If you are in Samui and not in the mood for Thai food, this is the place to eat. A little on the $$$ side, but the food is excellent and inventive. Service is wonderful.

A little bit more up market but a beautiful place to enjoy a meal or just a drink. Excellent band each night. Great atmosphere

If you like good food, do not go to the Red Snapper. If you like chef's who for some reason think they can cook well, and do very cheffy and experimental food with none of the skill, knock yourself out. Pros: makes a change to get a wine list in Chaweng. Service was attentive, friendly, polite. The 3 dips that come with the bread were good. Cons: bloody awful food. There's a reason you don't put sashimi salmon with strong olives and fesh mango. It mings. Despite the place having aircon (another pro!) the salad bar was Mosquitoville. The live band were playing so loudly that we spent the night shouting at each other over the strains of Chinese Bob Marley. Carumba. Despite finding amusement in the whole Fawlty Towers nature of the evening, I'll chose the Green Bird every time. About a tenth of the price for ten times nicer food. No-brainer.

Dear Kate A,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Red Snapper Restaurant, we were saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your time with us and for that we apologize. Our primary concern with your review was to seek understanding: it is clear that you enjoyed many aspects of Red Snapper, including service and atmosphere, and that your displeasure with the food seems to be based solely upon your own personal taste.

This forum, despite its many advantages, has now become a platform for biased and unfounded opinions, as it is clearly the case with your review. Allow us now to give you the same scrutiny. In order to disprove your arguments, there is no need to venture much further than a few reviews before yours to see that your dislike is but a matter of taste buds. While I am not an expert on the matter, I assure you our Chef is and his dishes are enjoyed by hundreds of other patrons every week.

Although you are entitled to your opinions, writing a negative review is only a last resort if your issue had already been brought to our attention. However, such was not the case and to this day we are unable to read minds. May we recommend you coming forth and saying something next time a dish fails to suit your palate. I am quite positive that any restaurant will gladly rectify it.

Last but not least, we can only smile at the absurdity in the aberrant comparison with Green Bird restaurant. In effect, there is nothing terrible about posting negative reviews, as long as it is done responsibly. Most readers fortunately know how to react to demeaning and baseless reviews.

Thank you again for your comments.
With Regards,

Daniel G. Fuchs
Group General Manager
