Whammy, great cocktails!

The kafir lime infused vodka cleanser... wow. Lychee and Strawberry Daiquiris.. wow... We enjoyed the cocktails so much I can't exactly recall how good dinner was, pretty sure it was amazing! Great spot to watch the sunset, although the beach could do with a bit of cleaning. Highly recommended!

Great cocktails. Especially the strawberry daiquiri. Nice location on the beach where you can relax and watch the boats go by and great sunset spot. One of the few spots on the the island that plays decent music. Tried a few items off the food menu and it was all pretty good. We will be back for a cocktail or... More

Fantastic location a short stroll along the beach from Sensi . The reception was perfect , they went to a lot of trouble matching the colours scheme... More

Had dinner here a couple of times while at Koh Tao - the place is really nice and not particularly expensive. Menu is a mixed bag of Thai and European food - everything we tried was nice. Super athmosphere and placed literally on the beach. Good cocktail card as well and very laid back place.... Would definitely go back.

Excellent food and drinks in a cool setting on the harbour beach. Have a pre-dinner drink as the sun goes down over the ocean (the kafir lime gin concoction is awesome).

Nice atmosphere and a good spot for an afternoon drink on a busy beach. Drinks were nice, service was ok, music was good too.

Great food and location for a affordable price! The banana split is a must try for dessert, however avoid the wines and have a nice cocktail instead!!

Located right on the beach this restaurant can boast fantastic views over the sunset, great tasting food, good service and an extensive menu (compared to many restaurants on Koh Tao). It is a little more expensive than most restaurants here but not much and you do get "extra" for your money. You can choose to sit on the floor and... More
