“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

Saw the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to check it out tonight. Made a reservation and were lucky to get a table for two (the place is pretty small so make sure to book a table). The place is very nice, cool decor. The food is incredible!! The owner is a very friendly German guy, makes you feel very welcome. I would absolutely recommend Barracuda to anyone who comes to Koh Samui. Very reasonable prices also. Not as cheap as the beachside Thai places, but you can't compare. Definitely cheaper than most high-end resort restaurants on the island, and probably much better.

“Fabulous Dinner at Barracuda on Samui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2012

We booked dinner for last Saturday night to celebrate a birthday.... what a find! Really attentive service, without being obtrusive. Fabulous food, which was well cooked and presented. An amazing chocolate lava pudding with raspberry sorbet (which we shared). Good wine, coffee and chilled background music. Recommend booking ahead of time to avoid disappointment. We will definitely be regular visitors as we are currently living on Samui.

“A change from Thai Food?!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2012 via mobile

A fabulous change from Thai food we'd been enjoying over the past week.The warm and friendly manner from the owner was a lovely introduction,the menu interesting and innovative, the music cruisey, the staff perfectly attentive, and the food was really delicious.
Complimentary toasted French bread with a tasty garlicky tomato herb salsa style dip was a lovely way to start.
Interesting fusion flavours with the lobster tortellini, the duck and fish superb, and the white chocolate and carrot friand was served with dark chocolate icecream, a must to order in our opinions!!
Even 'George Clooney' Nespresso to finish the evening with an expresso.
We thoroughly recommend!

“Make a reservation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

After reading all the reviews and noticing that Barracuda was just around the corner from our villa, we stopped in for dinner to find that there were no tables available for the next 3 nights. We took the next available table and thank goodness! Barracuda really lives up to the reviews, and we were so happy with our first experience that we made another reservation for our final night. The menu is varied and interesting; a modern and delicious take on fishes and meats with a fresh use of local ingredients and Thai flavors. The lobster ravioli appetizer is spectacular, the lamb entree perfectly done and accompanied by the most delicious mashed potatoes ever. The teenagers were mad for the chocolate lava cake desserts, and the mango soup with lychee granita was fantastic.
The German owner is friendly and interesting, and has trained his staff very well - appetizers come before the meal and everyone's food is delivered together, unlike many Thai restaurants that seem to deliver food as it's made, leaving one person waiting while the rest have finished eating. The atmosphere is great, simple decor and nice music. Too bad it's on a noisy side street - if Barracuda was on the beach and had more tables, it would be over-the-top perfect.

“Makes you feel very welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

Recently we have been to Barracuda restaurant after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor. Last years we have been on Koh Samui for several times and visited lots of the top ranked restaurants.
The great thing about Restaurant Barracuda is that because of the "professional service with a smile" you feel very welcome together with excellent food.
For us it is a "make you feel good restaurant"
