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.

“Ooooooooooo Baracuda!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

A fantastic little restaurant in Koh Tao. Between my girlfriend and I we have been to Thailand 6 times and we both agree that this is the best food and menu we have seen. There is a lot of seafood on the menu however there is a lot more on offer for the non-seafood eaters. Baracuda includes the fancier aspects of a dish that are not common in Thailand. We went in for a few starters each, including the chicken and ginger ravioli, the tuna and ginger sashimi, tuna bruschetta and the duck liver pâté with caramelised onions, all of which were fantastic! We thouroughly enjoyed our meal and would recommend it to any potential diners

“Best restaurant on the island”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We happened to come across barracuda in ko Tao and thought we'd try it out, it was so busy people were even sitting at the bar waiting for a table which we haven't seen in any part of Thailand so it was a good sign.
The food was brilliant best meal we had in ko Tao for something that wasn't traditional Thai food. At a first glance we thought it was a little pricey as we were on a travelling budget but when you convert it back to pounds value for money the quality of food was brilliant. If your planning a trip to Ko Tao definetly make time for this place!

“Awesome food, brilliant prices”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Superb menu especially for seafood lovers. I am not but there was a great selection for meat and veggie eaters too. It was recommended by one of the dive teachers and we were delighted to try it out and gutted to find it closed the next day when we went back for more!

“Best meal we had on Koh Tao”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

There are plenty of great places to eat on Koh Tao but this was our favourite.
The seafood platter for two was excellent.. you should come with an appetite so you can really enjoy it!
Cocktails are quite creative and good quality. We had one that was heavily ginger and lemongrass based and it was very tasty.

Service was smooth. All in all a good experience.
