We stayed in Sairee Beach for seven nights and ate here four times the food is that good! The cocktails are also delicious ("Barracuda on the beach" was my favourite). The seafood platter is amazing, there's so much food it's a challenge to finish.

I was quite pleased with the quality of the food, as well as with the choice on the menu. Western people might have too high expectations, but for me the price - quality was acceptable.

My wife and I wanted a fresh seafood dinner on our honeymoon. The menu here looked really good so we made a reservation. We asked them about what fish was fresh. Out of the entire menu, our waiter told us it was all from frozen except for the Red Snapper, the Squid, and the Prawns. How is that even possible... More

Hi there, I am immediately responding to this review as it could not be more from the truth. 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....

On a recommendation, we came here and booked in advance. The restaurant was very busy. We ordered a surf and turf to share, which is a lot of food.

This is our go to for nights out with friends and special occasions. The food never disappoints. Book a table in advance for busy season so you don't miss out! I highly recommend both Barracuda locations if you are looking for quality food with great staff.

This place was so hyped up. We got married on Koh Tao and this was one of the highly recommended spots for our wedding dinner, but we went another route. Since we had heard so many great things about this restaurant, we decided we had to try it, and of course go for the fresh seafood. My husband had the... More
