Whitening is probably one of the most romantic restaurants on Koh Tao. The food is a little on the expensive side but it is presented elegantly and it is prepared to appease the palate. Definitely worth going but you will find the staff trying to push you to eat rapidly so they can turn the table over. With a polite "no" just tell them you haven't finished every time they come around to take your plate that still has food. Also, do make a reservation before going to the restaurant. One very annoying problem with the restaurant; the utensils are small. They look and feel like a set of utensils from a little kids toy kitchen.

I highly recommend their spaghetti carbonarra or their seafood. We had a wonderfull dinner at the Beach overlooking the sea. The service was very good.

Great and simple thai food is served in a beautiful restaurant on the beach (tables are on the sand). It's an amazing place for a romantic dinner or a big table with many friends. The restaurant's design is simple but yet beautiful and the food menu will please everyone as the list of dishes is very long. The fish a la plancha is a great choice.
Prices are higher than other restraurants but the food is better and the check is still very very coorect.

Just great food with your feet in the sand. Lovely setting and great service. Different from other restaurants with a nice mix of thai and western food. Would go back on my next visits

I was in koh Tao for 3 nights and I went to Whitening 2 times. It says a lot! It is the best place, in my opinion, for a romantic dinner (ask for a front side table) or a group dinner (ask for the long sofa). The dishes are simply amazing and also the cocktails. They have a large menu specializing in Thai dishes and grilled meats and seafood.
Favorite dishes: T-bone (400 baht) and seafood with coconut (390 baht - don't remember the name)
