I booked ahead for lunch to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Layla was super-helpful,including organising a cake and offering to arrange transport (the restaurant is 40-50 minutes away from Chaweng), but we found hire cars slightly cheaper and more flexible. The food was truly excellent and the service attentive while not intrusive. The restaurant was not very busy, but they had... More

I was looking for somewhere to book on the evening of the day I proposed to my girlfriend. I contacted a few places but these guys were so helpful and nice. They offered to set up a private table for us on the beach to watch the sunset at no extra charge. They were very attentive during our stay and... More

We have come here 3 times and tried a different dish everytime except the Papaya Salad which we have everytime because it is so delicious and a great accompaniment to all the food. The chef is excellent and the menu more original then most Thai food. The cocktails are outstanding and so delicious. The view hard to beat. I recommend... More

The food is not only tasty but tastefully presented! Good variety, good service, and right on the beachfront.

Ocean views and clean bathroom where you can shower after swimming which we loved. Staff were attentive and arranged a taxi from our hotel. Food is good but wine like anywhere inThailand is expensive. Bill was $7,500 (AUD $300) but that included 3 bottles of wine, cocktails and a sampling of meals. We stayed all afternoon and swam until sunset.... More

Staff were very accommodating to our large wedding party. The place is right on the beach and has great views. Would recommend if in the area, but not worth the trek as a destination spot.

We took a private long fishtail boat trip around the 5 islands and it was a really nice experience. We also stopped for a spot of snorkelling and it was really enjoyable. The boat driver had thought to bring some loaves of bread to throw in for the fish which attracted them. We really loved it and had a great... More

Had dinner here whilst staying at the intercontinental, they pick you up and drop you off. Nice service, great location on the beach and food was very tasty. Not sure why people think it is expensive, this is what you pay in ko Samui for quality food and location.
