This restaurant is wonderful, and both the locals and online sources agree. Everyone in town, on dive boat, and while walking around, confirmed that this is a great restaurant. Food quality is off the chart, and although it was off season, and slow, it seems to be in a great courtyard, that much be much more entertaining during the peak... More

I highly recommended here. The chef cooks for the Thai Princess ;-) I passed here and saw loads people and a guy taking bookings so I thought wow nowhere else on the island takes bookings or has a wait time so maybe it is special. I put my name down and as we were only two we got a table... More

Have eaten here on two separate visits to Koh Tao and the quality was amazing high both times. Albeit a bit more expensive than street food or other restaurants, it really is worth the little bit more you pay. The food comes out at a quality that would impress me back in Australia. I will eat here at least once... More

Everything was excellent and having eaten in Bali where food standards are high, I was impressed by the quality. We didn't have mains or wine, but based on the above, we have eaten there... More

Food there are very good taste. Unfortunately we dont have the electric fan at the table.was heat but staffs were very nice that they tried to switch table for us when the table outside is available.

I'd recommend booking this place in advance, as it fills up very quickly and gets very hot during March / April time. Having said that, that is the only downside as the food is exemplary, a full range of food from around the world is on offer, cooked to a very high standard, well priced and almost alarmingly attentive and...

I had lamb and it was cooked perfectly. Very nice indeed. The meals are on the pricey side for Thailand, so I only visited once, but if I wasn't watching my money then I'd have happily gone back.

Thank Arron B

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.
