There are limited places to eat in Fish Hoek but this place stood out way above them anyway. The food was tasty and the service exceptional.

We always enjoy a good meal at Barracudas. Quiet and peaceful atmosphere. And good, fresh seafood! And if sea bass is the line fish of the day - try it! It's the best!

Excellent variety to choose from. Delicious curries. Cheese cake to die for. The service was very good and everyone enjoyed their meals.

The food was freshly prepared and beautifully presented. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. We went as a family group and ordered the fresh sea bass (delicious), the mixed platter and the calamari.

Barracudas is a restaurant which tries to offer good value to locals with decor which is slightly better than average in Fishhoek! The service is pretty good and the food ok.
