hard to understand why to buy frozen fish when you are located on an island, doesn't has to be an endangered species, plenty fishes around

I would just like to confirm that the entire menu is fresh fish apart from the tuna, which needs to be flash frozen before it being consumed for safety reasons to kill certain enzymes so that we can safely serve it raw. This is because we use grade A tuna sashimi for all our tuna dishes. If you would like... More

Well, it's a matter of tastes, I know, but the barracuda fish taste as soap!! I mean, the one I had in this restaurant tasted of soap! Me and my girlfriend were accommodated in a table with a rivulet on the side floor and I think it was an open sewer because smelled like that. Then we moved in an... More

Hi there, and thanks for your review. I don't normally reply to reviews but as this one could be so damaging I would just like to make a few points. As for the first comment, about the barracuda tasting like soap. Hmmm is this just an angry comment because you made such a scene in the restaurant because you couldn't... More

Again we were recommended this place and again we were not disappointed. We had the sea food platter for two, you need to be very hungry or have a healthy appetite, preferably both to finish this dish, the green muscles are something else!

Mmmmm, so good! We ordered the seafood platter and couldn't finish it. There was so much food! In my opinion, the passionfruit mojitos are the best on the island. If you like seafood, definitely try this place!

As always when holidaying in Koh Tao the first restaurant to visit is Barracuda and it never ceases to amaze. The food was perfect, served on time and with an extremely cold beer. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough for it's quality, freshness and extremely tasty food.

A bit pricy but well worth it for a night of indulging in great fish and seafood, the raspberry mojitos are super!

I had dinner after a day of diving and felt the urge to eat a good meal of seafood. :) The whole menu looks delicious, all the dishes I saw that were brought out looked appetizing and wonderfully presented, I had a really difficult time choosing! Finally decided having the "Thai fusion yam tuna" as an appetizer- ('diced tuna sashimi... 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.
