The flavours and ingredients used are exquisite. The seafood is excellent (my tuna bruschetta was so fresh and delicious) and the service was timely.

We ate with Barracuda twice--having them come cook in our villa once and in the restaurant once--and both experiences were unique and definitely worth repeating. I would recommend the blue crab curry, as well as the tuna bruschetta appetizer. We tried about 20 different things from the menu, so all I can say is most of the menu is very... More

I haven't eaten at every single place in Koh Tao so it's hard to say for sure, but Barracuda was a delicious experience and easily topped every other spot I tried. The oyster on the half shell was served with a thai style mignonette and a seasoned tamarind paste that had such an incredible depth of flavor. The crab curry... More

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.
