Went to cafe 69 on our honeymoon and it was by far the best food we had on our trip.....we even went two nights in a row. The owner and chef is extremely nice and makes you feel as if you are family. He truly wants to make you the best dish you have had. I highly recommend his green curry chicken dumplings and his curry with a mango twist which i still think about daily. A must try!

Popped in 2 weeks ago for a drink to check it out after a fellow hotel guest recommended it. It was late afternoon and there was no one else in the restaurant we had already had lunch so sat down and had a cocktail with my fiancé. Vivien was really nice and we chatted throughout our visit. The menu, the decor and his manner left us knowing we would return to try the food.
Around a week later we stopped in with another couple for dinner, straight away Vivien said welcome back which was a nice touch as he clearly pays attention to his customers. 3 of us had the dumplings which are amazing. We all had a different main and were all very happy with the standard, presentation and price. He could charge 3 times as much and it would still be worth it. Pop in to try it if you are in koh samui

Amazing food! Authentic Thai flavours with a modern and inventive twist!

The owner Viviene treats his food more like art and the results are delicious!
We loved the chicken curry dumplings that were a modern take on money bags!
They were served on a scale which added to the overall atmosphere of this fun restaurant.
We also tried the soft shell crab which was in an authentic black pepper sauce.
Viviene was a great host and he also rewarded us with free tom yum inspired cocktails!

Please don't be deterred by all the silver, glitter and disco themed paraphenalia, the food here was some of the best in Bophut!

We would also advise not bothering trying to get "real" Thai food on the main strip of fishermans village as it is all very touristy and not traditional Thai at all!

The food here was awesome! Funky little restaurant with lovely staff. The location is not the best (the view is of a road) but that doesnt matter as its such a fun and cool place to eat! Really nice. Great value too,

Went to Cafe 69 last night. Sure it's a little off th beaten track but probably a good job as iif it were it would constantly be full and you wouldn't get a table (it probably has only about 20 or so covers) Vivienne is obviously really proud of his restaurant - from the decor, the wonderfully imaginative/ delicious food, but to the lovely service as well. Here is someone that takes such pleasure in making sure your Cafe69 experience is one you won't forget. He is engaging, endearing and above all so enthusiastic about the food that he serves. Our particular favourite was the Green Curry Chicken Dumplings! Only drawback is that the restaurant is right on the main road - but to tell you the truth when we got inside you could have been anywhere! A well deserved current holder of the #1 position in our opinion!
