Recommended by some other guests at our hotel, we ventured out to find this gem.
The staff are super friendly and offer great service. We had the chicken, whole fish and some oysters. Everything was super fresh and tasty. Work the visit!

After all the reviews,expected more. My husband and I had the seafood platter. The barracuda must have been cooked that afternoon as it was ice cold. The fish cakes were soggy. I must say it was clean and had a lovely ambiance.

Set in a little lane between the main road and the beach is a hidden gem known as Barracuda. Dave, our host in Ko Samui recommended we visit during our stay in Ko Tao and we're delighted he did. Luckily we followed his advice and booked as the restaurant was full and non-bookers were turned away. We found the drinks to be moderately priced and the house white wine was very nice. We ordered the infamous Seafood Platter for two and were thrilled with what we got. It's a well-priced, warm, friendly restaurant with great food! We will definitely return.

Bad service, average food, no view, no atmosphere. Better go to a restaurant at the beach. Place wants to be ‘fancy’ but isn’t

Visited this restaurant after reading so many positive reviews and we weren’t disappointed. I’m not usually a fan of fish but thought I’d give it a try. The starters we had (prawns and fish cakes) were lovely but it was the mains that were really amazing. I had the barracuda fillet with tomato cream sauce and my boyfriend had the yellow curry in a banana leaf and both were absolutely delicious. May be a little more expensive than some other restaurants but well worth it. I only wish we’d had time to go again!
