We stayed at the Sheraton Resort just down the beach from this place. The food is fine and the location is pretty damn good. Service-wise the team are pretty attentive and to be honest, whilst its not top-notch food, it is absolutely fine and reasonable priced. Worth a visit for some variety and also a stunning location.

This place was incredible, after reading a lot of negative reviews me and my partner were hesitate to try it out but non the less we decided to give it a go, and it was incredible. Food was very nice, service was excellent, they even surprised us by having our dinner on the beach. Would definitely return again

My partner and I had dinner here last night, the service was wonderful and they sat us on the sand in a heart of fairy lights. The food was fantastic, we couldn't fault the place for the money that we paid. We will certainly be back during our stay

The location was fine, on the nice beach of Chaweng Noi. Awfull service and really bad food. Arguably overpriced for what is is though .Don’t go there ! A mark of 0/5 should reflect our real feeling about this bad place .

Bistro Samui is fine for a quick snack or lunch. Food was OK and the staff were quite friendly. Arguably overpriced for what is is though. Not anything spectacular but I don't think it's claiming to be anything but a fairly basic eatery on the beach.

I am no expert in Thai Cuisine, but what they serve was far from what I imagine what Thai food should be. The location was fine, but so are the others which located along the road. Nothing stands out.....

The venue is the highlight of this place and while the food we ordered was quite tasty, unfortunately it is the service that lets this place down. We were the only ones that were having lunch here and they couldn't even be bothered to greet us when we arrived, each time we asked for something it was an effort as... More

The place first looks interesting because the prices are reasonable and the setting is directly on the beach, but do not eat there, it is the worst experience we have had in Samui during our 7 days stay. We were a group of 7 young people, not demanding and pretty easy-going, and we were the ONLY table during our entire... More

The venue if the highlight. The food is secondary.The venue used to the home of old fashioned cheap Thai resturants with BBQ seafood at bargain prices. The place has changed hands and tried to go upmarket. I think it has lost its allure. On th eother hand, the venue is so good that you could serve stale bread and people... More
