Nice and trendy place with seaview. Delicious fish. Snapper with garlic.... Never had a fish like that! White tables are standing on the beach. Friendly personel!

This place is the perfect place to have a decent dinner with friends on Koh Tao. my personal favourite dish is the cashew nuts sweet and sour chicken, since their version is the crispiest I've ever had :) sometimes the service is a bit time consuming - but is absolutely worth it. plus, quality needs its time and nobody should...

First of all, I heard so much about this place and yet I agreed. The foods here are amazing, fresh and tasty. The price is a little higher than many restaurants on Koh Tao but it is well worth it.

We visited several other higher ranked restaurants on the island, but Whitening is our top pick. It delivered a combination of tasty food, good wine (hard to find in Thailand), pretty good service considering the place was full and "pumping", dipping our feet into the soft white sand under the tables - all while enjoying watching boats coming and going...

The truth is, there's better, cheaper food on Koh Tao (try Lung Pae), but Whitening seems like a safe (and somewhat expensive) touristy option. The restaurant looks clean, it's right along the beach and the food was acceptable.

Right on the beach so you have a nice view of the sunset. The Thai food is very good, and very affordable prices. You can choose to either be seated in regular chairs on the beach, or go for a more relaxed setting with bean bags and a low table. The staff was very friendly. Highly recommended.

We were there to celebrate a birthday. Apart from serving up delicious food and reasonable cocktails, they were very cooperative in helping to store the birthday cake which was delivered earlier and bringing it out with lit candles on cue, together with a birthday song playing over the speakers. It's also a beautiful place to watch the sunset at, particularly... More

Best location, service and food I had in ko tao. Spot on right on the Beach you have dinner in a special place and still the prices are good for what you get. Really recommended

Was extremely impressed with the food and cocktails (very reasonably priced too!), and with a table by on the beach it was just perfect. Service staff could use a little more training, but with all the other positives this is easily overlooked. Highly recommend this restaurant.
