Now renamed Koh Tao Leisure Park, don't let that detract from the fact that this as actually one of the best restaurants on the island. I have spent over 12 months on Koh Tao and know the standard of cuisine to expect - the good and the bad.
This establishment is owned and managed by Steve, an English ex-pat who is one of the longest ex-pat residents on the island and has seen it develop from a tropical backwater without electricity, to what it has now become. The one thing Steve has is knowledge to get what he wants, and this is evident in the unique menu that if offered throughout. If you want English sausages and mash, you will get it. If you want a variety of Mexican delights, again, it is readily available, and I challenge anyone to eat the mixed grill on their own. Sunday roast is also an appreciated addition to the menu, but you will have to book in advance for this treat. Not to mention the homemade pizzas, which are the best I have tasted, and I do not say such things lightly.
The menu here is constantly changing and Steve really takes account of his customer's wishes. I recall making an off-hand comment about having Crumble on the menu, and a couple of weeks later - there it was, and still is to this day.
I cannot finish without mentioning the dessert menu. An impressive selection of ice creams, cheesecake, a magnificent banana split and the famous "Outragous" at easily over 5000 calories, and designed for sharing!
The "Hacienda" is one of the things I miss about not being on Koh Tao, and you would have regularly found me there with friends and work colleagues during the "happiness hours" sampling the cheapest drinks and cocktails on the island. All this with activities such as mini-golf and bowling to avail of, should you wish.
A friendly environment with great food, and inexpensive drink, I have spent many a happy evening there, and recommend you do the same., Well done Steve, and i hope to return one day soon.
