The reviews were right, this is quality food in a small restaurant overlooking the sea. We had a steak and chicken dish with the house white wine. The steak wasn't quite done the way I asked but it was still well cooked and I enjoyed it.

My partner and I booked a table based on the reviews and both had the steak. I massively disappointed as it was very tough and hard to cut.

The setting is nice on the beach and the owner helpful but the food wouldn't make us go back unfortunately.

Although we weren't staying in Bophut it was definitely worth the taxi ride for the food at Nirvana. The food is excellent and also wonderful value for money. Contrary to a previous report, we thought that the house wine was very good and as frequent visitors to France, we are fussy. In our two weeks in Koh Samui definitely the best food we tasted. Torben and Lizzie are wonderful hosts and make you feel very welcome - they also have a fantastic sense of humour which we loved. Nirvana has an open kitchen which is great as you can watch what is being cooked too. My husband really enjoyed the pork fillet - in his words it was exquisite. For me the fillet steak was exceptional. It is a small restaurant but sitting on the terrace or on the beach is a wonderful experience and one not to be missed in Fisherman's Village. Wishing Nirvana continuing success.

We were walking along the beach looking for a restaurant and found a table at Nirvana. On arrival we were greeted by Torben who served us throughout our meal. He was friendly, professional and helpful providing delicious food and service.

We chose the Fillet of Pork with pasta which was exceptional and a Thai Chicken Dish.

It is clear to see why the restaurant is ranked No 3.

Nirvana clearly is a well established restaurant providing individual service far above many restaurants in the village. Although only small it is one we will return to before completing our holiday in Bophut.

Small, intimate restaurant located in the Fisherman’s Village with in-door, and a few tables on a patio facing the ocean. Small menu with a selection of Thai, Western & meat dishes. Presentation and food was excellent. Restaurant run by very friendly South African couple. Really worth a visit!
