Great food by the ocean

The venue is quite nice, especially the tables by the water. The prices are not too bad considering the location. Food and service were both great. We had the Thai dishes, which were well cooked.

We were walking up and down the north end of Chaweng beach looking for places to eat when a lovely front of house man engaged us about his restaurant. we had tried many others along the beach front, some crazily busy with music thumping out and fire shows to more relaxed quieter cafe settings... on first appearances this place looked...

Had a great night here with our party of 9. Extensive menu with something to offer all tastes. Was over drinking cocktails by now so was happy to have a few glasses of wine which were very reasonably priced. This is rare in Samui - wine is normally very $$$. Service was friendly and prompt and the meals were great.... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was great - we had a large group and shared red curry, green curry, chicken satay sticks, pad Thai, massaman curry, fish & vegetables and it was all great. The staff were really good and were very good with understanding a family member's food allergy and explaining which dishes were ok. The... More

This was one of our favourite places to eat while we were in Chaweng. It has a good wine list, the service was amazing and the tables were set right on the beach. It was a lovely setting (although beach sellers do still come along in the dark of night but if you ignore them they soon wander off). My... More

Had the Thai food and the dishes were rather tasteless. The fish seemed to be of the frozen kind. The massaman curry we had was different and the other two dishes Were not memorable. Nice setting. However we were one of two couples in the restaurant. Maybe it's western dishes taste better ?
