Seafood Restaurant
$$$
“Prominently located in a lovingly restored, early 18th century villa at the tip of Balluta Bay, Barracuda, (est 1978) has been and very much still is, one of Malta’s longest established fine dining restaurants. Finely polished glass and silverware twinkle in the soft muted lighting as you weave through the classic décor towards your table: either inside or on one of the terraces literally meters above the water. It’s a picture perfect restaurant for a romantic occasion, to entertain special guests or for holiday makers wanting something more exclusive. 194, Main Street, St Julian's Call to book a table because you might find it fully booked!”
