Sadly had a very unmemorable meal here..food was pretty bland. We tried the grilled prawns,prawn curry and grilled calamari,while everything was fresh,the meals sadly lacked any form of flavor.

Hands on, personal service from the owner. Steak, ribs and seafood specials daily. Great value for money! Also, daily lunch specials. Huge venue, great for functions. We had steak with the best onion rings, followed by yummy cheesecake and malva pudding. I highly recommend Barracudas.

Excellent food! Barracudas raises the bar for service, value and food in Fish Hoek. Our favourite restaurant in the Western Cape. We always felt relaxed and enjoyed our meals. We spent 6 weeks in Fish Hoek and returned time and again to Barracudas. Wonderful staff...and the very best fish and chips in town.More

Just back in Scotland after a five week break in Fish Hoek. We tried a few restaurants over the time, but our main go to eatery was Barracudas, always a welcoming smile each time we arrived, the menu was nice and even during load shedding...the menu was fine. Very attentive staff and the cost was very reasonable.More

Load shedding and COVID has caused havoc with the restaurant trade. The manager remains attentive and the food was good, but the lack of variety on the menu made me give a lower rating this time. Need some additional steak types not just sirloin. Not...bad at all though.More

We phoned to book a table at 18:45 christmas eve and asked if we could be seated next to a window. We were told the restaurant will be extremely busy with a lot of bookings and that she would see what she could do. We...asked what time the kitchen was closing and was told 20:00. When we arrived for our reservation we found a  quite relaxed restaurant not at all what was mentioned on the phone. We could choose where ever we would like to sit and were served by a waiter with an attitude that she was doing us a favour to be there in times like these. The exception to the night was the food, it was good except for 'margirine' lemon sauce in the so called "lemon butter" sauce on the  seafood platter. Never have I ever but that's fine... 19:45 comes I'm still peckish  and would like to order a steak. I wanted to get my order in before 20:00 to not upset the kitchen, only to get told the kitchen is closed, the owner has closed it early due to it being Christmas eve. Our waitress said with an attitude "I dont make the rules" and mentioned how there is nothing she can do about.  I decided to speak to the owner about was going on, but unfortunately also only got some attitude and a comment of "you should have told the waitress earlier if you wanted to order more", Since when is it my job to keep the waiter informed when you guys close the kitchen early... You as the owner should have come and spoken to all your guests and explained you are going to close the kitchen early due to it being Christmas eve and asked if there is any hot food orders before the kitchen closed. This would have been the proffessional thing to do,  especially in times like these when restaurants supposedly need business during covid and lockdown. When it was time to order desserts the waiter came and pulled out a chair, slams the board down on it and says with such a stinking attitude "HERE'S THE DESSERTS",and walked away! As a group we decided to leave and have desserts and drinks at Dixies since we weren't welcome at Barracudas. Dixies was a lovely experience with outstanding service and food which made up for the night and terrible service at Barracuda's. I would just like to say this to the owner and waiter if you don't want people in your restaurant on Christmas Eve don't open and a little communication and a sincere apology goes along way... I totally get it, you want to go home to your families early for Christmas eve, then COMMUNICATE with your guests as to what is happening, instead of leaving them in the dark to experience poor service, because you don't want to be there. It is a shame to say we won't be eating there again even though the food is usually really good, but the service will spoil the meal without a doubt.More

Consistently great food, service and wine list. The specials change daily and include Nasin’s (the Indian owners) excellent Durban curries. The Sunday roasts are great value, too.
