I noticed this place on the first day, but didn't go here until a couple of days later. Wide selection of dishes. I went for the Thai Fusion, with barracuda with spinach, local prawns, pan fried potatoes and a really nice sauce. Really tasty! This is not the cheapest place, but definetly worth every penny. Fresh and good ingredients. They... More

Tonight I ate at Barracuda Restaurant & Bar in Koh Tao. There are two locations, one very close to the beach and on on the "Walking Street" that really hasn't taken off as of yet, mainly due to construction still creating it; this was the location where we ate.

We visited the restaurant and the fish is tasteless. Only when you take a fish as a thai dish then its nice as long as you like that combination. My fish was wrapped in kind of parma ham and was disgusting. Ate only garlic potatoes which in fact were re heated and also bad. Called garlic potatoes but they only... More

We ate here on our first day on Koh Tao and both barracuda dishes we tried were lovely. I would recommend pre booking as the restaurant was full in the evening and they had to turn customers away who had no bookings

Barracuda is definitely worth the visit if you are on Koh Tao. All the dishes we had including starters were delicious!
