“If alcohol is food this place is great”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Hi Guys

this is not a restaurant it is a bar on the side of the coast line. To say it is rustic is a understatement, however the cocktails are great and the prices even better. If you like a kak in the bos this place is for you as there are no toilets so be prepared.

we went down a couple of times to cool bar and they arrange a long tail boat for the day for us which was great with nice snorkling. But lets be honest here the only reason you visit a place like this is for the drinks and we had a couple to say the least.

very enjoyable.
thanks

“Not so cool”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This is definitely a bar and not a restaurant. Bit disappointed when we arrived hoping for some dinner to discover they don’t serve any. However not a bad location so we stayed for a couple of cocktails. They were not mixed so well and seemed a bit understrength. Also discovered there is not a toilet which is a bit of an inconvenience to say the least.

“Amazing people, amazing place”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

What can I say un and doung are the nicest people you could meet. We spent many a night laughing and chatting, drinking ( of course ). Nothing is to much trouble for them to sort out for you. Doung took my wife to the local fish market to get barracuda, chicken and huge prawns and we had a BBQ that night at the cool bar. The cool bar is the most amazing place. A great place to relax and meet people from all over the world. Un is a master at card tricks and also a top fisherman. Doung is a great host and his the master cocktail maker. We shall defo return to koh samui next year.
