted! Which was a surprise, since there is no visible sign.
