We visited Barracuda which was an easy walk from our hotel. We were in the mood for shisha and Barracuda has excellent options. We sat on one of the curbside tables, enjoyed shisha and tea and watched the steady stream of dinner boats and people moving by. A very relaxed location with excellent service. We didn't have dinner but the... More

If you are looking place to eat fresh fish you must go here. It is not a fancy place with glamorous people, it is just about the food. Outside the restaurant seems not so attractive, but once you test a piece of food you will get the idea what is real fish dish. Every morning the restaurant receives fresh fish... More

First time in barracuda, the place is ok with fantastic photos of Alexandria, Egypt and Old Egyptian music. Sea food was ok, fried calamari wasn't good, singari hamour wasn't good and red sniper with potatoes was good. They don't offer complemtary salad as regular seafood places offer but the service is good and they are honest. Overall, it's a good... More

One of the key seafood restauerant in Dubai, Barracuda remains a landmark for good, fresh seafood. Better to visit off season though, during the w-e in the winter is extremely busy, and service suffers. Nice selection of fresh catch, all on display on ice, amazing clams, great starters. Unfortunately you can't book, so try to be there early. Prices are... More

Seafood, a few meters from the beach sounds like a good idea but not here. From the prices you would think you are going to get good service, clean food and some respect. The service was slow, the "fresh" seafood was sitting on ice for any and everyone to handle, the manager would pass by and flip the fish over... More

I friend introduced us to this little place and we love it! Go out to the fresh fish on ice, choose you fish and then discover new (and traditional) ways to have it cooked/prepared - to perfection. Amazing value for money when compared to the hotels further along beach road.

When the craving for "different" food happened, we drove to Barracuda on Jumeriah Road - and although we did know about the excellent Egyptian cuisine served there, we had never quite "explored" it. And, truth be told - we still wonder why we never went there before! Let's get the smaller things out of the way - the outdoor seating... More

Staying in Jumeirah

Neighbourhood Profile
Years ago, before the skyscrapers, before the 12-lane highway, there was only Jumeirah. In fact, when the UAE was formed, its rulers signed the agreement in Union House, at the very start of Jumeirah Beach Road. Often called “The Beverly Hills” of Dubai, a drive down Beach Road reveals one enormous, lavish villa after another. Originally residential-only neighbourhoods, they are now also home to an array of cafes, smart boutiques, and art galleries. Home to one of Dubai’s few public beaches, this recently renovated area includes a new boardwalk, running and walking track, with changing facilities and cafes along the way. Another landmark, Jumeirah Mosque, is the only mosque in Dubai that can be entered by non-Muslims. As part of the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, the mosque hosts regular tours and talks about Islam, as part of an “Open Doors, Open Minds” program. A wonderful way to understand more about the UAE and Islam.
