Barracuda is situated right on the waterfront with a wonderful view across the harbour. The food is excellent and service is attentive without being intrusive. I would recommend a visit if you are ever in Malta.

Amazing dinner, wine and staff. Definitely the best restaurant in Malta! If you love fish then don't look past the fish soup.

We have been in barracuda restaurant last september. It was a perfect location to enjoy the fresh fish of this beautiful island. Starter were very good. As you expect from a cuisine that mix arabic and mediterranean culture. Main courses less traditional but also very good. They have a nice wines list. Try local wine.

The first time I visited I very much enjoyed it but when I went back after a year I was very disappointed! Food quality went down massively even though the restaurant is still gorgeous with beautiful view.

My husband and I booked this from the internet, we choose the degustion menu, chefs choice. So absolutely amazing at Euro 60 per head plus wine. Executive chef Andrew furnished us with eight courses of pure delight, from carpachio of red prawn, through lobster, scallops, ravioli with prawn and scallops to fillet of beef and pudding duet to die for!...

Just had a super meal at Barracuda. Service was great and we both had well cooked starters and main courses: sea bass and lamb. Service was great and staff very friendly. Look forward to a return visit on our next trip to Malta.

For the money that you pay the one thing that lets this place down is the fact that the service is too slow. I accept the fact that in a stylish, elegant restaurant you also don't want to be rushed but this place does need to speed up a bit. When I needed a drink it was hard to even... More

The greeting, menu, the view and the decoration. All are tempting despite the tiny toilet. Some of the appetizers were delicious, while the others are not good shots. Fish is recommended.

My experience in this restaurant has been really frustrating. When you read the menu you have the feeling that it is an Italian restaurant, but when you eat what you ordered you imlediately understand that the chef is not Italian nor that he has never been trained on Italian dishes. Menu is really misleading. I was not satisfied AT ALL... More
