Fantastic seafood restaurant. Really fresh and wide selection if seafood. Price was much more reasonable than the restaurant at the hotel I am staying. Very friendly waiters and good English spoken. The recommended steamed Thai style fish was one of the best I've ever had. We're planing to return again soon!

The restaurant is right on the beach, great and romantic atmosphere at night.
The food was OK, didn't fall off my feet as oppose to the price.
Not too pricy but more than average for Thailand.

Located by the beach this restaurant has a nice feeling and atmosphere to it, especially at night when they put their tables directly on the beach (for a romantic candelight dinner). It offers a large variety of dishes, from fresh seafood to western food (burgers, pizza etc.) this should suit everyone. We liked the fact that you can select live seafood yourself from their aquariums before they're cooked! Can't beat that in terms of freshness. What's more, the food is actually well prepared and cooked with delicious sauces (that seabass ... yummm). To top it all the staff is nice and patient even with demanding customers like us. Oh and I almost forgot mentionning that the prices are very reasonable, great value in my opinion. The only grief I have is that they don't have a good selection of desserts (you'd expect to see ice creams/sorberts) but that's really not a big deal. We've already had two dinners there and will be having a 3rd and 4th one soon.

Had a great Blue Crab Thai Curry; lovely flavours and of course eating is more fun when you have to play with the food!
From the road, this place only gives the impression of doing seafood, due to the numerous tanks containing: shrimp; snapper; grouper; various crabs - including horseshoe crab (though only the eggs of these weird creatures are eaten). However the menu very wide ranging: seafood; general Thai cuisine; European and the ubiquitous burger. There is something for everyone in your group.
The lovely seating area is a long way back from the road right on the beach front. So you get the sights and sounds of the sea thrown in too! Delightful!

Had excellent meal here last night with husband and son. Service was very attentive but not intrusive. My Bangrak basket of fried giant prawns, squid and fish was delicious. My son had the stir fried prawns with garlic -- another winner! Husband enjoyed his crab in curry sauce. Nice cocktails too. View along beach was lovely and there was live music on Saturday too, which added to the great atmosphere. Total bill for 3 including a couple of drinks apiece came to under 2,000 baht, but you could eat much more cheaply if you go for meat dishes. Would go back if we were staying longer on Samui!
