Had lunch on a slow day (many other places closed) and enjoyed it even though a couple of dishes were sold out. Relatively small location waterside. Italian proprietress hasn't forgotten her roots and gave good advice and service (getting through a huge amount of work as she handled front of house by herself). Portions were generous but not excessive. The... More

We went to Barracuda when in Bocas Town looking for something for lunch. We were both in the mood for pizza, and this place really hit the spot. The outdoor dining was nice in the afternoon but a little hot. If I could have, I would have wanted to go back for dinner since the spot was really lovely at... More

The food was great! Lobster amazing but what killed it was the live music. The space is tight and not really a great place for a jamming violin and a loud muffler horn. It was too much. All that aside, I would return for the food but run if I saw the music duo.

Really liked the drinks, not so great view of the dirty water next to our table and where the water taxis dock-trash of every variety. Made us nervous about the water that was used in the drinks.

We had lunch here and ended up spending more than $50 for 3 people with no alcohol. My pizza was very greasy. I didn't finish it and didn't want the leftovers. The lasagna was average and the fish of the day was fine. Even though we speak Spanish, they got our drink orders wrong and seemed to not hear us... More

The crab salad, tuna carrpachio and homemade pasta are wonderful! The owner was friendly and inviting. We ate here on our last night and enjoyed it so much that we made it a point to enjoy our lunch here before leaving.
