This restaurant right on the beach is beautiful! The japanese black cod is to die for and the goats cheese rocket salad. Highly recommend!

“French food with spice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

I visit Koh Samui two-three times per year and always try to make sure that I visit this place for at least one lunch and dinner experience on each trip. The location is a bit difficult to find as, from the outside, this looks like a fairly non-descript building...while inside, prepare to be surprised by the tranquil and quiet setting overlooking a nice stretch of waterfront.

The food is simply great -- the blend of French with South-East's spices leads to some amazingly delicious combinations. My personal favorites are the steak and Yum Talay.

“Samui's best kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

I spend most of the year on Koh Samui and this restaurant is a must!
The creative and perfectly executed food, attentive service and beautifuly lit beach really is a great package!
The Chef, K.Som is friendly and very passionate about food...

This place deserves to be visited by every tourist on Samui who knows good food.

“you find everything.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2012

We benefit of the samuifinediningfestival. The dinner was perfect maybe too "west flavour" but the only remark. The service is attentive, the chief too. Located in a small and atypic hotel, along the beach. If you have the occasion go for it

“Lovely lovely lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

To go or not to go, that was the questions. Not many good experiences with Thai restaurants cooking Western food. But you don't become a partner of Relais & Chateaux just like that. And.....we never regret it for a second. Every single course we ordered was lovely. A fantastic (chilled) glass of red wine (Merlot Art, 2008 - Salomon Estate), friendly staff, more incredible food to come after our entree (foie gras with mango, melted on your tongue!) and just a perfect night out. The only thing I regret was that we did not come an hour earlier to enjoy the view. But be sure to expect great quality and the prices are high but it is definitely worth is.
