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.

“Attitude much?”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

Well we wont be able to tell you about the food because we decided to leave this place after getting stuck up attitude from the waiters and the alleged owner/chef ...We reserved a table the day before and mentioned that we would like to sit outside. When we arrived they ushered us to last table inside (infont of the kitchen door) saying that this is the only table we have for you ( take it or leave it) although there was another table free but was "reserved" for someone else. Not sure about the logic behind this. Anyway, the food might be good but customer service clearly sucked.

“Simply the best”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Very very good food (fish), we got the mixed menu they advise (mixed seafood plate) which was just awesome. Very fresh fish and tasty sauces.
We could barely finish our dishes and had to skip dessert as quantity is also very good

It s in the high price range for Tao but the quality justifies it (approx 1000 BTH for 2 people)

“Best restaurant in Koh Tao”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The food is amazing.
It's the best restaurant I did during all my trip in Thailand. The menu is divine and it's very hard to choose as everything sounds so delicious.... and it is!
Products are very fresh and combined with herbs and spices in such a great way.
The wine is very good.

It's also one of the most expensive restaurant in Koh Tao but in terms of food there is no comparaison. And come on, it's still nothing compared to the same quality in Europe or in the US (it would be at least a 60€ bill per person).

Be sure to book a table as it's very small and everyone wants a table!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

We tried fish cakes and tuna sashimi for starters and both were delicious. For mains we had tuna with couscous and barracuda with roast potatoes, very tasty. I recommend this restaurant, but note that isn't cheap compared to other Koh Tao restaurants. However, you pay for quality.

“Good food but hot temperature”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

This is a nice and small restaurant, speciality sea food.
Food: good
Price: in line with the quality of food and location style.
Service: good

Problem is that inside it gets really hot even with the air fans you can suffer the heat.

Anyway, absolutely Is a place to be.
