Over rated and the first time disappointed by the TripAdvisor rating. Not on the top 10% of the island as currently rated. Kids dishes were very bad with the chicken/beef dishes dry and hard to chew on. Sea food dishes more ok but nothing more...More

Great setting with a great view. Spoilt by really disgusting cocktails and a very bland, oily seafood platter. Place needs some serious TLC as well. I expected lots more after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor.

Even we had some problems to find the way to the restaurant (just follow the only sign at the main road close to the Ploice station) we had excellent variety of thai and western style food. The location is direct at the beach so nice...More

We wanted a beach front lunch today. Read about Zenzibar on TripAdvisor. The signage is very poor and not easy to find the restaurant at all. Very dirty and filthy by the river entrance. We ordered some Thai food. My meal was absolutely tasteless and...More

Great food and good service in a typically ramshackle (by western standards) Thai beach restaurant. The only downside is the location - difficult to find and the creek about 200 yards up the beach has rather cut it off since last year.

Zanzibar has a great location right on the beach with a fantastic view and super authentic carry. English is not there best language, but there service is great and they will finally understand you

We went there several times to have a drink and swim in the sea. The service is very friendly and the beach rather quiet. They also have umbrellas against the sun if needed!

What an amazing hidden gem on maenam beach!! The seafood was fresh and delicious, (the banana and coconut soup for dessert was superb), the place and beach location felt romantic and the owner was delightful. I will never forget my time here. ❤️

We eat here after a long journey from Bangkok. Stunning location on the shore of Mae Nam Beach looking to koh phangan. We all enjoyed our meal and the service was excellent . It's definitely worth a visit if in Mae Nam

Hi, I have just seen this question, so sorry for the late response. I have no idea about opening hours, or taxi. Were you only in Koh Samui for 1 afternoon? Not enough time.

A small restaurant lay in the middle of the clean and uncrowded of Maenam beach, close to the sea and you can feel the sand on your feet.
