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.

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.

We received some great service here. We arrived 10 minutes before opening time but they seated us anyway, later on we needed some cigarettes but since they don't sell them they volunteered to go buy us some at the local shop, and their english was the best we had heard outside of Bangkok.

Overpriced and well below average for the type of cuisine. It's some kind of fusion with tuna tartar and samosas... We were a large group of people and tasted many dishes. Absolutely nothing stood out, it was simply not tasty. The only thing that was just OK was the samosas.

Have had the opportunity to eat wonderfully throughout Thailand-north and south. Incredible street food, to top of the line restaurants and I have to say that the experience (quality of food, great service, ambiance and price) is OUTSTANDING in the Barracuda in Sairee on Koh Tao. The oysters are massive, succulent and properly prepared...you will not have better anywhere in... More

Good food, good staff and a lively atmosphere. You have to make reservations to dine there but it is worth the effort.

There are two different locations of this place in koh tao and we went to the newest one which was a bit of a walk up from sairee but well worth it. The food was great and so were the cocktails. They had nice couches to sit on. Definitely recommend!!

Right in the heart of the busy area you certainly need to book before visiting here, they were extremely busy the night we went but still managed to serve high quality food, the mussels were some of the best we've ever had, the only thing stopping this being 5 star was that the restaurant was far too warm, it may...
