“Good...but not Great (3.5 really)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Firstly, I must point out we visited this restaurant three times during our holidays, so it wasn't bad. Some dishes like the "Crispy yummy pork belly & Kaffir lime leaves," and the "garlic fried rice" we ordered each time, and the rest sifted through the menu and were happy but not overwhelmed. Service was sometimes erratic and waitresses seldom smiled...but had enough food for the kids to remain content if they were not adventurous that day (i.e. they do deliver a very good pizza).

I would return if was back in Nathon and had to stop...otherwise I would continue driving 10 mins up the West coast to my favourite restaurant on the island in Bang Po.

“Tremendous value and excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Right at the end of the road in Nathon this restaurant has excellent outside seating right next to the sea,very good menu and swift waiting staff who even understood my Thai!
I had scallops in a curry sauce with fried morning glory with garlic and rice .
A large beer and a coffee to finish all for 10euros, unbeatable value and a very pleasant ambiance.
Nathon is not really on the tourist map apart from being the ferry port to get to the mainland but I really like it and you dont pay tourist prices eIther

“ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES ON SAMUI”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

On our second visit to Koh Samui, we just keep coming back to this place time and time again. Firstly, the usual caveats. Yes, it's outside, it's a small, family-run establishment, and there are no Michelin stars, but the service is quick and very friendly, the menu is extensive and there is enough choice to suit all tastes, the location right on the beach is enchanting, and they have free wifi. We have eaten here on at least ten occasions across two trips to KS thus far, and have not been disappointed. The vegie burgers (with home made patties) are particularly good and they serve a variety of all-day breakfasts It is superior to most other similar establishments on the island, and for a quick inexpensive meal it's hard to beat.

“Try the Barracuda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We came here a couple of times on our holiday. Delicious food, generous portions and amazingly priced! The chargrilled barracuda was an absolute favourite!
