Luckily, we managed to get a table for 2 just before pm. It seems most people book as it becomes busy and full quickly. Good food & service.

It has taken me a while to review this place as did not have the trip advisor app on my phone. I have just recently had a massive craving for one of his specialties that gets lost amongst the rest of the decadent menu. The proprietor does some of the best pork ribs outside of the United States of America.... More

Awesome food! Large selection of options from meat, seafood and a few vegetarian options. It's suggested that you book a table in advance, though couples kept coming in without reservations without any hassle. Food was great! Service was fast, which is a rarity on Koh Tao. Check it out if you have a chance!

Small restaurant but so popular you'll need to call and reserve a table in advance. Food is great! Lots of options we wish we could try all of them! Warning: Portions are big so don't over order (like we did..). They have a few different kinds of ciders too which we enjoyed very much. Service is ok, you know "island"... More

The so so part: this restaurant is incredibly busy, so it is not the kind where you sit for hours admiring the sunset (especially because it is on a busy town road). The service is good, maybe a bit hassled, although we were given a 90 minute slot for our table and upon approaching the end, they did not look... More

We had some delicious ravioli in a curry sauce as a starter and my boyfriend and I shared the big seafood platter which was truly amazing! Lots of fresh fish, shrimp and mussels. Seemed a bit pricey at first for being Thailand, but the platter was generous and more than worth it!
