GREAT FOOD AND DRINK

Was recommended to us by locals. All 4 of us had the fish platter, was excellent. Too much food to eat and a wide selection of different fish. Had the best G&T since arriving in Thailand.

July and August - mmmmmm- must be Barracuda time. There are now 2 Barracuda Restaurants in Sairee. The Barracuda is located in the North of Sairee Beach on the "Walking Street" (closed to motorised traffic from 6 pm - well - it's supposed to be.) The first and original Barracuda Restaurant is usually booked out solid by 7 pm. If... More

I happened to visit this place in a farewell dinner. It was a big wow. The lamb shanks just melted off the bone (possibly the best I ever had). The ribs that I ordered were real good and I liked the sauces. Its a must visit for anyone interested in barbecue. Do try the seafood platter (I missed it and... More

We had two fantastic meals here - very delicious - though be warned the servings are very generous so don't order too much by way of starters! One of us enjoys seafood so had delicious tasty fish and seafood, but there are also other tasty options - meat and vegetarian. Reservations are a good idea as it can get very... More

Really good seafood restaurant. Even the vegetarian dishes are delicous. Try to make a reservation, cause it's very hard to get a table without one. Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I arrived to Barracuda on a Tuesday evening to be told they were fully booked, so we made a reservation for two days later. Just a warning that it is very likely you will need to make a reservation to eat here, they are fully booked most evenings - unless you try your luck at about 9.30pm... More

We went to the sister restaurant and had an absolutely delicious meal. The service is excellent and the owner is keen to ensure everyone feels welcome. Make sure you book in advance. This is a treat not to be missed.

We really enjoyed ourselves here. If you get there early, like before 6 you're likely not to need a reservation, but reservations are preferred here. Our dinner was fantastic! The snapper was perfectly prepared with the most delicious flavors of lemongrass, lime and chili. The service was quick and attentive. My hubby says the ribs were quite good too but... More

This place has a legitimate chef who knows how to make a mean meal. Out whole party's dishes were excellent and the seafood platter for 2+ people was out of control. I was very pleased with my steak, the interesting flavors it was paired with, and how it was cooked. The best meal I had in Koh Tao, no contest.... More
