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.

Loved the food and lively atmosphere here for a family meal, great location off on of the main streets in Koh Tao close to the pier. Food was excellent, we enjoyed fresh pasta and fish. Highly recommend!

Excellent food, we went here twice and each time the food, drinks and service were excellent. They offer take aways too, in our opinion the food here was some of the best in this area (western food) recommend.

Cafe del Sol is our favourite restaurant in Koh Tao, partly because it is located very close to our favourite hotel, Montra, but also because we like the atmosphere and food. It had now been 5 long years since our last visit, but we were...happy to find the place exactly as we remembered it. Stayed in Koh Tao 12 days this time, end visited Cafe del Sol almost every day, usually for breakfast/lunch but also for dinner. Omelettes, eggs, breakfast selections very tasty, coffee (Latte / Cappucino) also very good, fruit shakes very tasty. Last night we also had a steak, which was surprisingly good to find in Thailand. Grilled, tender, tasty. Desserts also top notch. Very friendly staff and owners, will be back :-)More

After having traveled Thailand for 5 weeks and enjoying the excellent Thai food everywhere we decided on this restaurant for our last dinner in this wonderful country. I have tried some western food here and there over the last few weeks but here I finally...had a real steak. The pepper sauce was perfect as was the steak. Sure , it’s a little bit more expensive then what you are used too in this country . But what do you expect on a dream location where there are no cows? Pizza and vegan burger were great too ,my group told me.More

Enjoyed a nice dinner here and also stopped off for coffee once. One thing to note is to ask what brand of gin they were serving as they gave me something quite undrinkable, wish I'd asked first.

We found this Cafe in Koh Tao , we originally went for coffee and ended having lunch. I had the vegan spaghetti and it was the best vegan spaghetti I have ever eaten. Even home in Australia we can't get alot of vegan spaghetti and...I enjoy eating pasta. I can't have gluten or dairy so I am limited to what I eat which can be difficult while travelling especially Thailand. So would definitely recommend this Cafe and we will return to eat here before leaving Koh Tao.More

Really pleasant place. Good menu for Western food. High quality ingredients with no scrimping. Thai food overpriced for small portions, but that this the standard complaint for many restaurants aimed at Westerners.

We have ordered twice from the restaurant to our villas as a matter of convenience (we lived up on the hillside and had no transportation). Having a nice story behind the restaurant actually made the food even more disappointing as we were expecting a touch...of italian culinary experience. The panini was tasteless, the salad dressing plain bad, and the fries old and cold each time. Prices are really high for a below average quality food. You can find a much nicer meal on Koh Tao for a comparable budget.More

We ate here twice and ordered to our villa twice also. The food was great, but it was the staff that kept us coming back. We normally don’t eat off the beach on the island, but Khun Nay and the boys remembered our kids names...and our orders and how many sharks they saw yesterday etc etc. we just felt at home there. We are Thai food, grilled and pasta, all was way above average for the island. We will eat our first meal there on our next visit! Miss you already!More

Perfect place to enjoy a pizza , pastas , a steak or even a breakfast with fresh juices , croissant and more pastries... I even try the sandwiches and the homemade bread was better than many places in Bangkok. Price is also very reasonable. Definitely...recommended if you are going to the island.More
