Since I had the bruschettas at the Withening, I can't order those back in europe anymore... ever! They were TOO good. The beef tenderloin and massaman curry were also very delicious. It's more expensive than other locations, but they well deserve it for the awesome food you get.

They offer good service, imported beef and reasonable prices for food and cocktails and wine. Good attitude by the management and a breath of fresh air dining experience on Koh Tao.

Loved this restaurant. Nice beach front setting, quite close to where the ferries come in. Great service and food. My daughters had the fillet steaks and these looked great, clean plates which is always a good sign. The steaks were huge! I had the chicken massaman curry. Very very good and so cheap. It came with a small free chicken... More

We were really looking forward to dining here due to the good reviews but were really disappointed. For starters I had the fish cakes which I'm fairly certain we're made if surimi as they were chewy, hubby had the squid which was tough and rubbery. Next I had the seafood lovers plate which had overcooked, dry mackerel, tough rubbery squid... More

Good location , nice ambience and acceptable service levels . Tables looking over the water are best but tend to be reserved so get in early as tables at the back tend to be very hot . Food and drinks were a little over priced but all in all a good dining experience .

Whitening is probably one of the most romantic restaurants on Koh Tao. The food is a little on the expensive side but it is presented elegantly and it is prepared to appease the palate. Definitely worth going but you will find the staff trying to push you to eat rapidly so they can turn the table over. With a polite... More

Great and simple thai food is served in a beautiful restaurant on the beach (tables are on the sand). It's an amazing place for a romantic dinner or a big table with many friends. The restaurant's design is simple but yet beautiful and the food menu will please everyone as the list of dishes is very long. The fish a... More

Just great food with your feet in the sand. Lovely setting and great service. Different from other restaurants with a nice mix of thai and western food. Would go back on my next visits
