Description: It's lively and fun. It's vibrant and exciting. It's a bar and a restaurant. It serves excellent Mediterranean and Thai cuisine. Its prices are incredibly reasonable. It's in the very heart of the bustling Chaweng Beach Road (opposite Chaweng Garden Beach Resort). And its name is Spago.

“Nothing special, but meets expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

One is spoilt for choices when in Chaweng road. So much that we just stepped into the first joint that took our fancy. Spago is an Italian restaurant and we took the risk of trying their Thai cuisine.

They had a decent set of options and we were happy with what was served however that "Thainess" or is it the 'Spicyness" was missing in their dishes. The ambience is good and its a nice spot to plan yourself and watch people go by. Service was good and courteous

“Nice but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Came here on our first night in Koh Samui. We all had pasta with seafood. We all enjoyed it, especially the crab and asparagus dish. Food was filling and satisfying, if not amazing. I don't agree with other reviews saying the portions were very small- we found them to be average portions. Could be cheaper, but it's on the main strip in Chaweng so I think that's to be expected. All in all, nice but nothing special.

“Basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

Basic Italian nothing amazing at all. The second I put my drink down it was taken away in that second. 10 ppl in the restaurant and 12 staff I love good service but this was rushed, maybe give people a little time and let them relax.

“too pricey for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

first impression was very good, speedy service, attentive servers, wonderful atmosphere, just exactly what we needed because we were very hungry, so once we ordered we waited patiently watching the chef making pizza right behind our table, one by one they served but none are ours, 1 hour passed and yet nothing came, we were practically slouching off the chair or tiredly leaning on the table, we then checked with the server and to find out that our orders were not printed!? but I admire his honesty because usually I will be expecting lame excuses, so our food came pretty quickly right after, with the extent of our hunger, we still couldn't find any niceness in the food, pizza looked impressive due to the live pizza making process right behind our table but pizza was bland and the extra topping of mushroom which cost 60baht seem really miserable, salmon springrolls of 3 cost 190baht, some Thai prawn dish (consists of 3 miserable prawns) cost 390baht, the most unacceptable part is that the steamed rice cost a good 60baht, like seriously? definitely won't be coming back anytime soon

“Don't bother”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We dropped in for a light lunch: just some pineapple rice and fred calamari. The rice was tasteless and the calamari stringy and rubbery. The plusses were that the service was great, the furniture comfortable and the restaurant ambient. But there are far better alternatives than Spago.
