We have been to this island 3 times but this is by far our favourite restaurant. We visited twice this visit and the food was amazing. The staff are really friendly too. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Very nice seafood! We got the platter to share for two persons. Almost to much for us to finish, but way too good to not eat..! Definitely try this place. Make a reservation though, otherwise you'll have to wait :)

Visited three times during our stay & one failed visit on Christmas Day. The food & staff are amazing & cant be faulted, however something seriously goes wrong with they're booking system. Our first & third visit's were excellent & were seated without a reservation immediately. Second visit to their newer restaurant on Christmas Day night & was a nightmare... More

Would recommend to friends and visit again. Definately one of the best in Koh Tao. We went to about 10 restaurants during our 2 week stay. This was in the top 2.

Small long narrow single room where mainly fish is served from a mixed unspecific fusion - extra fun as the trans show is nextdoor. You may need to book. A bit more expensive than otherwise on Koh Tao but more than affordable. We had a seafood platter and got huge portions and could taste all around.

Very happy that my expectations were exceeded with the popular Barracuda restaurant. Service is rushed and hectic but that doesn't stop you from enjoying a fantastic meal. The prices were really good considering the ingredients. 280 bt for a quality barracuda, rice and veggie meal that was delicious (I believe its called Thai Spicy) Don't miss this place! (But definitely... More

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.
