We visited here last night for our wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint!! Very good European food (there are Thai options also) with an amazing wine list. The degustation or tasting menus sounded lovely but due to not being amazingly hungry we opted for two courses. An amuse-bouche popped out which was simply called duck and egg. Really lovely mini duck croquette and a quail egg with a tasty jus.
My wife opted for the crab risotto to start which was like velvet with black truffle oil and crab beignets, tip top!
I went for a dish just called asparagus, which consisted of the basic ham, Parmesan, poached egg and of course asparagus! Very beautifully presented and highly tasty.
Main course I chose 'all about the pork' basically pork cooked three ways. A pig cheek croquette, expertly done slow roast belly with sticky skin and a big tenderloin all with a rosemary jus, apple pieces and roast fennel I believe (on my 4th cocktail so got a bit hazy). Very artistically presented and tasted spot on.
My better half had the sea bass. I did try a bit of it which was lovely! It consisted of veal sausage slices, pickled shallots, celeriac cooked two ways, red wine sauce and a beautiful fresh fillet of sea bass. Again looked the part and tasted great!!
We also ordered some potato croquettes which where stunning they came with a pot of meaty jus or reduction of some description whatever it was, 100% delicious!
Cost is relatively high 400-1000 baht a main or 2000 for a tasting menu. Wine slightly over priced I thought but great selection although we stuck to martini's and caipirinha's. The location is spot on, the restaurant is located near the beach front with a lovely pool and nice decor.
The only thing I would say is it lacks fans. I KNOW it's petty and minor when you have a sea breeze and it is samui in April but when eating such delicious food I would have preferred to be a little cooler.
As my last statement is very silly/almost stupid but I personally think it would of helped the overall experience, but this place is a MUST try!!!
Defiantly going to pop back within the next 2 wks of our stay.
The resort looks amazing also.
