A wonderful dining experience.

My wife and I visited the Red Snapper on 4 occasions on our most recent visit to Samui. We have been going there for 11 years but feel the food has went to a new level. It is now by some distance the best restaurant on the island and arguably one of the best in Thailand. It is only a... read more

OK so I am being picky. I should not compare and contrast with another Chaweng premium restaurant. On a par is the library. I would say value is better. Down side is restaurant is open to the main road. Through the evening you get a series of intrusive loud promotions by passing vans with loud speakers advertising other establishments and... More

I went to Thailand in 2014 and really enjoyed this restaurant. We stayed in Koh Samui for ten days and ate here twice. Some of the plates served looked like an art work which was amazing but it was the freshness of the food and the great flavours that were fantastic. Along with icy cold drinks, and good service, it... More

I have eaten in Red Snapper a number of times. On the busy Main Street, a stylish restaurant. Not your typical 20 page long Thai menu! A good selection of starters and mains. Remember that in Thailand desserts are rarely ever taken. Excellent service. The food was very good. And we rated their toilets the best in Samui!! Will be... More

My husband and I really enjoyed going to watch a band playing at red snapper first before eating there another night. Both times service was second to none. The food was excellent and we really enjoyed the entertainment.

We came at the evening for tapas and wine. Had soups before (tomato and lobster) and they were just ok, nothing special. But tapas were not eatable. Made hours before, tasteless, cold, simply awful. It is embarrassing for a restaurant this range to serve this kind of food. Desert was good, music is nice, but overall experience was ruined by... More

Wow! We came to witness only the last set of the band 'acoustic 101' ... A breathtaking, emotional performance! Full stop. This place really is a gem, with very attentive service, good wine and an absolutely fantastic house band!!!

Chaweng isn't exactly upmarket so finding decent restaurants along the strip is limited. The Red Snapper is one of the few good ones. Stylish, clean and modern. Med type food. Good and reasonable wines. Food we ate was well presented and tasty. Was there for dinner-clientele well dressed. Friendly service. Live band. Decent choice for slightly older more refined customers.... More
