Not impressive, save your money

I was not impressed by this restaurant. We could have had the same food for a fraction of the price. The view is not that great, its next to the pier which is a transportation hub (so this is like eating dinner next to a bus station). I asked what was in my appetizer and the waiter couldn't tell... read more

Lovely location, food good, steaks delicious, more expensive than other places but one visit is a must. I enjoyed the table sat in the sand with the view of the beach and pier. Recommended

Table in the sand directly on the beach with white tablecloth - looks marvellous! Food can be very spicy to European taste.

Don't get me wrong, the food was really good and overall the setting and service was lovely but something was lacking about the atmosphere. We ha chosen it for a birthday dinner and probably expected more. Probably best for a larger group. DO order some cocktails, the were really yummy.

We got the perfect spot in the restaurant - therefore 5 stars. Everything was great - the view, atmosphere, food, drinks, people and service. Only downside would be if we didn't get a first row spot and those comfi chairs.

I keep coming back to Koh Tao and to Whitening and I have had many great candle light dinners with my wife there and also bigger groups of friends there. We love the Giant tiger prawns on garlic and the view of the sea while dining. We have had a perfect evening every time we reserved a table in Whitening.... More
