Best restaurant location

Just came back from having dinner over there, you have the best view and nice restaurant , the food not so bad either, a bit pricey but you pay for the view and location. Nicely decorated inside, looks so romantic at night . They also charge 7% for VAT or service charge, not so sure. But all in... read more

Away from the Sairee beach party going crowd, this lovely restaurant does not disappoint whether large or small groups of one. I came here years ago and revisiting this place did not disappoint! Excellent service, great seating near the shore edge, yummy food and appealing presentation. Absolutely coming back and not to be missed if staying on Sairee beach!

Wanting to seclude ourselves a little from the noisy beach, my girlfriend and I found Rimlae to be the perfect match. We tried the BBQ barracuda and king prawns with a sweet peach sparkling wine that our amazing waiter Win agreed on. I have been living in Bangkok for 3 months and Win was the best waiter I've met here,... More

Located at the far end of Sairee Beach, so well away from the beachside rave music, fire spinning and the drunken teenagers associated with these activities. The food was excellent but the views and ambience were amazing. We dined a number of times during our visit and always sat on the Thai style cushion mats to eat and enjoy views... More

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!
