“Inventive Thai food with a great host”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

You should go out of your way to eat here. Somehow we found it a little are to find. Don't know why as there was a great big 69 facing the road.

This small, flamboyant restaurant has heaps of character and the food is terrific. In fact possibly one of the best meals we had on Samui.

“fantastic twist”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Lovely friendly people. Owner takes time to chat to you. Cosy small laid back atmosphere.
Food was a great modern twist on thai food i.e something a bit different to the usual. We enjoyed it a lot as it was unique food not found anywhere else.

OUTSTANDING is all we can say about this AMAZING eatery. The owner has made a classy, intimate, fun, warm welcoming place to dine on the most EXCELLENT diverse, creative menu selection, and the DRINK menu is off the chain ! Those drinks ..WOW..couldn't have had more than 2, lol..they have a punch for sure ! My husband and I got to be the first patrons on a Monday early afternoon, Vivienne was an AMAZING host to us, and made us feel so welcome, as if we were family. A MUST GO TO place while on the island.. THANK YOU VIVIENNE for an excellent afternoon ;-) Cori & Brian

“Fantastic Thai With a Twist”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We ate at Cafe 69 after reading all the hype on TA. We were quite surprised to find it was so close to our hotel (Hansar).

At first impression it doesnt strike you as what you might expect from such a highly regarded restaurant. However, first impressions aside, we found it to be a truly enjoyable dining experience. The service from Vivien the owner was friendly and attentive. His intrrpretation of Thai cuisine was thoroughly enjoyable - we had the green curry dumplings, slow cooked chicken leg and pad thai which were all excellent. They do awesome cocktails as well.

If you're after something a little out of the ordinary, i would highly recommend a visit to Cafe 69. Sure its no H-Bistro or Six Senses in it's setting, but if youre after a memorable and enjoyable meal then you cant go wrong.

Late review we were here in may this year and still talk about the food and host here at number 69!!! We dined here several times and 69 never failed to amaze us, wee vivienne is a gem! ! Loved our visits and tasty cocktails! Dining here is a must and we will certainly be back again in the summer!! Food is fresh from local market and Vivienne is so adventurous with what he cooks!! Basically if u want good food and drinks at a very reasonable price eat here ... James and Karen xx
