“TOURIST TRAP”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. it's a total rip-off. it felt like we were eating at a bad restaurant in los angeles. terrible food. way over-priced. kids meals are $12 for bad fries and bad chicken nuggets. save your money and eat somewhere else.

nice view though...

first really bad restaurant experience we have had on our travels through asia.

“Yummy cocktails and a great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Myself and 5 friends ate at Seaside recently for lunch. The weather was gorgeous so the view was great. We ordered cocktails which were all yummy and then we had lunch. Everything from the burgers,fajitas and the prawn salad were lovely. The staff were all really friendly and when the rain came over the water towards us, they were quick to act, pulling down the blinds so we could continue our meal. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant and would go there again for sure.

“awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The food portions were very good value for money. If wed known earlier we would have eaten here most nights. We had two starters, a tuna salad as a side, along with the pork ribs main and a a double cheese burger main. We both had two dinks and the whole meal came to less than £42 (2000 thai baht aprox)

“Fantastic food, atmosphere, location. A must on Koh Samui.”

Gorgeous food, my boyfriend and I had three courses and 2 rounds of drinks and it came to around £20 each. Amazing steak. Really is a must visit.

“Okay but expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

We went to the Seaside Steakhouse one night when we wanted a break from Thai food and a good bottle of wine. The setting is very nice with a table overlooking the beach and Bhoput bay, whilst the interior decor is smart and modern. Despite not going for Thai we ordered a chicken satay starter which was delicious. However, the mains that we ordered (ribeye steak and tuna steak) were average and over cooked. My ribeye was very thin by western standards and whilst I ordered it medium rare it came out cooked through. My girlfriend's tuna steak was also cooked right through and so was dry. We would have sent the food back but were being picked up by our hotel and so didn't have time for it to be recooked. We ordered the Shiraz Malbec red wine and this was good (bearing in mind that wine in Thailand is very expensive for what you get). Unfortunately, the restaurant doesn't take credit card, which meant that I had to go and withdraw cash from the local cash machine which cost me 150 BHT plus a fee from my bank. This meant that an expensive meal by Thai standards was even more costly. Overall I would say that the Thai food here might be very good, but the western dishes that we sampled were not.
