Best Place we ate from all the islands in Thailand!!

Unreal place, once we found this place we never went anywhere else. There was 10 of us travelling and we were travelling around for a month, this was the only place to bring all our food out at once. Service was top notch and the food was GORGEOUS! Garlic bread with cheese is to die for! You must... read more

We ordered "homemade" tagliatellie with vegetables and pesto pesto sauce which came with all the noodle stuck together, tasteless sauce overflowing with olive oil and one piece of eggplant. We also ordered salmon fillet with vegetables, the salmon was full of bones and the veggies I received were hard cauliflower and carrots - you don't have to a chef to... More

I enjoyed Porto Bello so much the first night I went with my boyfriend, we came back the next night too! The cheese board is delish! The mango chutney went so well with the gorgonzola and sliced fuji apples (then again, a cheese board doesn't really exude much culinary skill). We got the Cannelloni - which didn't actually have cannelloni...... More

Everything is to like about this place. It's the best pizza we found on Koh Tao, the pastas are fresh, the staff are smiley and it's right in the middle of Sairee - the Calzones were all excellent and they've a limited but solid selection of wines - all in all, a taste of home

We went here only once, on the last eve of our stay in Koh Tao...and wished we had found this place earlier. We had a ravioli, which was yum. But the highlight was the garlic bread - the best that we have ever had. It was somewhere between a garlic naan and a focaccia - make sure that you have... More

We have eaten here three times and each. Time has been superb. The food is authentic,, the service first rate and the restaurant is scrupulously clean. Totally recommended.

Don't eat here or you'll run the risk of food poisoning! I had the salmon fillet and it was dry and tasteless. To add to this i was instantly sick and only got worse. Food is over priced for what you can het on the island! Don't bother! There are better places around along the beach

My daughter has been travelling and I wanted a nice surprise for her birthday and emailed Paul the owner if he could ensure she had a good evening with her friend while she was away from home. All I can say we struck lucky, they went out of their way to give her a fantastic night, hospitality at it's best... More

We ate here last year and the food was great and also the service. This year it has slipped a little one of the first guys that served us It seemed it was to hard for him and not interested. The Bruchetta was great but the the pasta dish was under cooked. The Creme brulee was not the best, it... More
