“OK but nothing extraordinary”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

Canadian owner who cooks the western style food with his wife cooking the Thai food. The setting is quite nice. Two of us had pork that was way overlooked. Really nice veggies though. 3had ribs with mixed reviews however overall they all liked their dish. The food was average and definitely eatable but won't head back during my stay here.

“Great food”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Just had a great meal. We had really tasted ribs but we were shocked with the price of the drinks. Double the price of the same drink at the beach bars. For that we won't return!

“Great food hidden away”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Very nice little restaurant., The owners hospitality is amazing and the food great. I had the signature ribs. They were cooked to perfection but the BBQ sauce was a little overpowering. But overall a great dish.

Can highly recommend the place. If you wants to go there look carefully as it can be a little hard to find.

“Excellent cooking, fantastic food!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Possibly the best restaurant in Ko Samet, great place, great owners but best of all - fantastic food at reasonable prices.

I had Pork Tenderloin, which was served with mash potato and a fresh salad with raisins which was absolutely amazing; the price was a very reasonable THB220 (apprx GBP5), and was great food, and filling too!

The place is very well made, with tables and sofas as you prefer and a couple of outside tables, great purple 'soft' ceiling and music from the sixties - in my opinion definitely worth it, try it!

I'll go back again to try their famous ribs...

“The best place to stay and eat on Samet”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This is by far the best western food on Samet and the rooms are clean and very reasonably priced a/c or fan. Roger and Noot run a excellent restaurant with a warm ambient atmosphere. Again all the reviews about the ribs, pork loin and Thai food are spot on. I will stay here again, but they only have 3 rooms so its luck of the draw, but the food is always of the highest standard. I try always look in the bathroom of a restaurant as this is a good measuring stick as to the cleanliness of the establishment and im pretty sure you can eat of the floor in Rogers kitchen. Over all a great place to eat or stay, Thank you Roger,Noot and little Jenadao.
