“A really awesome restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2011

I am sorry this review is in English but I don’t speak French! This is one amazing restaurant. We are staying in Maenam but decided to go here after reading about it in an old copy of the local paper. If you are after really nice French food then this is your place. The view is about as good as it gets and the service is excellent. If you are on Koh Samui this place is not to be missed!

“Beautiful place but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2011

First i have to say the view is probably one of the best in samui, i will recommend it for a drink.
Now regarding the food, I order a beef steak rare came out an overcook peace of meat which might be beef or buffalo.. the blue cheese sauce, well i'm still looking for the cheese..
My friend had a very dried duck leg... The waitress was very pleasant.
Anyway for 2 of us we paid 1600 bath without alcohol

“Great restaurant at Papillon hotel/resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

This is the restaurant at the hotel/resort I am staying in, Papillon Resort in Koh Samui.
I stayed at this hotel/resort because of a recommendation.
The restaurant here is wonderful. There is an amazing view of the bay.
The French and Thai food is exceptionally good and a really good price.
There is a good selection of wine that is considerably more affordable than other restaurants of this standard on Koh Samui.
If I were not staying here I would be very happy to come and eat here.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2011

What a find! We could not have wished for a better located restaurant. Then to have helpful and friendly staff speaking Thai, English and French, which was fun to try out again!
Our meals arrived in good time and tasted wonderful.Pricing is spot on, oh and did I mention the view, beautiful and peaceful, no busy road here. On completion of our meal we took our drinks to the pool for a bit more of a relax. Doesn't get any better.

“Stunning views and stunning food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

This place is fantastic; I read a review in the local paper about the restaurant and decided to try it out.
The restaurant is the last one on the north end of Chaweng beach. The views from the terrace, where you can eat, are spectacular. You feel like you are dining miles from anywhere not just a few minutes away from Chaweng, it is so peaceful and beautiful.
The food is fantastic, really great French food and surprisingly at a really affordable price.
The staff are great, really attentive but not invasive and they speak English, French and Thai.
This is a wonderful place to enjoy really good food at a really affordable price at a not to be missed location
