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.

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.

What a great place to be for my Birthday meal, idyllic setting a good food. Watched the sunset before we started eating wonderful. The food was lovely, a little more expensive than we would normally pay but it was worth it.Service was very good too.

Really good place with fantastic food, and the best view for sunset in the area. But pricy though according to local standards. Baht 2500 for a family of 4 including drinks

As above. The squid in chilli paste is to die for. Sun beds on beach and waiter service. Just perfection.
