“Good prices, steep steps!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Once you've gotten past the steep steps to the bar from the beach it was good. Nice food, cheap beers and they showed a film in the evening which made a nice change from what we had been doing.

Great service, staff are very quick to serve.

“Dreams and Queens”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Hard to miss Barracuda, as located very near dreams and queens, so makes an entertaining evening watching people come and go. Ate here twice and thought the food was fantastic and very reasonably priced for the portions and quality that is consistently delivered. Tuna sashimi was excellent (could be a tad more chilled) but still had it both times and the freshness of the main fish dishes could be tasted. Good selection of wines and service efficient. Probably could do with a make over to make the whole experience outstanding and a rethink on toilets as some male guests still have trouble hitting the right spot in the bowl, which didn't make it nice for the girls to use! Had to book on one of the evenings, although come 8.30/9pm you should be lucky to get a table.

“Great food in a very friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

Located in the lively Sairee beach village, Barracuda is a great fish restaurant, very small so make sure you reserve in advance. The decor is a bit below expectations, however it does not affect the whole dinner! We had tuna sashimi as a starter, tuna steak and barracuda for mains, all were excellent. The owner of the place as well as the waiters are super friendly, definitely a place to go to in Koh Tao! Great for all persons, couples, friends etc! And  very good value for money.

“Thanks for Awesome Meals”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Awesome place, with great seafood. Do make plans and scout out the day/night before and make reservations. Make an evening of it and the show next door.. My 2 meals were cooked absolutely to my liking. Tender and melting in my mouth. Ed and his staff did a wonderful job.
Thanks for fitting me in.

“Great food indeed”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

If you manage to get a seat, this is a great place to go to for dinner. Small place but great service and dishes. Tuna steak was excellent, a lot of barracuda on the menu if this is your thing. Strongly advisable to book in advance.
