Our hotel recommended this place after we said we wanted to eat some good local seafood but not "break the bank". It was our favorite meal of the 9 days we spent in Koh Samui. We had the Tuna w/ pineapple and the Sea Bass with pesto and chorizo. yum! We are from LA and it reminded us of being... More

Took a taxi here from Chaweng just for this restaurant and it was well worth it. The owner was a nice man who reserved us a table as we walked in and nothing was available as it's a very small and quaint place. The food when we ate was delicious, some of the best lamb that we have eaten in... More

My family and I visited this restaurant which I found on tripadvisor last summer. It was lovely food and the service was wonderful! We would definitely return to this restaurant in a heartbeat as we did struggle to find somewhere as nice as this on our travels. The value for money is very good!

The restaurant was the best I have been to in all the years of coming to Koh Samui, The atmosphere, staff and food all are top. I went back three time out of my two week stay. Its a must.

Positives: Ferdinand is an absolute gentleman and a superb host to his customers. He and his staff offer the highest level of service with the addition of a subtle yet perfect amount of 'that personal touch', which I saw them deliver to each of the customers who filled the small but perfectly formed restaurant tonight. The restaurant is immaculate, well... More

Cosy little restaurant, tucked away down a side street. Well worth finding! Excellent, attentive service. Food delicious. We tried duck and sea bass for mains and all agreed they were yum! Variety of starters all voted great. A little bit different from all the other restaurants we have tried during our stay in Koh Samui and deserving of its high... More

As as my habit, I am evaluating this restaurant within its local context (and not, for example, to a meal in New York or London, etc.). Barracuda is a fine choice for dinner in Koh Samui. We were not staying particularly close by but it was worth the trip. The restaurant (which I understand is moving to the beach, yay!)... More

This was our third visit to this wonderful restaurant. Each year we come to Samui we have to visit it and it never disappoints us. Food is always delicious and exceptionally presented. Service is without a doubt excellent. The owner Ferdinand is hands on very friendly and professional, ensuring the whole environment works like clockwork. Whilst these are not Thai... More

A lovely friendly environment, with foot-tapping, head-bobbing music to groove you through the meal. As my partner pointed out: "We're on an island. There's a boat in the restaurant. It's called Barracuda. You should order fish and smile, and not moan about the duck." The service is warm and the seafood is really a pleasant taste adventure.

Food was excellent, especially the fish and good value for your money, the Service was very good and more than happy to recommend dishes and advise on if hot and spicy and would accommodate to your palette. I would highly recommend a visit.
