“The best of the best restaurant in Samui!! And may be of Thailand!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We have been in this restaurant many times during our holydays. We have been visiting Thailand for 3 months and passed in Koh Samui 3 times escaping from the bad weather of other places ;(. Italian cuisine is always the best, but when it is also served with passion and kindness and with nice people that like to talk and enjoying the company ...it is always a moment to remember forever. Compliments for the big prawns and clams spaghetti ....always served with nice wine ( the only good European wine you can find in Thai ) and laught and smiles !! It as relaxing as romantic as funny. I really recommend this restaurant !!! Excellent!!!

“Stunning”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

After struggling to find a good place to eat in Lamar I decided to look at Trip advisor and this place was top.
I mentioned it to my boyfriend and we went to have a look.
Like a few reviews said it was closed but there was a sign that CLEARLY stated the opening times, and also a reservation number, so we came back after opening hours (18:00) without a reservation and got a table easily.

The setting was romantic, candle lit, bamboo interior and reggae music.
The staff were lovely and it was great having the chef come out to ask us if our meal was ok... great touch!
We opted for the italian food as we have been in Thailand for 7 months although we saw some Thai food come out it looked great and our dishes were excellent: carbonara & tuna, tomatoes pasta.
We also got a complementary bowl of good bread, again another great touch!

Go Here! It is an evening place and they do have a number for reservations so maybe be on the safe side and book but we didn't need to.

Our two meals plus two small Leo cost under 650bht... well worth it!

“Very good restaurant!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

We had dinner here during our week in Samui. We loved this place. The restaurant is small and cozy. The Thai food very tasty. We didn't try the Italian menu. It's a very good value for money. We recommend this place

“My Best Meal at Samui”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We have visited this place this Feb. and dinning here is one of my best memories for Samui. Michael is a very kind and considerate host, and Son is a very talented cook. Under Michael's advice, we ordered a roasted shrimps a day in advance (the shrimp is fresh from market, so you have to order that one day before). The roasted shrimps tasted far better than I expected, the shell is crisp with tender flesh inside soaked with oil and ingredients (they told me that the shrimps is roasted in a traditional Thai way).

Wish Michael and Son all the best in the future! I will definitely pay you a visit if I go to Samui again.

“Shut when we attempted visit”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Restaurant shut when we went to it on Mon, also went past last night (Fri 8th aug). There was a sign but unsure what it said. We were really disappointed as we were looking forward to it due to the reviews. Advice: check open before visit.
