Lovely food and good service (although maybe not as good as the prices would suggest, I think that's more of a British/malta difference). Extensive and good wine menu Gorgeous views and good atmosphere not spoiled by the noisy political celebrations going on! We had beef...More

We had dinner at The Barracuda and couldn't be more delighted with it. The food was excellent with the staff attentive but not over bearing. The view over the bay as the sun went done is breath taking. 5 stars!!!!!

The chef attended in person to discuss his tasting menu and our likes/dislikes and then served the food personally. The preparation was excellent, the food imaginative and the wines well chosen and generous

How could your public relations manager have the audacity to lie in response to my review? We were not offered a replacement meal, we were not offered a complimentary drink and when I asked for the manager (having hardly touched my so called filleted mullet which was actually a plate of mushy seabass full of bones), I was told by the waitress he did not want to speak to me. Yes we got a ten percent discount on the bill (not requested) but I should not have been served this at all. Further if your manager clearly recalled my visit he would have known that I was a female.

This is not a question about the Barracuda restaurant but appears to be about a specific incident experienced by a patron. All I can say is that my experience at Barracuda has always been positive.

Sorry but you have sent your response/frustration to one of the visitors/reviewers and not to the restaurant itself. You need to go back on the site and see how you send the message to them as I am just like you - a diner.
