First time I stayed in Koh Tao I visited this place was mainly cos the IIHC was on and REEF Bar was the only place on the island showing it. Great opportunity to follow your favourite sport games when away from home. Best place to meet Western people and get proper Fish N Chips. Great pool table. Second time I... More

Go early to make sure you get the fast selling whole roasted chickens they have spinning on the rotisserie out front of the bar. They also have some tasty ribs and don't forget the backed Mac and Cheese. And if you like pool, they have a table that is usually busy all night long with group games so that everyone... More

We stayed at Central Hostel for a time. We have had dinner several times here at the Reef Bar. It is not the cheapest option in town, but they have great Western Food and the best burgers I had in 4 months of traveling. We had the burger with bacon en cheese. Perfect. Served with french fries and a little... More

We arrived at reefs with mild hangovers, some worse than others. We politeley removed our shoes and proceeded to a table. Here we were impressed by the english menu and swiftly ordered. I have a phobia of mushrooms and therefore politeley asked if they could be exchanged for some more bacon as it is the same price on the menu,... More

We came here to watch a football match which started at 8.30pm. We decided we'd eat there so that we got a good table in front of the big screen. On walking in, we realised it wasn't the place for us at all. I eat mostly vegetarian food, and there was nothing inspiring or different on the menu for me... More
