My favourite restaurant :-)

I live on Koh Tao so have obviously eaten at a lot of restaurants on the island but Barracuda is definitely my favourite. I have tried several dishes off the menu (as I keep going back!), and I have been pleased with them all. The food is amazing!!!, the service is great and the cocktails are yummy... read more

Me and ny girlfriend came in around 8 asking for a table. Got a reservation at 8.45 without problems. Service was great, among the best english of the waiters that i meet in Ko Tao. Had the onion badji and samosa for starters. These were both great. Non fatty and with a lot of flavor. Perfect starter. For main we... More

Our first night on Koh Tao we chose to eat at Barracuda. The service was great, the food delicious, and the cocktails refreshing. It is a well liked restaurant on the island, so be sure to book ahead. Have the chocolate tart after dinner!

Truly the only place to eat on Koh Tao if you want to eat seafood. We opted for the platter for two with an extra crab thrown in for good measure. Normally I'm not a massive fan of fish, but this was all pretty good. My only criticism would be that bearing in mind that this was a meal to... More

Obviously at the more expensive end in the range of food you can get in Koh Tao, but this place has made my mouth water constantly and left me wanting more. I will for that matter come back tonight, my boyfriend won't need any convincing either. Selection is wide, but concentrating on seafood. Don't get me wrong though when I... More

Recommended by various sites the Barracuda proved to be one of the highlights of our culinary experiences on Tao. A good varied menu in a small centrally based establishment that can be recommended without a shadow of a doubt.

Now I will give Serenity Bar the best bar on the island hands down and although their food is good, this place has the best food on the island. Everything on the menu is good. Mojitos are amazing. I'd expect to spend quadrupple if not more for the same quality food at home. It really is a four star dingin... More

we went last night and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Started raining and as we had the only table outside they couldn't do enough to be helpful. Good meal. Not great but excellent presentation and would definitely go back. Down side bit cramped and therefore an eating experience. We could have chosen better I'm sure. If your in... More
