They have a great all day breakfast plus a large choice of other dishes. Are willing to change around food if wanted. Also gluten free pasta available. Helpful friendly staff

This place has become our favourite restaurant in Watford simply because it is one of the few places in town that still knows what hospitality and good food is really about. Watford in recent years has become a mediocre place to eat out where demand outstrips supply and the complacency of restaurants, many of which are boring chains, has lead to eating out being a disappointing, expensive experience both in terms of the quality of the food and service without a smile.

Barracuda is the exception. The food is delicious, reasonably priced and fresh. When you've been the once, you'll feel like valued customer when you return. I really can't rate it highly enough. It's a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the High Street.

Thoroughly recommend their full English breakfasts and they're lunchtime specials. Great choice for vegetarians too.

Our favourite "go to" restaurant for special events/ celebrations. Original menu- not like the tedious pizza/ pasta restaurants that seem to to springing up by the minute in Watford. Best steaks in town- better than Prime & Middletons- & considerably cheaper! Menu includes various chicken dishes, plus liver & I am told the risottos are great. Good wine choices. Fantastic service- the main man always greets you like a long lost friend & seems to have a permanent smile on his face. Still many people that have never heard of Barracuda- a shame, they don't know what they are missing. Location not ideal, under the fly over, but always quite fun watching the Saturday night clientele staggering up & down the High Street. Format seems to be successful, as further restaurants under the Barracuda name opened in Bushey & Abbots Langley. Also do great breakfast & coffees.

Myself and 3 others visited Barracuda on Friday evening.
We have all lived in and around Watford all our lives and this was our first visit.
We all had such a lovely time.
Service was spot on! Staff were friendly and very attentive.
All of our food we ordered was cooked to perfection! We will certainly return very soon!

Went on an evening before a show and not disappointed. Wonderful chicken meals x 2 from the set menu and wine.
I love this place- v lovely waiter- They make such an effort - transforming the place in the evening with proper linen table cloths and napkins but what is more important- the food served, matches this high standard.
