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 ;-)
