we sat at Starlight at around 6pm for taking photos of sunset. The staff is very helpful and recommended snacks for us. We tried garlic butter bread and two pasta. a bit pricy but its acceptable if you stay in Charm Churee Villa as the transportation in Koh Tao is very high, probably you have to take a taxi (300B)...

The setting is unbeatable with the most beautiful view across the sea to the neighboring islands, watching the boats go by. Food delicious with a great selection of Thai and Western food. The service was good.

We booked this restaurant online before our trip. We booked it for my husbands 40th birthday and asked if they could give us a table with a great view. We got the best table in the restaurant, the staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was great. It was a very memorable night for us. Thank you starlight!

Had breakfast here each morning. Beautiful setting and lovely food. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. You could sit and eat while looking straight out over the beautiful bay.

We loved eating at Starlight everyday for breakfast and dinner for the 4 days we stayed at the Bamboo huts. The choice of food, presentation and service are all very good. Most nights we were treated to a free lightning show happening far off in the distance over the Mainland, which made dining here even more special.

Its the night time restaurant for the Charm Churree Hotel. It's...OK. I have a bit of a high standard for Thai food, I'll admit it, but considering it was resort pricing I expected more. It just wasn't all that good. Take your money to The Gallery instead.

Good service, nice food and nice view. A beautiful spot in paradise, a real shame about all the plastic bags floating by, a real shame but worth a look.

Was the best place on Koh Tao, they have let this place go, so sad. Our 4th stay in the resort and our 10th time eating at this restaurant, they need to fix the decor and the food standard, specifically the breakfast!!!

Decent food, some dishes better than others (I really enjoyed the Mackerel ChooChee). As others have said, the view is unbeatable. Service was fine, not great but you're on an island so just chill out. We stayed in the Bamboo Huts and it was just so convenient — ordered their room service twice (it was late, we were sore, and...

The setting was amazing, you could either sit inside or outside overlooking the water... definitely go outside if you can. The food was the best we had on the island. Staff was friendly and attentive.
