Well Cooked local food in a lovely beach location. Came here twice when I was staying locally. The van will collect your from your accommodation if you phone and ask. Wine list isn’t rude and staff try very hard.

We were a party of four who'd all come to drink cocktails, watch the sunset and then eat at the beach restaurant. The restaurant was extremely busy but we were nevertheless attended to by very friendly and attentive waiting staff who kept us fully informed...of the state of play in the restaurant. Our drinks were excellent, the sunset was truly amazing, and the food was truly delicious. Throughout the evening we sat at tables on the beach as did everyone else, watching the sunset all together gave the place an excellent atmosphere and buzz. For what we had consumed throughout the evening we thought cost was very reasonable. Highly recommended.More

We have visited this restaurant on two evenings during our 10 day stay nearby. Lovely to enjoy a cocktail on the beach watching the sun go down followed by a good evening meal. Would highly recommend

We ate here everyday of our week long stay on Samui! We have come back 7-8 times in 18 years. This family run business serves great Thai food with fabulous hospitality. Thanks for being so consistent!

This was a favourite of ours. The food was fresh and super tasty, the beer was cold and the staff were super friendly. This restaurant is located right on the beach but also has an indoor option in case of rough weather. It’s THE perfect...place to watch the sun set.More

Great menu, high quality food perfectly prepared. Perfect stop for lunch/sunset if you explore the island on the quieter end.

We were staying close by and came here because of the limited number of choices - all of that didn’t matter though when we were placed at our table right on the beach under the trees, feet in the warm sand and the strong breeze...blowing from the sea. We arrived after sunset, but it is the perfect spot to have your sundowner cocktail. The food was good, nice selection of fresh fish and Thai dishes ( they also do European food if needed) and the service was friendly. The perfect scenery already give you three of five points, the food certainly completes the picture.More

We loved this restaurant. It was very quiet and we sat on the beach to eat. We had fresh vegetarian spring rolls. My husband had chicken pad Thai and I had the pineapple fried rice which they were happy to make vegetarian for me. The...rice was so delicious. Their fresh fruit juices are some of the best we’ve had. There are some dogs there that are very friendly and one of the workers got the dog to do some tricksMore

This was our favourite of all the restaurants local to where we were staying. The food was extremely fresh, took a little longer as it was prepared from scratch, the fried options were wonderfully light and clearly fried in fresh oil. The fish was lovely...and moist, and the soft shell crab salad was absolutely fantastic. The menu was maybe too much of a mix of western and Thai, so had to read carefully, but vegetables served with our fish were crisp and perfectly cooked. Served alongside some well made cocktails. Highly recommend you try this place out!More
