“Tasty”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

Came here based on good reviews on trip advisor, I must say I was not disappointed.

It was very busy Saturday night but the staff coped well. The menu is of a good standard. I went the whole hog with garlic shrimp to start / seared tuna / baileys & raspberry cheesecake. Each course delicious, tasty & fresh. My partner equally enthused over his chosen grub of BBQ ribs.

I must also concur about the passion fruit mojitos!

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

My wife and I ordered the tuna bruschetta and the pan fried barracuda with the cream sauce. Both were excellent. The tuna was fresh and was mixed with a good balance of soy sauce, ginger and sesame. I personally would have some wasabi on it, but its only my preference. We then had the barruda, the fish was flaky and moist, the cream sauce was a nice compliment, and the potatoes were excellent. Add some pashion fruit mojitoes, you got a great meal. I am coming back when I go back to Koh Tao.

“Good value and tasty food”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

The food is great, the entire menu is perfect and you have plenty of choice. The staff are great, perfect English skills and friendly. We had an awesome dinner...good food, not so bad wine and good service. The owner is nice but a bit bored now with the socialising part. Better he steps back and let's his staff deal with guests. He comes across very robotic.understandable if he's Been doing this for many years. All in all great experience in one of the best restaurants on the island. Definitely better than all in the top 5. Must give it a try.
