This place looks very swish from the outside. Having walked around we stumbled across this small busseling place. We hadn't made a reservation so got sat in a small room with 3 other tables, not the ambience we were hoping for when we walked in. It felt like we were putting them out by wanting to eat there. Our order was taken and 25minutes later, having been sat staring at a white wall with no a/c our drinks hadn't arrived. Our food took about 45 minutes. The food was ok, but over priced compared with the tasty stuff you can get down the road. Our drinks never arrived. The waiters were over worked, they looked knackered. Service was very slow. So disappointing as it could be amazing. Would not recommend.

Fast service, good food and gentle staff! Absolutely a place to have dinner in the island. Had both fish and meat and were both above expectations. Nice view on the sea too!

It may be a little more pricey than elsewhere but don't let that put you off. This was the best restaurant we went to. The service was quick and there is real value for money with the quality of food they serve here!

Staff were very rude, my partner had the Nasi Gorang that didn't even taste like it at all even though its one of my favourite dishes. I had the seafood lover selection seafood was overlooked and uneatable, part of the main came after finishing the meal. When paying cashier was on the phone the whole time. Looks great but would not recommend at all. There are other places in koh tao that have been fantastic! I had advised the staff and didn't seem to care as they we understaffed.
