Hi we visited this restaurant on the beach several times during our stay. Amazing food and great "Happy Hour" cocktails for BAHT 100 each (less than £2). Service was excellent and we felt like a local at the end of our holiday

We stumbled across this restaurant on a scooter exploration trip of Koh Samui. We stopped in for a quick drink and snack and were super impressed with the service we received. The staff were very friendly and attentive, putting fresh flowers on our table when we sat down and bought us refreshing cold towels as it was a very hot... More

We are staying at the Sunset Beach Resort, and after an unsuccessful attempt at having a meal in their restaurant, we decided to venture out. This is a true gem. The service is genuine and smiley. You can see its a family business and they love working here, it makes such a difference! It was nice to see that all... More

My wife and I were staying at the Conrad and heard terrific things about the Island View Restaurant, so I gave them a call and set up a reservation for two. They were able to arrange round trip transportation for roughly 800 baht. We ended up going for a massage at 5pm and I think we were the last customers... More

A stunning sunset spot, offering a large menu of Thai and Western foods, extensive cocktail menu and happy hour between 5:00pm-6.30pm. We enjoyed cocktails such as 'Pina Colada' and 'The island View Happiness' which are only THB100 during happy hour or THB180 at regular prices. They offer free peanuts to enjoy with the cocktails, nice CD music playing in the... More

Even without the beautiful setting on the beach and the five island view at sunset, this would have ranked as one of the best Thai meals we've had. The view was just a super-sized icing on the very tasty cake! This was our second visit and we had a big group. The staff handled us perfectly. One suggestion for the... More

Ambiance was great but wasn't impressed by the food. Located right on the beach and it was nice to have a table cloth on a table to make it more formal. But food wasn't anything to write home about I thought. Certainly wasn't offensive in any way but have had better Thai food elsewhere and don't think this is worth... More
