Really great place to eat and visit. We stayed in centra villas next door and went there a lot. Family were friendly and had amazing seafood dishes as it was caught daily from the sea. Going back to Thailand probably for cool bar

After reading reviews about the cool bar we knew we had to visit whilst we were in Koh Samui. It's a short walk (few minutes) from Centara Villas, where we stayed. The food is absolutely delicious and the cocktails are fab! Trust me, I know my cocktails so I know what I talk about. Pink lady cocktail was my favourite,... More

We stayed at a resort nearby, so we came here 3 times to have dinner and drinks. Its very good thai cuisine and the cocktails were also very delicious. We even used the airport transfer from them. We will come back!

Very friendly staff and great food too! One tip, don't drink too many "Blue ones" although they go down very nicely, they will hit you like a train the next morning!

Liked the view of the sea, the food was lovely but not enough people there to give it the atmosphere that was advertised

Just a wonderful little bar run by an amazing family, the drinks and the food cheap as chips and was a lovely way to end the day watching the sun set with a cocktail in your hand,

After an unimpressive meal at Centara villas hotel, I jumped onto tripadvisor and saw great reviews for this place. I must say that on first sight, we couldn't understand what all the fuss was about and almost decided to give it a miss but I am SO glad that we didn't. The cocktails were all fantastic as was the food...... More
