Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had an excellent meal here. The restaurant is very elegant and the food is excellent quality. There were six of us so we saw lots of different dishes. Everything was good quality and we cleared our plates. There is a good choice of items...on the menu and the staff were very friendly and helpful.More

Not sure how we’ve missed this place on our visits – really glad we took the plunge this time. Slightly off the beaten track, buzzy atmosphere, place was full when we came. Food and wine were great, service exceptional. More choice on the menu than...we expected. On our list of ‘must do’s’ for next time.More

For entree I ate carpaccio de boeuf. Main dish - flank steak. Dessert - cream brolee. All the food was very well made and delicious. Seasoning of the was delicate and precise. I recommend to ask that the steak will be medium rare.

Last night we checked out a very lovely restaurant tucked away in the backstreets of Bophut, Koh Samui. All courses were delicious and extremely well priced. We were really looking forward to a good bottle of red and some delicious French food. We were not...disappointed. The snails (imported) with garlic butter and parsley, goats cheese salad drizzled in honey, and the Wagyu prime rib were all so good. We finished with creme brulee to share, as we were so full. The staff were also the stars of the evening, giving us such good service, they were amazing, they even helped us to get to the ATM after dinner to get some money out, as it's cash or QR code payment. I did read about that payment method prior to booking but totally forgot about. We are almost tempted to go back tonight for their beef set menu...More

Wonderful restaurant. The owner Valerie was lovely. The staff was great. The food was excellent. We had a nice bottle of Bordeaux with the food. We had the fillet and the Cote the boeuf. This is a must visit for anyone living in koh samui...or is visiting. Thanks again Valerie for the wonderful evening!More

We went to La Cote de Boeuf in August and made the choice based on the many good reviews in TA. We where not disappointed and so happy that we tried this wonderful place. The atmosphere is very charming and inviting, the owner is a...great host and did exceptional well guiding us through the menu and wine list. All her recommendations where spot on, one of the best beef qualities we ever had and all the great comments about it here on TA are true. We selected a wine from the menu and the owner recommended us another one at a lower price at a higher quality. We where so impressed and will be back for sure as this place is so worthwhile to visit if you want to spend a wonderful evening. We where also very surprised about the menu prices, this place is not pricy at all and offers great value for your money. Dont' think twice and don't miss it out, try it!!More

A person who travels to Asia from London United Kingdom, from time to time I want the best Steak Restaurant fitted close to Hawksmoor back in London. Wouldn’t fit the bill like La Cote De Beouf. Though, the location is off the busy strips in...Samui, it is definitely a secret hidden gem. Highly recommended forget about Gaucho on Fisherman Village. I have been back to this restaurant for the 6th times over the past 3 years.More

Another super meal. We have eaten here on our visits to Koh Samui in 2018 and 2019 - so we made a reservation for our first night this time . We were not disappointed. The ambience is great- with a much larger and relaxed bar...area. The food was perfect with a fillet steak cooked to perfection. Thanks to all for a brilliant meal- we will return before we go homeMore

Three times we went to the Côte de Boeuf, if we can not say that we were badly received with regard to the dishes, there, on the other hand it was a great disappointment, far from what we had been told ... I always wonder...for those who judge this restaurant as an excellent restaurant if they are simply lucky, and we are not, or unfortunately as often their only standard of quality is only the quantity served in their plate ??? Sorry but I will not recommend this restaurant as one of the best on the island !! On this, the best way to make sure, is at least to go there once ... maybe you will be one of the lucky ones !!! ??? Well, so good luckMore

I was last about a year ago. We tried a few days ago without reservation and could not get in because it was absolutely full! We booked then for a couple of days later and again it was full on that day! Maybe we were...a bit unlucky with our food choices this time? The ladies had the goat cheese salad and the snails which both were very good. My friend and I had the chicken liver salad which was not bad but we thought slightly overcooked?! For mains my wife had the fish soup. Again, maybe a little unsure what to expect? It was just a fish broth with some toasted bread slices and some home made rouille and not as sweet as a bisque! My friend had the Sweetbread and was very happy with it! The two servings of Entrecôte were very big BUT quite tough! The cut was also a lot thicker than what we had previously. Mentioning this, an allowance was made! The deserts were excellent and with the rum Baba they always leave the bottle of rum on your table to help yourself, which we did! We also consumed 3 bottles of wine, which were excellent! Service very friendly and nice atmosphere! Easy parking!More
