“Fantastic friendly owner”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

This place was our daily stop off after an evening our and the French owner was always charming, friendly and extremely welcoming! He always brought out tapas type food for us and the meal we had at his bar was very good.

“Keep looking?”
Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

The owner was very friendly and showed us his specialty French food on an iPad. Two steaks we had we'd give 3 out of 5. I had roast beef which came out entirely raw, they were happy to slice up and cook further it just wasn't as expected given I've eaten French food a number of times and it wasn't roasted and falling apart it was pan fried, disappointing. The house red was pretty horrible however the other wines were fine. Deserts nothing special we asked for nutella on the pancakes and instead got chocolate sauce. The alcohol received was not what we ordered despite querying the taste. Okay meal overall, nice place but wouldn't go back.

“Franco Asian Delight”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We were welcomed by a charming and enthusiastic French Man who seemed well traveled and on top of his game, after he helped us select our fares from the colorful pictures from his ipad, he spent some time talking about kosamui and its highlights, the food was superb, service attentive and precise . We will come back for sure.

“really no more than average - certainly not worth its tripadvisor rating”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We tend the side of generosity and giving the benefit of the doubt. Well, the food was not bad, but we actually wished afterwards we hadn't stopped there and instead had either just eaten off the stalls (Friday evening walking street), which are at least as good, or else gone to some of the really very good restaurants around. We were wondering afterwards how places get these averages on tripadvisor, and speculating than there might be a lot of organised self-referring going on.... In a way, the Tripadvisor rating (advertised outside) made the disappointment worse...

“Do not look enywhere else in Bophut, this is the best place by far!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

What a surprise i had when I went there with my parents and my brother. We were looking for a "normal" place to have dinner, and we have met the owner outside, very attentive, with a great background and superb hospitality.

He shows us his food ( pictures on ipad) and explain us the different ingredients.
We sat there, and have a few drinks which are a great value for money, enjoy his food (you have to try his australian tenderloin just divine!) This restaurant was one of my best food and beverage experience i had during my stay in Koh Samui.

If you are looking for a great dinner, with good food and drinks, good value for money and great atmosphere do not look any further!
