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

I was in koh Tao for 3 nights and I went to Whitening 2 times. It says a lot! It is the best place, in my opinion, for a romantic dinner (ask for a front side table) or a group dinner (ask for the long sofa). The dishes are simply amazing and also the cocktails. They have a large menu... More

So this was our Thai meal splurge and for our family of 4 it came to around 1406 bht including drinks and desserts. The food was incredible, I went for one of the recommended fish dishes and it came with amazing herbs and vegetables I'd never encountered before. Sublime. Gorgeous setting on the beach, like rustic fine dining.

We came here for a romantic dinner at Koh Tao and to watch the sunset. The restaurant itself is very funky as it's all white and you have the option to sit at the standard table and chairs or lounge on one of the bean bags with bar table. We choose the later as it had a front row sit... More
