Amazing Platters!

The Staff were very attentive, the cocktails delicious but the sharing platters even better! We had one with tandoori chicken, bbq ribs and duck pancakes and all were cooked to perfection! A great spot just off Sairee Beach.

We loved this restaurant and would really recommend it. The food is SO good and the service is brilliant, there's also a really nice atmosphere in there. We had tuna steak and shredded duck, with mango and sticky rice to finish and it was all beautiful. The lovely Thai waiter was telling us how they're opening a second bigger restaurant... More

Enjoyed a fantastic evening at this restaurant, the fish was beautifully cooked and the presentation creative and in-keeping with Thai cuisine. We had the baked barracuda in Parma ham with feta and pesto, and the barracuda in yellow curry and banana leaves with morning glory. Both were delicious and of plentiful size. Cocktails were also excellent. Definitely recommend on a... More

Reservations are a must but well worth it. The Lychee Mojito was mind boggling good. Worth the trip in its own. My boyfriend and I shared the mixed seafood platter thing of all fishy things caught that day. AMAZING. also if you still have room, the mango sticky rice is the best I had the entire time I was in... More

This restaurant is the start of Koh Tao! A must stop for a great meal. Order as much as you can possibly fit in! The Pate is exemplary. Carpaccio dish is too big and hard to get through

I've visited Barracuda for dinner on a good number of occasions now, and now matter what I try in always impressed by the quality, flavor, and price. Even when the island is slow you might have to book ahead as this also where locals head for dinner. Wonderful food. Great wine. Visit. You won't regret.

The restaurant is located along one of the walking streets. For that reason we opted for a small tables inside. We went for the house specialty "Barracuda All-in seafood platter". The platter was huge and loaded with fresh fish dishes. The restaurant offers some good wines to complement the food. Not cheap but very good food for a reasonable price.
