“Excellent food in Maenam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Barracuda was one of the best meals we had while staying in Chaweng. It was more expensive than a lot of other restaurants, but the food and service were excellent and it is conveniently located in the centre of Maenam. If you are staying in the area it is definitely worth a visit. The chocolate lava dessert was particularly good.

“Diamond in the Rough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Not a prime location but wonderful food and exceptional service.Many restaurants on the island rely on location and views and fail on the food front.We visited many on a recent visit and Barracuda stands out against all comers.Simple but well cooked and presented dishes delivered hot to the table by very efficient and polite staff.Little things like a stubby cooler for the beer---beer gets hot when it is near 40c and good bread when perusing the menu just happen---no fuss just all round professionalism---this is a seriously good restaurant.

“MUST TRY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

Best calamari I have had, possibly ever. Sea bass is excellent. Crispy skin and very tender meat. Actually all the dishes we had were great. Service is excellent and price is very reasonable. You must make a reservation ahead, we saw so many disappointed walk in customers last night. No matter if you come to Thailand for Thai food or whatever, you need to come try this place if you are in Koh Samui. Because you will only end up writing a review like me.

Keep up the great food and great service Ferdinand. We will definitely be back again!

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Mainly fish dishes served, with one each of duck, lamb and beef also offered. Mains absolutely delicious, sweets very nice. Excellent service. We booked before we went to Koh Samui to make sure they could fit us in, and we're glad we did!
