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

We've had diner with friends around new years and had to come back for a second (and a third) time! The highlights are the "Seafood Lover" and "Pla Pad Cha"! Nicely located on a quite beach strip with a very nice atmosphere. Definitely coming back on my next Koh Tao visit.

a touch of class white atmosphere, chilled out, very good fresh local food (AND a perfect carbonara) - great little bar for pre and post dinner drinks with a very open and funny staff! the bar might be more fun than the resto . good cocktails. we were there almost every night

This place has a fantastic location on the beach and a cool vibe (all white interiors, hence the name) but the food was totally average and the service was poor. I had 7 cloves of garlic in my pasta dish (I was a delight to talk to for the rest of the evening). The waiters just ambled around aimlessly and... More
