It looks like a little french place in the middle of nowhere. It tastes so good, smells french meals. the cooker and the chief are so nice. it's so nice to find such good and refined desserts - you will never find such anywhere on Koh Samui.

Had enjoyable meal with 2 tasty amuse bouche, a decent bottle of wine and well presented starter and main. The only downside was the crust on the creme brulee was almost nonexistent, but the taste and texture of the cream was very good. Restaurant offers a range of set menus as well as an a la carte menu.

We have tested this french restaurant in Lamai beach, The menu was varied and very creativ. All we have eaten was wonderful because the owner is realy a french cook; An experience to do during your stay in samui.

Interesting restaurant, this. If you look at the reviews on TP, half of them praise it to the skies, the other half aren't at all impressed. And after my visit, I'm pretty sure I know why. This is , without doubt, a talented chef. However, his team aren't nearly as good. And while the chef is out front of the... More

We looked forward to a nice french evening but we're very disappointed. With high end prices (compared to local standards) we expect much more. Friendly staff helped giving 2 points.

Passed by on foot and was attracted by the advertised menu, so booked a table for the next night. Very glad I did too. Some staff under training, so a little slow, however, the food was outstanding. Chose from set menu and at only 700 baht thought this was excellent. My best meal in Lamai..!!!

We weren't disappointed, the service, decor,presentation and food were all excellent. My wife had the duck whilst I had the chicken. We were suprised by receiving a complimentary bowl of mushroom soup... More

We had dinner here with my Dive group last month and all I can say is that, the employees were very nice especially the Chef, who had welcomed us personally. The ambience was very nice too and lastly the food ...... hmmmmm.... as you say in French, C'est tres tres excellent!
