“Great place”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

We visited this place 3 times while staying at the Intercontinental. The food is a fraction of the price and it is very good. Try the white snapper with chili, basil and lime. It doesn't look much, but it is a quaint little beach place with friendly staff and great cocktails. It is a 5 minute walk up the beach from the hotel and it is well worth it.

Dear Slavko C,
It was very pleased to hosted you at I-Talay during stay in Samui. We thank you a good review and also comment as our service quite slow and staff limited in English. As we are locally restaurant and also most of staff we use from local closed by to support local life...therefore the limited communication is happen...however, we will work on this point to improve it...

Thank you and look to welcome you again for future visit.

“Just Beautiful”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

This small restaurant is just North of the Intercontinental Hotel. Instead of paying 5 star prices, enjoy the same beach and view in a simple open air restaurant 400m away. Great food and service with the best Mojito on Samui .... fresh everything for 120Bht. :)
