We came around New Year time and you need to reserve because they are often fully booked but you'll discover why when you get there! The food is delicious, it is a great fusion between Thai and European food. There are so many good dishes on the menu that we came a second time! We each had the barracuda specialties... More

We dinned here during our stay in Koh Tao after seeing the reviews on TA and were not disappointed, we were quickly seated during a busy service and felt really welcomed by the English and Thai Staff. We sampled the Chowder, King prawns and fresh barracuda which were all fresh and superb. A restaurant well worth seeking out and one... More

We came here feeling very excited about a change of pace cuisine wise after weeks of roaming around Thailand eating Thai food. I ordered the stuffed chicken breast and tuna sashimi and my boyfriend ordered barracuda cakes and red curry. I was surprised by the size of the portions for our appetizers--they were huge. The sashimi was served at room... More

Hi there, I would just like to begin my apologising once again for the situation that occurred with the chicken in my restaurant the other night. You are totally correct in your response, that there really is no excuse for serving undercooked chicken and I am deeply sorry that this happened. However to future readers I would just like to...

My wife and I ate here and found it fantastic. The drinks and food are top notch. Be ready for some great seafood. If you can try and sit closer to the entrance as the inside is quite hot.

Because it was highly recommended by advices on the site we went there blindfolded, whereas it is surrounded by rather unsavoury bars. We were highly disapointed. Primary the service was really poor, absolutly shambollic. It seems you don't worth a glass if you order beers! The meals were really well served with a very nice touch, almost french touch ;-)...

We rocked up here without a reservation 10 minutes after finding it on TA, and they managed to find us a table. For the price it was brilliant. Gorgeous fresh fish done in interesting ways, lovely prawns, and barracuda aplenty (which I'd not had before but seems to be a good tasting meaty white fish). And very very reasonable prices....

Even if it is difficult to get a table in high season (especially first week of January) Barracuda is definitively a place to visit (especially when if the day before you have tried an "insipid" Thai restaurant. Good food, good service and not too high priced. Book in advance....
