“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Me and my family ate there last night. Mr Pang and Noy could not have been better hosts. We knew we should look out for this place as earlier reviews had hinted. The tempura prawns and spring rolls were heavenly, my wife had the red snapper and home made chips. Great beach setting sort of surfy like Tarifa Spain. We went in to Mae Nam from Four Seasons where we are staying, dropped down one of the beach roads off the main drag, you need to head to the beach and then go right when you hit the beach. After Zansebar, as you get to the Mae Nam river outlet, you'll see the flags on the beach. Sort of don't want to tell anyone because its so nice it might get spoiled but they deserve to do so well.... so there you go secrets out!

“Perfect beach bar and restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Nature bar is the best place to chill out in Mae Nam. Gorgeous beach location, perfect for dining overlooking the sunset at around 6-6.30pm (in july) or just to lounge about at all day. The food is amazing and the cocktails even better! We ate here more than once during our stay and went down for drinks a few times as the atmosphere is so laid back and we felt so welcomed.
We were staying in Samui on a volunteer trip, teaching in the local school. Poy and Noi arranged a tour of the island for us as well as answering as many questions as we could throw at them. They definitely make you feel at home as soon as you sit down. Some of the nicest people we met in Thailand.

I urge everyone reading this to go visit Nature Bar right now! You won't regret it!

This little restaurant has a great location on the beach with perfect service and away from crowded beach bars. If you want to chill out with a great view this is a must.

“Good food, could be an option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here after deciding to take a walk past zenzibar for a bit before dinner.

I am always a little sceptical about restaurants that are dominated by people with only one review, although thankfully this place was decent.

The food was good, not particularly stand out, but still very nice in an area slightly limited for meals.

Could be an option if you're staying longer than 5 nights in maenam, otherwise there are slightly better in the area.

“A hidden little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

It is amazing how a little exploring off the main drag will lead you to good things.

From the minute we walked off the beach we were welcomed and made to feel at home. The food menu caters for Western and Thai. We had a mixture and loved it all. I was amazed by the bruschetta and would have to say it was pretty close to being the best one I have ever tasted.

The drinks were fantastic and the atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. Poy is a great host and we will definately pop in again.
