The restaurant has the best location in Bophut beach, being located directly on the beach, so when you sit at your table your feet are in the sand, you see up and down the beach, the see, basically all you can dream of. The feeling is definitely more upscale than most of the other places at Bophut, with massive tables,... More

I'm so glad I ventured into this lovely restaurant, set in a traditional-style house. Dining is possible right in the beach but I hadn't booked and so was sat at a lovely table looking out onto the ocean through stunning teak windows. The red curry was superb, extra spicy (I asked!) and generous, as was the shrimp tempura starter. Plenty... More

We stopped in this restaurant on our first night in Bophut and did not find one that could stand up to the same standard so returned here for our last evening as well. Service was somewhat rude but food was excellent. Especially the fresh seafood such as the lobster and tiger prawns!

Good service and tasty food. Mainly are the foreigners. Romantic atmosphere by the sea, music are so nice! i will say this is the best in Samui but as its located inside the fisher's village, so it is not so well known by the travellers. Its better than the top 30 restaurant on the list. Will definitely visit again. 良好的服務和美味的食物。... More

We went there because of a recommendation and were really surprised by the quality and the atmosphere. If you are looking for authentic and typical thai food, you have to go to this restaurant. Sit down on the beach, your feet in the sand and enjoy a very good meal. The service can be better but the food is very... More

We searched for a good restaurant and despite of this restaurant is not in between the first places pursuant the reviews from TripAdvisor, I consider this restaurant very very good! Because the view is beautiful, you can stay inside, outside in the pier and outside on the sand. We stayed in a table on the sand, with candles, and we... More

I wanted a comfortable eating environment as we were traveling with our 14mth old baby. Krua Bophut did not disappoint. The atmosphere was relaxing, clean, scenic and the staff attentive. Unfortunately we were pressed for time, so needed to rush lunch, however the staff made it happen for us! Food was good, would return again next time.

Recommended by a barman in our hotel, so we decided to go here . First impressions were good . Starter ( mixed plate) was good. King prawns were not bad , but had better elsewhere the previous night at half the price . Sweet and sour chicken was poor . Sauce was mostly ketchup I think and the chicken was... More

Walking down Fishermans wharf our first night in, and stopped here for dinner. After looking at a few restaurants in the area, this seemed reasonable priced, but the quality of food is what made my choice. Western main chef (maybe German) at front, and they grill/seafood is all at the front so you can walk past and see how they... More
