During a self guided driving tour of Samui, we found French Kiss Thanod on TripAdvisor (thank god for wifi!). The rave reviews are certainly true to form. The view from French Kiss Thanod is absolutely spectacular, and the service, atmosphere and food are to match. We shared a beef burger and a whole baked fish stuffed with star anise and thai basil both served with a side of chips and salad. My partner described the burger as the rarest meat he had tried in a burger, but the most delicious. The whole baked fish was TO DIE FOR! So fresh and flavoursome. The servings were extremely generous, and well priced for the quality of food. It is probably a little bit more expensive than other restaurants but certainly not expensive compared to a meal of this quality in Australia. After eating at some other great restaurants in Samui (Zazen, Sala Samui and the Larder), we decided this was our best meal of our trip. I highly recommend it!

We found this place whilst trundling round the island on a moped. Stopped for a beer and the view and came back the following evening for a meal which did not disappoint in any way. The view is amazing and adds to the whole experience. If we return to Ko Samui we will certainly be returning to this place.

We received a warm and friendly welcome. Staff are fabulous and great fun. They certainly aim to please and the food is excellent, fresh and well presented. Set in an idealic location right on the beach front. Very reasonably priced for superb quality food. Well worth a visit or 2 or more - highly recommended!

My husband and I ended our three week vacation at the end of the island and were so fortunate to find this bar/restaurant. Everyone is so hospitable, but especially Christian! This place has the best seafood we have ever had, the best drinks and has an amazing view. We think about our time there so often and can't wait to return some day. If you want to have good food and drink and feel happy, go here!
