The jewel in the crown of Cape Verde cuisine is its fresh fish, from the famous Atlantic tuna to the wahoo and the many species caught closer to shore such as the Garoupa or the Esmoregal. Every day small, artisanal fishing boats dock at the Santa Maria pontoon bridge just 100 m from the Barracuda restaurant to offload fresh fish. Their skippers know us and know that we select only the very best of their catch for our customers.
