Good food but a little expensive. Staff were really helpful as we had two young children but it was much more expensive than I thought it would be.

We love this Cafe! Every time we come to Koh Samui we make sure we visit. The views of course are second to none but the food, wine, cocktails and service are perfect!

Nice setting, but a bit strange as there is bared wire around the garden areas, certainly not safe if you had small children with you. A bit on the expensive side, for what is offered.

This restaurant offers delicious food at a great location. Overlooking the sea at the end of the day isn't too bad! Really great amazing! But it's a bit pricey and not large portions (we're used to larger portions). So for what you get I think it's a bit too expensive, comparing to Orgasmic which is a few hundred meters further...

Outstanding service from friendly and attentive staff! Well presented and extremely tasty food; different to usual Thai. Definitely worth a first and second visit.

My husband tried the lamb burger and said it was the best one he's ever had! I had the fish burger (really good Sea bass) and it was fantastic. The presentation of every dish helps you love the food even more. Very friendly staff as well. Highly recommended!
