The barracuda is one of the best choices in Malta. Food is excellent, an exciting wine list and very friendly service. Enjoy the view with a delicious swordfish steak and a Mediterranean atmosphere. The attentive Mr Ali can recommend a speciality on request. Martin (Germany)

The food doesn't really count for much if the welcome is poor, and that is what I experienced here. Patronising staff who care more about their own image than the client's needs. Maybe I just got them on a bad night?

We really enjoyed dining at Barracuda; fresh seafood, oysters etc, we were so lucky to reserve a table on the balcony. It has a lovely view. Food was very delicious and very well presented. Staff was great. Memorable & romantic dining experience . Thanks.

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.
