Description: Tamarina Bistro&Bar is a Thai fusion seafood spot boating one of the best sunset view on Samui island. We value the art of traditional Thai cooking in combination with locally sourced seafood and a twist of Italian influence. Come relax and unwind under our ocean front Tamarind tree, we are ready to serve you!

We had a nice meal here, good food and good service. Location is nice with a nice sea view. The Thai food was authentic and the staff spoke both Thai and English.

When you need a break from Thai food, this is a great spot to go to. A little expensive but enjoyable.

We went for breakfast, and HAD to have the 190 THB Absolute Bloody Mary's, you can't beat THAT ;-) we were the only ones in that morning, had this place to ourselves, and it was simply awesome. We both had the traditional English breakfasts, HEARTY servings, and just what A Brit's Mum would make at home, The views were AWESOME, and the place just felt welcoming & homey, despite it's large occupancy area. I bet this place fills up during Football & Rugby Matches, and I imagine that there are a LOT of local expats who frequent this great spot. We will visit again, as the menu is super diverse, and full of great food selections to try from everywhere ! Cheers!

The grill plate with meat is very delicious, the seaman basket is deep fried fish like fish and chips. The price is like normal European prices, not cheep.
