One of the best meals I have had ANYWHERE, was the white snapper in lemon and spicy sauce. So good I had it two days running. On another occasion I Had king prawns and they were... read more

Last night we followed the recommendations of friends and went to Som restaurant in Bang Por. It doesn't look like the kind of restaurant that would serve this high quality food - very simple wooden tables and concrete floor not untypical of many of the restaurants in this area. We sat at a table close to the sea, with fisherman's... More

We went here based on TA reviews. We were greeted warmly by the smiling grandmother and a cute boy on her arm. It is a family place - a small area with the family's kids and babysitters, a TV to entertain those with nothing to do, and loads of smiles and pleasant atmosphere in a lowkey rstaurant by the beach....

We have been here several times and every time the food is amazing, the best squid I have tried in my life for exempel. But this is not the best thing the staff are, they are so kind and nice. They really give you a family felling! We will be back! :)

We spent hours on the beach and used the lounge chairs of Som Restaurant. We had lunch there too, of course, which was delicious! We had lots of Thai favorites and everything was great. My kids particularly enjoyed the fried pork. They also all had banana shakes which were great, if a bit pricey (they add a 10BHT charge for... More

What I love: #Personal service #Location #Food is great and fresh #Great value for money The menu includes some international dishes, but the we have only... More

We have been to this lovely beach front restaurant twice so far during our week in Koh Samui. On both occasions we have been made to feel very welcome. The food has been delicious and good value and the service excellent. It serves both Thai and European food and the European food is still very good (often not the case... More

Had many dinners and cocktails here and service and food are incredible. My favourite was BBQ fish followed by BBQ crab, followed by BBQ prawns.
