My wife and I stayed on Maenam Beach for 8 nights and we had dinner here 7 times. The food and drinks are everything you would expect and the lady chef regularly comes out to say hello, take your order and check everything is ok. The real plus is the atmosphere - feet in the sand, great music, Jook the waiter, a real cosmopolitan mix of people - unpretentious, excellent value and genuine friendly service. Just fantastic.

Great little place on the beach at Maenam.

We visited Chill out Cafe several times during our stay in Maenam. The staff are friendly and the food excellent.

We firstly went here for lunch - the chicken satay was tender and juicy, the spring rolls some of the best I've had in Thailand, and the fruit shakes fruity and refreshing.

Because of our good experience here, we came back another night for cocktails and dinner. During happy hour we sampled several cocktails on the menu, and they were both tasty and not lacking in alcohol! The evening meal also matched up the the quality of the lunch we'd had there!

We found this place to be good for all food offered. Prices are reasonable and staff are friendly. Super location on the beach. Since we were staying next door at Hacienda it was the perfect place for us. Great Thai menu and also western food and beer and wine and a range of cocktails.

Visited the Chill Out Cafe for a late lunch when the cafe was half full, and ordered 2 sandwiches and 2 burgers. The beach side location is great, with a relaxed vibe and music. However after waiting for an hour for our food to be delivered (with little explanation or apology from the staff), we were not feeling so chilled out with our 2 young children in tow.
Food was fine and reasonably priced, but until they sort out their service levels and attitude I would avoid.

We were insane enough to visit this place twice.

The first time, we had ordered one of the set breakfasts and not all the items on the menu were on the plate and we had to ask repeatedly for some of them to be brought out - but only the missing coffee came and it was charged extra on the bill! The service was slow and the food was cold. He couldn't even get toast right. We like dogs, but the owner's two dogs were playing quite forcefully around the restaurant which could be disturbing for some.

The second time, there were also menu items missing from our dishes and we ordered croissant but instead were served half-toasted toast with a grunt, "croissant no have". The service was again lazy, the food cold and low in quality. Some of these dishes I had previously thought were impossible to get wrong and I will not forget the food I ate here. The dogs were also quite lively this time too. I would never go here again.

If you face the sea and walk along the beach to the right for a couple hundred meters, you will come across Zenzibar, one of the top rated restaurants on Koh Samui...
