“The best we had on Samui and nice airconditioning too”
Reviewed February 15, 2010

We ate at several of the restaurants on Samui that the guidebooks describe as "upmarket" and this was definately the best food we had. There is lots more than just fish on the menu. Service was good and the airconditioning, a rarity in Samui restaurants, was merciful. The heat and humidity at other streetside restaurants usually killed our appetites but here we could really tuck in.

“What a great lunch”
Reviewed January 10, 2010

Had a light lunch here. It was conveniently located on the main road in Chaweng. The atmosphere was great and the food was very good. I wanted to go back, but there are just so many places to pick from on that road.

“A good catch in the main street”
Reviewed January 9, 2010

The restaurant s very visually appealing - with plenty to distract you from the fact that you are on the main road. The food is all well presented - if not a bit "over worked"; however it is all very tasty. the menu is certainly different than the usual suspects - I had the Smoked Duck Vietnamese Spring Rolls and the Catch of the Day (with sauce/bouillabaisse).

The people sat at an adjacent table had one of the steaks - which are accompanied with a salad bar which evidently is very good. The steak cam with reasonable praise.

Not cheap - then good things aren't. It will cost you about 700-1000 baht (+ 7% tax and service) for food only.

“A fairly good restaurant in a tatty part of Thailand”
Reviewed January 4, 2010

Made the mistake of spending an evening in Chaweng. Could be in any busy street in the world made up of American fast food chains!

Searched around a bit and decided this looked the best in the area... and it probably was!

Food was fairly good but service was poor. Pricey too for what it was. Lacked atmosphere felt like a chain restaurant like pizza express (but could have been worse like pizza hut!)

Would eat here again only because the rest of the restaurants in the area looked worse!
