Nicely decorated

Had to wait ages for my food and ended up being the last person in the place, apparently the chicken I ordered was a "slow cook" dish. It's nicely decorated and I can imagine it's a really good atmosphere when there's more people and the music is playing. Food was very nice when it came.

Gorgeous menu, great ambience and groovy design. The steaks are perfectly cooked and the mains are generous sizes. Romantic to bousterous this is a winner either way.

Food comes in slow - the ribs are not good, (low price off course still). Burgers are really good. Waiter did not come with my Campari juice until reminding him 3 times. Still very nice waiters. Atmosphere is really nice

We had to wait 25 minutes for the first plate, then we get burgers who wasn't bad but I can't say the same for the French fries..

We visited here based on fellow trip advisor reviews and we loved it. Service isn't great, took a while to get anything done and not always served with a smile but the food was absolutely lovely. It's worth going despite the not so great service. If you're not in a rush then that shouldn't be a problem. We would return... More

We enjoyed our time extremely much at Hippo Bar & Grill. We have to admit we spent many enjoyable hours here during our stay on Koh Tao. I have to admit I enjoyed the Thai food extremely much. Their steaks and burger were also very nice. All food were very nicely prepared and presented. We liked the atmosphere in the... More
