Just had diner at this nice and cosy restaurant which has a stunning view over sairee beach. Food was good and staff very polite and helpful. Worth the walk!

My girlfriend and I discovered Rimlae on our first night in Koh Tao but having already eaten, instead vowed to come back the next night. We weren't disappointed. We had the pick of the tables and sat on what was pretty much a balcony hanging out over the rocks and sand, with the waves lapping beneath. The place was decked... More

I ordered the calamari which was rotten and gave me symptoms similar to food poisoning. At the first bite I knew something was wrong as it tasted 'fishy' which calamari shouldn't. I complained to the staff and asked for the manager who never showed up. The service was appalling, very slow and although the staff were friendly they didn't know... More

Located at the far end of of Sairee beach, Rimlae restaurant (part of Koh Tao Cabana Resort) enjoys a beautiful location which makes for a romantic setting for dinner. The restaurant is setup in a rustic manner with wooden huts and a range of seating settings. We ate both Thai and western food and it was well prepared and cooked.... More

Great seafood restaurant. The barracuda was well cooked or if you fancy cooking your own BBQ'ed fish that's also on the menu. The restaurant is away from the main parties on the beach, so a lovely and quiet/romantic setting if that's what you are after!

This is by far the most beautiful - breathtaking even - restaurant we saw on Koh Tao. Canopied wooden huts, warm lights, excellent views of the water, romantic atmosphere... The food was great, albeit pricier than at other restaurants we visited. We were there rather late (9:30pm) and the restaurant was almost empty. We had the feeling they were impatiently... More

Well worth the walk along the beach. The prettiest most gorgeous restaurant on Sairee.Excellent Thai food made me very happy. Like eating in a softly lit luxury treehouse :)

We walked the length of the Sairee Beach on our first day in Koh Tao and found Rim Lae at the northern end. It is quite possibly the most beautiful restaurant I've ever seen- canopied wooden huts nestled in the rock under palms and fairy lights. It's absolutely stunning. Having looked at the menu we noticed it was pricier than... More

We were here four times during our stay at Koh Tao. This is how much we love this restaurant. The setting of this place is amazing, offering great views of the sea and beach. Enjoy the sun and sea breeze and food at the same time. Food was great, we especially loved the seafood barbecue and Pad Thai, and of... More
