“Great food, wine and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

It is easy to find good food with a view in Koh Tao, but finding all that plus good wine is rare (it is more of a beer place!). My friends and I had a lovely dinner and my mixed grill (fish) was delicious.

Good atmosphere and good service and they serve food until much later hours than in the rest of Koh Tao. Definitely recommend it!

Nice and trendy place with seaview. Delicious fish. Snapper with garlic.... Never had a fish like that! White tables are standing on the beach. Friendly personel!

“Paradise Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

This place is the perfect place to have a decent dinner with friends on Koh Tao. my personal favourite dish is the cashew nuts sweet and sour chicken, since their version is the crispiest I've ever had :) sometimes the service is a bit time consuming - but is absolutely worth it. plus, quality needs its time and nobody should be in a rush on such a relaxed island anyway! :D

“Simply delicious!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

First of all, I heard so much about this place and yet I agreed. The foods here are amazing, fresh and tasty. The price is a little higher than many restaurants on Koh Tao but it is well worth it.

“Coolest restaurant in Ko Tao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We visited several other higher ranked restaurants on the island, but Whitening is our top pick. It delivered a combination of tasty food, good wine (hard to find in Thailand), pretty good service considering the place was full and "pumping", dipping our feet into the soft white sand under the tables - all while enjoying watching boats coming and going at nearby Mae Haad port. Thai and seafood options were all good, nice dessert and margaritas and ambient "grown up" recorded music. A romantic night to remember on this amazing tropical fish island paradise.
