I would say hands down the best seafood place in Koh Tao. Have had a wonderful dinner here more than once and will be back again.

Nice atmosphere and staff, cosy restaurant. Tried the barracuda ceviche and a whole snapper, both plates superb, both in taste and presentation. Being Ko Tao so full of restaurants, Barracuda truly stands out. Keep up the good work.

Located in the centre of Sairee Beach, Barracuda is a laid back and stylish dining alternative. Specialising in a large selection of seafood and Thai style fusion dishes. Within our extensive menu you are bound to find something to suit all tastes.

After training as a Chef at, English's Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar in Brighton, straight from school in 1998, Ed moved to Koh Tao in February 2007, where he has since been working as a chef at various locations around the island.

Ed had developed his menus using feedback he has received from his customers since he opened, Barracuda, in July 2010. With his latest menus, Ed has started to introduce the "Thai Fusion" range of dishes to suit all tastes, these are proving to be extremely popular with the locals and tourists alike.
