“Great food and service amidst amazing surroundings”
Reviewed 18 June 2011

Myself and two friends visited Beach Republic during early June, we found the food and service amazing, the surroundings are spectacular. The tapas menu is great, serving a whole range of tasty treats. The main menu is also brilliant, we all had the steak and all said it was the one of the best steaks we had ever had! I would recommend the place to everyone who plans on visiting Koh Samui. The “Sunday Session” is a must!

“Overrated, bad service”
Reviewed 4 June 2011

When we first got to Beach Republic, there were lots of empty sunbeds so we took some. A completely unprepared and impolite waitress came almost shouting at us saying those chairs were for hotel guests. After some discussion and calling someone who could actually understand us, we managed to sort things out.

Once we were properly settled, the DJ started playing good music (which didn't seem to excite people too much), the swimming pool was not too crowded and we paid for the food buffet, but no one told us it was only opened until 5pm. So when we started to get hungry, just at 5, there was no food left, which was very disappointing.

The venue itself is not too bad

“Over hyped and under delivered”
Reviewed 26 April 2011

We went to Beach Republic expecting a wow factor and amazing food. The night we went the place was only half lit so it looked dingy, the sun lounges were still all covered in towels and the staff were less than helpful. The staff thing you actually expect in koh samui and usually the surrounds more than make up for it, but this was a total let down. The food was average to say the most. We stuck to Thai cuisine and had some tapas which were unseasoned and quite bland. The crab dumplings were nice but covered in a cheesey sauce...just wasnt quite right for the weather. The food was ok just nothing that the hype leads you to expect. There are so many amazing restaurants on this island that i wouldnt waste a valuable meal experience here.

“Amazing Sunday Brunch and Also Great Tapas”
Reviewed 31 January 2011

I spent 3 days at this resort and only left it once for a dinner out in town. I thought the food was very good, in particular, the Sunday brunch was amazing with a great a choice of different foods. The place was busy with people from outside and inside the resort who go there for this special Sunday treat. Apart from that, I experienced many dishes in their tapas menu which were all very good, tasty and very reasonably priced. The service was excellent and the staff extremelly kind. I met the chef, an English guy who was most accommodating. The eating area is very pleasant and I highly recommend this place.
