While the food was very good, we did think the restaurant was overpriced. We were somewhat sorry we did not try the other restaurants at the hotel more.

Do yourself a favour & visit the four seasons on your trip. When we arrived we waited in an outdoor alfresco area looking down on the whole island (spectacular). Then picked up on a golf buggie to be escorted to the restaurant. The hotel grounds are so beautiful (secret oasis). The restaurant itself is stunning & the service couldn't be... More

Can you imagine I had this burger three time for lunch in my 6 days trip? Because it was the best burger I ever had other than in and out in US.

Unbeatable location. Main meals delicious but on the small side unless you order 2 plates of side vegetables. Dessert disappointing and nearly all were frozen including the Bailey's crime brûlée.

Our family of 4 adults visited Pla Pla for dinner and had a lovely evening from start to finish. When we arrived we gave our car keys to the valet and were driven down to the restaurant in a buggy by a very polite but friendly young man.

Description
Located right on the beach, Pla Pla, meaning "many fish" in Thai, is a casual spot for an extensive selection of fish and seafood and Western and Thai favourites in the daytime. In the evening, the restaurant transforms into a stylish venue for creative Mediterranean cuisine.

At lunchtime, dine in the shade of palm trees and enjoy items such as light and tasty tomato gazpacho with prawns, grilled watermelon, avocado, cucumber pearls and mint; try the not-to-miss yellow fin tuna burger with tomato chutney, coriander, vegetables and light mustard soy cream on a sesame bun; or go local with the Phad Thai Kang wok-fried rice noodles with Samui rock lobster.

In the evening, the venue takes on a more sophisticated ambience and an entirely different menu showcasing the culinary genius of Executive Chef Alex Gares. Savour delectable Wagyu rib-eye with potato and pancetta terrine, morning glory and green peppercorn sauce; or go for the authentic Catalan experience with Pata Negra Gran Reserva Iberico ham with pa amb tomaquet (traditional tomato bread).

With Thai sandstone walls and floors providing a dramatic contrast to the steel-blue and silver decor that defines the restaurant's ambience, Pla Pla is the perfect setting for a beachside lunch or dinner. Seating is offered on an open, fan-cooled deck, on the open-air terrace, or right on the white-sand beach.
