The best meal I had in the whole of South Africa! We dined Ada group of 8, and every single meal was brilliant. The service was fantastic too, such friendly staff. And all so reasonably priced, I can't recommend this restaurant enough.

Always very dependable, well done Barracudas, every time we have plenty to eat, good food and service at reasonable prices. Do try the steak or fish and chips on the special for that day

We went as a family of eight and, whilst my sirloin steak was very good, others had chicken schnitzel, which was dry, and fish & chips, which was overcooked in the deep-fryer. The ambience and service was very good.

We were staying about 10 minutes away and asked our hosts for a nice lunch restaurant. Having got the directions we took a wrong turn into Fish Hoek and stumbled upon this place. We were starving and decided the first place we found we would go for. The place looks like a cheaper cafe type place and has matching prices.... More

Always have great food and services. The pricing has gone up but that's just a sign of the times. Still think it's not bad value. Can get a little loud due to layout but very much worth it.

I live locally and eat here often. They do great Sunday lunches and value for money lunches in winter. Hake and chips and curries are good but my favourite is berries pavlova. Service is attentive and friendly.

Ate twice in 6 days here, both very enjoyable from the chicken schnitzel through all the fish mains and salads. The staff are fun and friendly and the manager explained how he made the chicken curry... Very helpful and friendly...made us feel so at home like we were regulars. Thank you so much, we were so glad we stopped in... More

Went in a party of four without a booking and enjoyed a superb meal with splendid service and great value for money. Try the chicken livers - historic - fish of the day bound to be great as we're 20 metres from the beach. I had local dish malva for desert - perfectly moist. To cap it all a Don... More

3 of us visited Barracudas late afternoon for a meal. The food was not great, but more than that, the staff were unfriendly and inattentive and we left the restaurant feeling disappointed. Not a good vibe there at all.

No kingklip, calamari only in deep fried strips and soggy. Not a meal to remember. Lovely company of friends therefore a pleasant evening.
