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.

Knew this place was popular so booked a table. Staff friendly and helpful with suggestions. Starters tasted amazing. I had the steak for main it was a little tough but I put this down to beef is not a popular dish in Thailand. Parents had the king mackerel and salmon and both said it was some of the best fish...

Tucked away behind Sairee beach, this restaurant was recommended by my hotel - and I'm really glad I took their advice. The menu is lengthy and interesting, the quality superb, the pricing more than fair and the ambience is extremely relaxed and inviting. A word of advice - do consider reserving a table as Barracuda understandably has a good reputation... More

Highly recommend this place. Went with a big group of friends and everything that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. Steak is the best!

We booked private dining while we were staying at The Place in Koh Tao for our honeymoon and my husband's birthday and it was absolutely perfect. We had the seafood platter and it was massive, all really fresh and probably enough for four people, never mind just two of us! I would highly recommend this or a visit to the... More

You need reservations to dine here. My fiancé and I shared the seafood for two and it was a ton of food and everything was delicious. Those buttery potatoes make me want to go back.

I keep on going back for amazing dinner experience! Favourites for starters are most definitely Toast skågen and Duck liver pate, amazing!!!! It is a tough choice between the two, so I recommend sharing. For main I love the salmon fillet, perfectly cooked every time! Thank you Ed and your dedicated staff!

Barracuda is simply outstanding. Having travelled South East Asia for 4 months, you become accustomed to your partners food arriving, him eating it and the plate being taken away before you've seen a glimpse of your meal. Not barracuda. Owned by an Englishman, barracuda measures up to fine dining in England with a Thai price tag, who could argue with... More

One of the nicest places we have been to on ko tao but its also fairly pricey. Food was very good. Service came with a smile which seems to be a rarity in Thailand. Would recommend the seafood platter... just don't have a starter before hand as there is a lot of it!

Great food, great service. Well above any meal I've had in Thailand. Every night this place was packed and completely booked out and there is a very good reason. I had a surf and turf and for the first time in a long time the steak came out as rare as I'd asked for. If you want to treat yourself,... More
