Very good food

Good food, location is just perfect, high price, staff are average. Better going for lunch than dinner.

i thought after a year I give it another try but the pizza is still only 'good' and not very good. but the price is very high. at other locations you get better pizzas for 240 baht. here you have zu pay 380 baht. the view is nice but you can only sit on the floor beside the low-height tables...

We ate here twice, trying everything from spring rolls, to wood oven pizza, to pasta. Everything we had was great! And this was the first place in thailand I saw a side salad on the menu, and for 50B it was delicious! I would reccomend this place for legit pizza with stringy cheese, delicious garlic bread, and their sauces for... More

Nice wooden deck to hang out on, but the food was the worst so far in Koh Tao. Had a cheeseburger, patty was totally raw except for the charred outer layer, compact bun weighed around half a kilo and tasted super stale. My wife had the most boring Tom Kha in Thailand since 2008, tasted like somebody had cut a... More

We enjoyed several meals here, relaxing on the water. The staff was always friendly, and the food was good, but the atmosphere and view were what kept us coming back. Prices and food were both comparable or better than those without a view of the bay.

If you have a long hollydays in Thailand and want to brake the Thai food routine, why not to eat a very nice pizza in a very nice beach restaurant? As a vegetarian I could try the vegetarian and margherita pizzas and I tell you the vegetarian was superb... Nice music, nice atmosphere, friendly staff... Try to get there maximun... More

Service was great, food was delicious and the prices were decent compared to some parts of the island. The view is worth it in itself!

We ate 2 times here in July 2013. First thai food and the second time Pizza. Both times the food was good and the view nice. BUT the service was rude and not at all hospitable. My partner was really sick and only asked for hot water during dinner and the manager (lady with glasses) denied it! Do not work... More

Right on the water and super relaxing. The food was good as was the value. The staff was great, friendly and attentive. Give it a shot if you're in Chalok.
