Nice pub food is served in the Reef Bar, located in the main road. On weekends, expect live Premier League coverage. Meet fellow travellers while playing a game of pool. Service can be slow at times. All in all, a popular, laid-back hangout for the backpacker crowd.

I've been to this place a few times before with friends and really enjoyed it. It has a great feeling and vibe about the place. It kinda reminds you of being in a country pub back home on a Sunday afternoon. Having come back to the island and hearing it had a new menu, I had to stop by. Wow!... More

Good burgers, and great atmosphere if you love open concept bars with sports. We had the first Johnny the Works burger ever sold and served, did not disappoint. Well done!

Went here to seek really good western food which is sometimes hard to find around. I ordered a burger that had a pretty ok chicken steak and mayo but overall it was a disappointment with its dry bun and tasteless veggies. My boyfriend ordered a jacket potato with chili con carne and it was decent, i'd go with some of... More

Ate here twice throughout our stay in koh tao. Both were pleasant times with the sport being shown (even though we watched the same football match both times) and the Cosey feel reef has to it. My one objection is that on both occasions the waitresses did not even crack a smile and for me, this is very important. Apart... More

Great meal! My boyfriend and I went here twice for dinner while we were on Koh Tao. It is located just up the street from the ferry. It's a small restaurant with wood tables, soccer games on a projection screen, and fans. Very chill atmosphere. For dinner the first night, we shared Nachos with chili con carne, bbq chicken wings,... More

Excellent place to hang out and meet people! My favorite place to chill during our stay on the island. The staff is very friendly even though we were switching tables all the time. Good atmosphere, cool music and a free pool table. Also ate there plenty of times as we just did not want to leave the place!

The place is real nice, not too many tables and yet rather spacious. They have a pool table in mint conditions, which makes it a good place to hang out even if not dining. I had a burger, which was ok but nothing special. Fries were not that good, while you could notice that the onion rings were not frozen... More
