O to the M to the G- OMG!!!! That is all I can say about this restaurant. Me and two friends were in Koh Tao for 5 nights and discovered this absolute gem of a place on our second last night. We ate there on our last night again. The food AND mojitos (raspberry & passionfruit) were just amazing. I... More

Excellent food and service in a cosy little space on busy pedestrian shopping street. We were lucky to get a walk in table in high season booking would be a good idea.

We had heard good things about this establishment but were disappointed. The prices are higher than other places in the area, the portions were smaller and quality average.

We had a very nice meal, we had the seafood platter for two. All of the components were cooked well and very tasty. Service was good and it's a nice little joint.

Small restaurant in the heart of the village, opening up onto the street you can watch the world go by. Great fresh food, we shared a meat platter for two the first night which was delicious. Another night I had Tuna Carpaccio which was fabulous,my partner had Chicken Tikka which he loved. Definitely the best place to eat.

The food is wonderful, one of the best that I ate in 20 days in Thailand. It is not too expensive. You need to reserve. I didnt do it and I wait for more than 2 hours.

Food was just awesome, creative, international and Thai. Friendly and professional staff: The only thing that we didn't enjoy too much was the location of the bar - in front of a fish feet aquarium and next to two table dance bars. especially when the koh Tao pub crawlers group of about 100 people passed. If they find a better... More
