I was staying in Chawan and looking for a nicer upscale restaurant to change from the typical beach venues. The layout and staff were great, the life music was a good unexpected touch, but the food disappointed. I asked for a seared tuna on arrabiata pasta and got a well done fish with a faint pink colour in the centre.

Found Red Snapper on trip advisor co.uk and must say we loved it. Great staff and very attentive and accommodating. Excellent food and a lovely clean restaurant with excellent toilets. This is attached to a fab music bar which is cosy and friendly. Will definitely recommend and will revisit.

We ate at the Red Snapper this evening. The menu is clearly thoughtfully constructed and the cooking and service is excellent. However 1 My wife ordered Tiger Prawns but this had 'just sold out' - at 8.15 on a Wednesday at a restaurant that is open until midnight! 2.

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... 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.

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
