My wife and I came across this restaurant while walking around Sairee town and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. Everything was really quite good and service was quick (not the usual in Thailand). Definitely worth your time if you are a seafood lover.

This place came highly recommended and we know why. Everything was super fresh, We love the fresh shrimp appetizer in chili sauce, the steamed whole fish, the sushi on toast with chili ---- the ribs were ok a bit sweet and kind of not as amazing as all the fish dishes. I would stick to the seafood. We loved the... More

I was leery of this place only because it seemed like everyone went there and it could be overrated. NOPE! It was fantastic! We had Thai Fusion Barracuda and it was great! Appetizers - Sashimi was good. I know other reviewers said the flavor of fish was lost in the sauce. It KINDA is but its still great. Local Prawns... More

After a kind of disappointing experiences dinning on the Island of Koh Tao, we were glad to have joined this restaurant. The small restaurant is furnished in a simple but nice to the environment fitting way. We showed up at about 7pm and were lucky to get a table without reservation. The service was friendly and quick. We ordered the... More

It was my best meal in Thailand hands down!! If you are visiting Ko Tao Barracuda is a must!!!! You may need to make reservations during peak season as it is quite small.

My partner and I had dinner here a few nights ago and got the seafood platter. We did not enjoy the green topping on the muscles at all and felt that the texture and flavour did not compliment the muscle. The garlic prawns and barracuda were decent but not spectacular. The fish cakes had a good flavour but I can't... More

Hi there, Thank you for your recent review. I would just like to inform you in response to your review, we have now changed the way in which we present the muscles on the seafood platter, to a more traditional recipe, with a classic white wine and cream sauce. We are also no longer serving the cheese cake with fresh... More
