So I really can't believe the menu here, everything looks delicious and at a great price. I got the baked bacon wrapped barracuda that was stuffed with cheese and tomatoes, and it was deluxe. It's the best meal I've had in my 3 weeks so far in Thailand!

We can't recommend enough this place ! We went there for dinner on the advice of our dive instructor and we ended up eating there every day for the rest of our stay. Food is divine, fish is so fresh and perfectly seasoned and cooked. Great service and friendly staff. Prices are not the most affordable on the island but... More

While it is a little more expensive than most places it is a must when eating in Koh Tau!! Everything was super fresh and tasty, my husband is a chef and we have eaten at some great places on our trek across south east Asia and this is one our favorites. The staff was very attentive and kind as well!... More

Went here for dinner on my last night as it had so good reviews and I have to say it was a good decision. Went for a recommendation from the waiter to get snapper ad I couldn't decide on the multitude of good options and what a good recommendation it was. The fish tasted fresh and was very flavoursome. It... More

This place was so great we ate here twice. The food is fresh and tasty at a reasonable price and good portions. Also the service was friendly and food came out quick. I loved the sesame seared tuna, tuna sashimi and the Chocolate tart the most. The only room for improvement is the wifi could be better - then again... More

Great food and service, in a really good environment. We had a wide variety of food from meat to fish all really prepared and in the case of the fish and prawns straight from the local ocean.

It's rather pricey compared to 'normal' Thai Food, but totally worth it. You get really good, fresh fish dishes in kind of fusion food style. Always Thai mixed with something fancy. For example Barracuda Filet wrapped into Bacon. Would totally recommend it to anyone who's into fish :)

The vegeterian falafel dish was reasonably priced relative to quality. The surf and turf, however, was not exactly worth over 600 Baht. Parboiled potatoes that probably only saw the oven = weren't exactly roasted. The shrimp weren't very tasty. The mushrooms tasted like fat. The steak itself wasn't medium, as requested, but medium rare. It was tasty, though, as well... 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.
