Barracuda
Barracuda in Koh Samui

Located in Maenam, this small eatery offers an intimate candlelit vibe with small details that reflect the art of traditional Thai fishing. The food here is Mediterranean fused with subtle Asian touches at prices that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. And Chef Ferdinand Dienst is a warm and attentive host, greeting guests and guiding them through his small menu that changes every three months. A chalkboard on the wall lists the day’s specials, depending on what is available on the day. Cleverly inventive, the dishes are beautifully plated with the top recommendations being homemade tortellini of lobster and salmon in a delicate tom yam velouté and the jasmine-tea-crusted tuna steak bedded on roasted pineapple and Thai asparagus in tongue-tingling wasabi sauce. Nor should one leave without sampling the calamari with roasted watermelon and butter-lemon-sauce, or the perfectly seared duck breast on bok choy with a port of dried cherry sauce and minted-pea purée. The wine list offers a nice selection from the Old and New Worlds. Finish of a meal with the delightful chocolate mousse tempered with chilli and mango. Couples and a group of friends will enjoy this experience.
