Samsong Shots are fake alcohol! As we asked the stuff about the shots, they went very rude and unfriendly. So be aware drinking shots there - only beer is okay. And something positive: the view!

I'm a regular at the Emerald. It's an easy going place with friendly and helpful staff and a fantastic view of Bophut bay and Koh Phangan island across the way. They offer sports on TV inside the pub, but I always sit outside and soak up the fresh breeze. Sometimes I eat the Fish 'n' Chips which tastes great and... More

This was our third visit in 9 years - it hasn't changed a bit which was lovely. Our first visit was as backpackers in 2005 and the second 3 years ago. We went to this bar to have some drinks and watch the football. We did not eat here. We had an amazing time. The staff are friendly and service... More

We came here two or three times during our stay. Its just an Irish Bar with a view but you get what is expected. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the Irish cider was very good and the food was good honest bar food. Gammon chips egg and beans was superb. Cottage Pie good if a little too much... More

Stopped off here for a few beers while waiting to meet friends. Just love the atmosphere and service this place dishes out. We sat out on the street side on a very busy Friday night and had a great crack with so many people passing by and popping in and out. Fantastic service which was always with a smile.

At only a few english pounds, I think it is 250 thai baht, the breakfast they provide is not only the best I have had in Samui, it is the best I have had anywhere. Served with a proper full mug of tea, excellent sausages, hash browns, baked beans, bacon and eggs done the way I like. Good sized servings.... More

Ate here twice during our recent visit to Koh Samui and was never disappointed! The first time I had the chilli con carne with chips (rice is also an option) and it was fantastic! Next time I had two starters - nachos and onion rings. Both were hot and very tasty. The onion rings were home made which made a... More

My husband and I went here for St. Patrick's day, and were not particularly impressed. The waitstaff did not know the menu, my meal did not come out correctly, and the coleslaw was more like mayonnaise soup. The bartender could not make a "Black and Tan," even after my husband explained what it was he wanted. Overall, highly disappointing for... More

We have started eating here A LOT! There is only so much Thai food you can eat, right? The pints are as good as you will get in Samui, there are lots of channels for the football and other sport, you can sit with a sea view and the menu is fantastic. I highly recommend ANY of the sandwiches -... More
