Hi Ian When we receive a great review from a tourists who visits us once or twice it is like gold to us.

I am so sad that this once iconic Australian bar has been degraded by the latest manager into a nondescript no-identity lacklustre affair with no Australian character at all apart from a Billabong Surf Club sign on the refrigerator and some scattered Australian flags. On my visit last night the staff ( all of whom are new and of unknown... More

Saw the gorgeous view from the street and saw ribs on the menu. Got a lovely seat overlooking the beach. Would have been perfect for just a beer, but we wanted some ribs as we saw them on the menu and was well priced. They had no ribs and not a lot else on the menu really. Had to rethink... More

Hi There I am really sorry you missed out on the ribs. Unfortunately our supplier on the island has been very short on stock. My conclusion is that supplies have exhausted due to the coming Chinese New Year festivities. I am glad to read that your chosen meal was up to expectations. Many thanks for your honest appraisal.

Great little Aussie bar, nice atmosphere for early evening cocktails Long Island ice tea is good, girlfriend had frozen margeretta a bit expensive but you deffiently taste the alcohol, seems a bit clinical and neat but the views are superb.

Hi Mike I was also a little confused by your post. Friday night is one of our best nights especially the musical entertainment we provide. The atmosphere on a Friday is always special and we have had many comments in the past citing this very day. Please try us again and perhaps you may change your mind. Kind Regards Graham More

Always enjoy my visit to the Billabong Surf Club. Great view and excellent food and drinks. I loved the singers that sang on the Tuesday Thursday and Friday evenings. Great atmosphere and friendly service from the staff and Manager. Always visit the Billabong when in Samui.
