Some friends and I went for dinner this week for our last meal together on the island. I got the ham wrapped feta stuffed barracuda and it was cold. The fish was dry and the ham was tough. You could tell it was sitting there for awhile. Bummed since it was a treat meal for us and was recommended by... More

Fresh. Big portions. Great location to the nightlife. Go for the "All In" platter if you're feeling hungry. The quality and quantity are well worth the price. The sauces are mouth party material. And chocolate with fresh mango sticky rice.......game changer. Who knew?!?! Mind and palette thoroughly blown. 10/10 would food coma again.

We were in Koh Tao for 4 nights and the food here was so excellent and the staff so friendly we ate here twice. I had the vegetarian platter the first night and the spare ribs the second night. My fiancé had the tuna salad both nights. This was the best western style meal we've had in Thailand. Would highly... More

We had a lovely dinner at Barracuda. Great seafood menu and well priced wine list. There are two sites - we visited the tapas restaurant on the walking street. The main restaurant is slightly nearer the beach - slightly busier when we walked by - both offer the same main courses.

I ordered the vegetarian and vegan dish "falafel" (I'm neither vegetarian or vegan but fancied the sound of it!) It did not disappoint it was beautiful with a great spread served. Staff are great!

We saw this on trip advisor and I have to say it deserves to be higher on the list. We walked up and were asked if we had a reservation which we did not but they offered to give us a table for a hour which was perfect. We ordered off a set menu for 390 baht and it was... More

Barracuda is my go to place when I want a really nice evening out for dinner. You can tell how much thought and care has gone into not only the food but the decor as well. Most reviews talk about the seafood but Barracuda is my favourite place on the Island for steak and the sauce that comes with it... More

For appetizer, we ordered the salt & pepper calamari appetiser - this was quite bland and chewy. Our main entree, the beer battered deep fried barracuda was more batter than fish and the fish didn't taste fresh from the sea i.e. frozen /from the freezer. Disappointing.

Thank jeaniecyl

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.
