Barracuda has always been one of the island's best restaurants and now with another Barracuda in a sunset location even better!

First, the food menu offers dishes for everyone's taste - from tapas, to meat dishes, loads of fish and seafood options, as well as vegetarian choices and now also Thai food, some of it with a non-ordinary pep-up. Fantastic! If you are not sure which direction you'd like to go, there are some fusion dishes available as well. We tried most things on the menu and everything was absolutely delicious and freshly prepared. Check out their happy hour cocktails and tapas menu too. A huge wine selection is available as well.

Second, the location: what a beautifully designed restaurant with romantic ambience from where you can see the sun setting. The restaurant feels tucked away in the middle of Ban's Diving Resort, beautiful from ground floor to the open air dining area upstairs. There are different seating areas, whether you prefer to sit on Thai cushion style tables or sofas under a roof or dinner table under the stars. The whole restaurant is beautifully decorated with loads of greenery. Very comfortable and just a very nice atmosphere.

Third, the staff: you feel that all the staff have been trained very well and they are doing their best to satisfy their customers. They are efficient and speak great English, which is not always guaranteed when eating out on the island.

To sum it up: Barracuda at Darawan is definitely the place to visit when you are on Koh Tao, one of the best restaurants hands down. Congratulations to Ed and his incredible team for this new awesome venue and the constant great quality of their food. Well done! You know we will be back ;-)

My boyfriend and I always enjoy a nice date night on Koh Tao, and every time we always end up at barracuda. The view is amazing for sunset drinks, and the food is always spectacular. Highly recommended for anyone who fancies an amazing meal on Koh Tao.

Took my girlfriend here for dinner and was very happy with the evening. We sat outside upstairs, the view of the ocean with the palm trees was spectacular and definitely very romantic. I had the tenderloin steak medium rare and it was cooked to perfection, my girlfriend had the barracuda fillet and loved it. The staff were attentive, friendly, all spoke great English and were quick. Will definitely be returning soon.

Barracuda at Darawan on koh tao is well worth a visit. Get there before sunset for a beautifully presents frame for some of the best sky you'll see. The food is top notch. The baked barracuda wrapped in Parma ham stuffed with feta cheese and tomatoes is amazing. Michelin star quality food at a super reasonable price. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a fantastic meal under the stars.

I have eaten at Barracuda countless times over the years. Every time I visit Koh Tao its the first place I go to eat. The food is always reliable, I have never had a bad meal there. I often go with vegetarian friends or with people who don't eat fish and their food also looks equally impressive and delicious. Lovely and attentive staff. Not to mention the view this rooftop restaurant now has! Definitely a place to go for sunset drinks/ dinner and to enjoy one of their delicious cocktails! Barracuda is an extremely professional establishment and can cater for any occasion or group size. I have travelled around the world and this restaurant is definitely up there as one of my favourites, and by far the best in Thailand!! (forgot to mention I am gluten free and the menu can easily accommodate for dietary requirements)
