We wanted to break a little the Thai food with western flavors. We found what we were looking for and way more. Intimate restaurant where the owner is also the chef and the weiter. The dish were vary tasty and with a twist. I warmly recommend this place, go for the spicy meatballs, and mash potatos!

We had a delicious meal here and loved every dish. The owner is a wonderful host and she took great care of us. The ambiance here is absolutely great. A must visit if you're looking for an alternative to Thai / Asian food on the island.

If you want to taste some divine homemade potatoes and chocolate mousse, then look no further! After eating Thai food for one and a half week our stomachs just couldn't take it anymore. We started longing after the good old Belgian meals, which we thought we would never find on Koh Tao. After three days of fantasizing about mashed potatoes... More

And such good service!! Had a very nice night with a friend of mine at this restaurant. Someone recommended it to us, and we were not disappointed! Big portions of deliciousness and it certainly both taste and feels like home, with a very personal atmosphere. If you go, you should try their passion fruit mojitos as well. Yumm!!

Very friendly owner, nice atmosphere. I ate pasta carbonara and it was good! Bacon could have been a little more crispy to my taste. But higly recommend!

In an easy and friendly atmosphere, you can eat a good food. Nothing special, honestly, just to have a break from the thai food. The menu consists in some german dishes and some crazy receips ( italian ragu style with chicken???) The general atmosphere and taste sounds to be in a home kitchen!

Simple surroundings and delicious home style dishes. Big portions and a warm welcome by the German owner makes a refreshing change from the hectic hustle found in some of the other restaurants in the area.
