looking for a spot in Maenam for having a special diner, I couldnt get a seat at the well lnown Barracuda Restaurant. I then went around and found the newly opened Café Mathis 100 Meters away towards the beach which attracted me by a spectacular decoration !! I was told later that 2 French artists made that superb location.
Looking at the menu I was going for the Thai part of it after discussion with the young and bright owner. Though he also offer succulent European food and best hamburgers as well. I took the Barracuda grilled and my friend the King Prawns Pepper sauce, absolutely delicious !!! TheN we shared a home made Ice cream that is surely competing with the very best in the world for me like Berthillon Ice cream in Paris
Staying in such deco envirement and eating such quality food will surely see this new restaurant be in the top 5 of the Island within soon since prices are also reasonable
Just couple of remarks, the deco is superb as said but need surely a final touch such as plants to warm up the atmosphere. The new waiter will hopefully improve his service in coming days, luckily the owner was doing great to make us comfortable

I been to Mathis Cafe 2 days after his opening , a friend of mine suggest me to go there if I want to be surprise by the food and the place itself . So I went there with 4 friends for our last night in Koh Samui .

first we start with delicious bottle of wine from France, then all order 5 different meal . I had the bacon double cheese WAGYU Burger, and others had T-bone,Ribeye, Lamb shop, Barracuda .

All of us been surprise by the quality of food we had in our plates !!!
For myself the rare WAGUY burger with home-made french fries was perfect.
After all we decide to try some desert and we all agree to have the home-made chocolate fondant with Vanilla bourbon ice cream OMG no words to describe how good it was .

We really enjoy our last night at this beautiful place listening some nice lounge music with Awesome cocktails made by the owner .

Thanks all of you guys to make our last night unforgettable . We definitely recommend this place to all of you guys.

We will be back in 6month.
