The whitening was recommended to us by a friend. It was easy to get to and a has a good clean facility. The pasta had fantastic flavor but with that took time. We were exhausted from the day and the service took a little time. But overall this was a good restaurant.

Beautiful beach front setting, candle lit atmosphere, very good food and prompt service. Prices not too bad, it gets busy so make sure you book if you want a peak time slot or want the front row tables.

Came here three times with my partner as we just loved it! The lounge is a great space to relax with drinks while the restaurant certainly makes for a relaxing and romantic meal on the beach. I shared my special night with my partner ordering THE BEST COCKTAILS IN KOH TAO! They also have happy hour! Dinner was nice, the... More

Lovely location for a romantic meal for two or even with the family. Food was fabulous, service a little slow on this occasion as the restaurant was very busy but that didn't matter as we were in no rush. Strongly recommend dinner here.

Awesome, delicious seafood prepared on charcoals. Nice ambience during the day with feet in the sand and by evening with the fairy lights. Quality presentation of the dishes we ate.

We pretty much had the restaurant to ourselves during peak lunch hour which seemed like a bad sign. However, food turned out to be tasty. We wanted to dine with a view of the ocean, and that was what we got. We also got a ton of jack hammering noise due to the demolition of the pier right next to... More
