“A great place to dine in Chaweng”

I was excited to give this restaurant a go while in Samui...& I wasn't disappointed. I had the Rock Lobster Fetuccine which was one of the chefs recommendations. What a treat! The lobster was delicious & the various flavours in the dish a great blend especially the dill. The service is exceptional & the live Latino band was a pleasant surprise in Samui.

“delicious food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

We had an excellent meal here. Atmosphere is upmarket, modern decor with a good vibe. The menu has a good variety with something to suit every taste. Very good selection of both wines and cocktails. The service was outstanding, catering to every need. Highly recommended, and easy to find on the main street.

“Amazing live band!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We were on our way back to our hotel late one night, went past the bar and thought the music was quite good. Went in, had some wines and few JD & cokes, we were both pleasantly surprised by the band that was playing there. Now...ive seen lots of bands and i've done festivals (uk) but these guys were so amazing!!! I requested a Bob Marley song, someone else requested Stand By You by the Pretenders and the band smashed it!! Truely talented. The only shame is that it was the last night of out holiday....wish we had discovered this bar sooner!
If i have the money I would fly them to England and play at my wedding!!

“A bit overpriced but overall a great experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

Excellent food, big dishes, top notch service and unique atmosphere turn it to a great evening. However we think that the prices are a bit on top of the scale for that type of restaurant. we will be back.

Dear Assaf M,

Thank you for the great review and also for taking the time to write the review. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the evening with us, the food, atmosphere and service. It brings up a big smile in all of us. I am just very curious what the trigger was that made it feel too expensive, since feedback is key to improvement. I have looked in to this together with our chef and Bar Guru to identify trends and improvement in value so that upon your next visit there wont be a trigger.

Once again a big thank you from the whole Red Snapper team and best regards,

“Excellent experience”

We have visited this restaurant during "Samui fine dining" festival. We had 7-course set menu and everything was really good. We only was not satisfied with the recommended wines. In the restaurant was also live music,very pleasant.

First of all thank you for the splendid review. It is great to hear that you enjoyed our festival menu, especially our Chef is flattered by your response. I have to apologize if the wine matching did not meet your expectations. As per your next visit, we will try our best to find the perfect wine combination and match upon your demand.

Therefore I hope that it will not pass too much time until we can do so and welcome you back here with us at Red Snapper again.
