We heard good reviews of Café 69 on previous visits to Ko Samui, so decided to try it this time. A lot of the dishes are innovative twists on Thai cuisine, if the restaurant was in a major city, it would be really successful. The taste and presentation are top class. I particularly enjoyed the green curry pie, I'm not... More

I have lived in Chiang Mai (northern thailand, known for the best food) for 4 years. I am not a big fan of Koh Samui...nonetheless I will go there JUST to eat at Cafe 69. Don't let the decor full you. Chef Vivienne is incredible. Ask the stay of recommendations.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and enjoying lots of Thai food But had a lot of the standard Thai dishes. Cafe 69 was a refreshing twist and one of the best meals we've had in Thailand! Creative spins on Thai classics and the specials are not to be missed. We had the chicken green curry pie, Thai... More

As vegetarians, we were delighted that 69 has a separate vegetarian menu. To start we chose papaya salad and tofu rolls, which were out of this world! So tasty and fresh. The portion was huge, but we had to eat it all as they were so good. We also had veggie spring rolls, again fabulous, the best spring rolls we... More

Looks more like a shady bar on the main street of Bo Phut. Food is fabulous. The plates also look great. We had the chicken green curry pie with mango, tempura prawns ( sauce is the highlight!) and Korean chicken. Go, but make a reservation at dinner time.

We were staying in Fishermans Village, nearby and stumbled on this restaurant day 2 whilst having a walkabout. You need to walk to the circular road, away from the village to get here. It rang bells for me as I did research places to eat on TripAdvisor before coming. We liked it so much I booked for Valentine's Day. I... More

We had several meals there in February 2017. In our opinion this is perhaps one of the most interesting restaurants in Thailand. Two aspects are notable: the originality of the food (Thai with a twist, fresh ingredients cooked at perfection) and the charm and charisma of Vivian (the owner/chef), always moving between the kitchen and the diners, taking the pulse...
