We had dinner at Barracuda twice on our trip and loved it. The tuna tartar is absolutely delicious! Definitely reserve a table outside to dine under the stars with your feet in the sand and the sound of the ocean only a few meters away

Tasty salads and pizzas. They offer 'white' pizzas - i.e. no tomato on them - which looked good. We went for lunch a couple of time with a couple of pizza perfectionists (teenagers!) who were very impressed. Beach bar vibe with comprehensive menu.

We had a very nice meal and thought this was the best place for fish in Santa Maria. The wine list was good and outside was extremely pleasant. The service was excellent and prices good.
