“Very good but could have been even better...”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Lovely setting, good food, poor wine list (very expensive as in all of Samui), staff lovely although English not great. Had a overall great experience here, the slow cooked pork with risotto was the best thing I ate throughout our trip. Corkage at 1500 baht extortionate, although I was kindly given a reduction. I would have ordered something of the wine list but there really was nothing that I fancied. Would I go back, yes if you want a top drawer (for Samui) romantic dinner. Both the Western and Thai dishes are great and not too expensive. Just please reduce the corkage fee and / or stock some better wines please!

“Delicious beach-front dining!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

H Bistro is in a gorgeous location, peaceful, and absolutely delicious. They serve both Thai and European food, and they have a separate vegetarian menu. It's definitely on the expensive side, but the food is great. Make sure to save room for dessert!

“Great food in a great location!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

Tucked a little bit away from the hustle and the bustle of Fisherman's Village. But only a short walk. Just enough to prepare your appetite for a wonderful meal. The place to sit is the tables closest to the beach. There is enough staff and the service is polite and attentive but not intrusive. The food was tasty and prepared with care. Only small issue is the price of imported wines that is a bit higher than the Thai average but it sure is worth it! Just don't order the champagne! A nice Sauvignon Blanc will be good enough! Will definitely come back on my next visit to Koh Samui!

“Dinner under the stars was amazing...”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We stayed at the Hansar resort and had dinner at H a couple of times, breakfast every day and also had the private beach front dining.

The breakfast was nice and varied, with standard items such as cheese and sliced meats, but also Thai dishes and different options every day, you can also request different dishes from the staff including egg's benedict, bacon and so on. After 2 weeks it felt a bit samey, but that's the same with every hotel I have ever stayed at!

Dinner was lovely - although the prices are higher than in the Fishermans Village we felt we got great value as everything was cooked to perfection. The views are stunning and although it is hot (we are in Thailand after all!) the staff kindly ensured we had a fan blowing cool air for us and fussed over us.

The private dining on the beach was spectacular with our own table set up with flowers, burners and a gorgeous gazebo / canopy to isolate us a bit more. Every dish was fabulous and the service excellent. As this is where I chose to propose to my (now) fiancé the staff had pushed the boat out for me and made it a really memorable experience.

Great place, great staff, great food.

“Terrific breakfast”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Excellent service, great breakfast choices with both the buffet and made to order omelets. Stunning views. Breakfast is included for hotel guests - one of the best we've ever enjoyed at a hotel.
