“Stay away, so bad it's disgusting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

With a 1001 great options we manage to pick the one bad restaurant in koh Samui.

- bad location on the beach as can't sit on the beach
- food (steak, I know.. Who eats steak in koh Samui?) it's not meat, just fat
- asked for medium tenderloin and what we got was a to the bone fried piece of McDonald's quality meat
- had to pay a fortune for it.

So stay away! Go to any other place along that strip and you'll find the food is wonderful.

“Place to go if you need western food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

As the other reviews say if you fancy a burger or so.

We opted for a chicken bacon n cheese burger and a double cheese burger! They arrived with crinkle cut chips and great coleslaw! We really could not fault the food and went away very full..... Even though they forgot to bring our onion rings but to be honest we has that much food we were happy they forgot, though this could very easily have annoyed people!

All in all very good And definitely recommend the burgers!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

We chose to eat here on our last night in Thailand. To be honest, we had overdone the Thai food and the option of a bit of "western" food drew us! We were allowed to view the menu outside without pressure, which we appreciated. After a reasonable time we were approached by a French (I think) gentleman who asked if he could assist. We were told all the tables overlooking the beach were taken, but we were offered a table overlooking the entrance. There were fans blowing above each table making the area pleasantly cool. The service by the Thai waiter was excellent. In the end we could not resist and opted for the Thai food which was fantastic. The price was reasonable as the Thai food is far cheaper than western food and we left happy wishing we had visited before our last night. The establishment was well suited to families and larger groups and couples alike.

“Excellent food, location and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I were looking for a place to scape from Thai food and found this restaurant. Since we stepped in we felt welcome. The menu has good variety and they serve pretty fast. The view is amazing even when it was at night. The service in general was really good. Just make sure to bring cash as that was the only method of payment available.

“Good Ribs in Samui”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Plenty of choice on the menu. Attentive service and a great view. Cost $66 AUD for a shared entree, 2 mains, a latte, 2 wines and 2 beers. I have eaten ribs in many countries and these are up there with the best. Read one review about frozen food being used. What a load of B ...t. All fresh as far as I could tell.
