We went diner with my girls, looking for a good restaurant in Koh Tao and we saw this one recommended by tripadvisor and we were really grateful!
The place is ok, not as nice as other places in Koh tao (no seaview) but I had to say the food was excellent, the wine too. We had double chocolate tart for desert that was absolutely marvelous.
The price was a little bit more expensive than other places in koh tao (around 15E) but for special occasion it is highly recommended! i would definitely go back.

If you like seafood, this is the place to come. Great vibe, good service and food to die for; all at very fair and affordable prices. We wanted most things on the menu, so went for the seafood platter which covered most of the seafood on the menu. It tasted great and we are still thinking about it now. Mmmm....!!

10/10 for food. Horrible toilets though. If they get this sorted then I'd give 10/10 for whole restaurant!

Ate here last night after drooling over the menu for a week while wandering Sairee's streets. Maybe my brain had set up all kinds of expectations but my wife and I were really disappointed. Had whole snapper and a barracuda fillet done in a creamy thai fusion basil sauce. First the food took an incredibly long time to arrive (around 45 mins) and came after other tables that arrived after us had already received their's. The whole snapper (or was it really snapper?) was OK - not too much flavour - basically a steamed fish with shredded ginger thrown on top. A standard thai chili sauce accompanied on the side which was tasty but seemed to be an afterthought. Overall it was just a bit boring. The barracuda filet was overcooked and the basil cream sauce was just way too rich - it completely masked the flavour of what is normally a very tasty fish. Normally my wife and I have no trouble with food - and definitely not spicy food in Thailand - but this gave us both heartburn.
Lastly I must say the service was a little off - 4 or 5 people working the tables (including the owner?) but a lot of standing around going on. The owner was eating (food from somewhere else) and kept forgetting to prepare our check.
Oh well, we'll go back to The Gallery for our next nice meal.

i bloody loved this place , without a doubt the best restraunt on the island.

how can i put it - i was there a month and went once a week even after id promised to never go the same restraunt twice .

portions are massive and as a sterotypical scotsman who tends to advoid his veggies the fact i even licked the salad bowl clean tells you how good it was.

the pan fried barracuda with roast potatoes and king prawns was my favourite out of all the times i went .
