Description: Located in the centre of Sairee Beach, Barracuda is a laid back and stylish dining alternative. Specialising in a large selection of seafood and Thai style fusion dishes. Within our extensive menu you are bound to find something to suit all tastes. After training as a Chef at, English's Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Brighton, straight from school in 1998, Ed moved to Koh Tao in February 2007, where he has since been working as a chef at various locations around the island. Ed had developed his menus using feedback he has received from his customers since he opened, Barracuda, in July 2010. With his latest menus, Ed has started to introduce the "Thai Fusion" range of dishes to suit all tastes, these are proving to be extremely popular with the locals and tourists alike.

“Mouth watering tuna salad!”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

The whole menu is ridiculously tempting, but I'm such a creature of habit that I struggled to get past the tuna salad (super fresh tuna steak, coated in sesame, seared and served on bed of leaf lettuce, baby asparagus, cherry tomatoes and baby potatoes). I was a regular at Barracuda but kept getting the same dish, apart from the night they were out of tuna and I moved on to the salmon fillet in a creamy garlic sauce on a bed of pesto mash. My mouth is watering at the memory. Ed (the owner) and his staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The restaurant is small so if you're with a group, it's best to book. It's easy to find, right next to the Queen's cabaret (which starts at 10.15pm)... so that's your after dinner entertainment sorted.

Try the Thai fish food plate. Lots of fresh fish!
Only for 2 persons, so if you are on your own, find a buddy :-(

“Great food”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

This restaurant is slightly more pricey than others in Sairee but worth it. The menu is mostly barracuda as the name suggests. There is a nice atmosphere and the waiting staff are really friendly. This place gets pretty busy so make a reservation if you want to eat at peak times.
