“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

A must if visiting Koh Samui .... The duck curry and lamb massaman curry is so tasty. I had the scallops wrapped in Parma ham which was so tasty. The mango sticky rice is a must.... Just be careful of Mosquitos ... They did provide us with bug spray (just ask) try arrive for happy hour 5-6.30 pm all cocktails are buy one get one free ....

“delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

romantic and delicious would be the perfect summary for our special celebrations dinner in Fai.
We booked this restaurant for our 20th wedding anniversary. My husband informed when making the reservation, that we had something to celebrate and that we would love to have a romantic setup.
The table was very nicely decorated when we arrived. Welcome was very nice and friendly. Staff performances are good. Everything with tht famous Thai smile.
For starters we had scallops and watermelon salad with feta cheese. Very nice.n
Main dish was duck breast and red snapper ;cooked and served to perfection.
A bottle of Australian red wine for just under 1000 thb.
All very nice. We made a reservation, but this was probably not necessary, since the restaurant wasnt sold out.

“Perfect dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Not that easy to find, unless, you tell the taxi its part of Elements Resort, which we did a bit too late. Good to know for next time though.
The restaurant has a nice decoration. Nice music playing and friendly and welcoming staff.
Their French manager helped us with choosing the rights wines. A good bottle less than 1000 baht is not a bad price for Samui.
I had the tenderloin with feta and oranges. Never saw this combination, but it worked very well. My husband had the lambshops, cooked to perfection. As a desert he had the mango with sticky rice, together with an very tasty vanilla sauce.
Bill was just over 3000 baht.
We will come back next time.

“wonderful taste ; great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

a few days ago we made a reservation at Fai, recommended by the staff of the Conrad we were staying.
My wife had scallops and coconut as a starter, I had the scallops and ham. Starters were fantastic.
As a main dish we had the lamb tenderloin and the duck breast, both cooked to perfection.
We had an Argentinian bottle of Shiraz for 1400 THB with our meal.
Everything is very nice and very taste.
Not too expensive for the value we got.

“Très bonne cuisine française avec un service excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Part of the Elements resort ; this restaurant is very good, with good prices and french style cooking.
One of the waitresses speak french as well, which is very good for us.
The food is excellent and service good. Wines are not too expensive.
Really worth trying, even if you are not staying in Elements.
