Barracuda’s concept is winningly simple: serve fresh, high quality product on a small menu that changes frequently, with service to match.
It’s rare to come across a restaurant that earns universal acclaim, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone with a bad word to say about chef Francois Porte’s Chez Francois.
Guests enter on a street close to the Fisherman’s Village through a large, ornate door into a cozy space with black and white checkered floors, and a large wooden centerpiece table.
At the back is a small bar.
The menu changes daily, depending on what Porte finds at the market.
Reservations are a must.
Stacked is on a mission to be one of Samui’s funkiest dining experiences. Front and center to that is our passion for putting out quality food & drink. Serving everything from gourmet seafood and fish, to chops and steaks, our specialty lies in the art of creating the perfect burger (we like to think of ourselves as ‘burger connoisseurs’!). Combine that with our extensive wine or cocktail list. Top it off with live music and the biggest sporting event of the evening. Stack it all together and there you have it – the recipe for enjoying Chaweng the Stacked way!
But Stacked is most famous for its burgers.
For those that feel up to it, the Stacked Burger Challenge consists of four burgers and eight strips of bacon in a black sesame seed bun served with double fries and double slaw.
It’s free to anyone who can finish the monster in 20 minutes, otherwise it costs 1,000 THB (around $28 US).
Two local expats, Executive Chef Martin Selby and Food and Beverage Aficionado Damian Ahern, decided Samui was lacking a down to earth eatery with a warm and welcoming ambiance, that serves high quality and innovative food without the usual pretense.
“Our philosophy is to not rely on stunning views, fancy table settings or elaborate décor. Do not expect silver service…instead you will find high-end food, served in a provincial and approachable way.” says Martin.
Menu offerings include chicken breast and liver pate, Spanish chorizo and potato minestrone, and Serrano ham with soft-boiled quails eggs, glazed cauliflower and wild rocket.
Fine food, tropical vibe and cocktails to dream about.
