We were really excited by the reviews and the menu, but weren't blow away. The food was definitely good, though I think the "All-In Fish Platter" for 2+ is not the way to go. The Barracuda cakes were good, salty (which we like) and different, but the snapper and shellfish was overcooked and nearly flavorless. I think some of their other dishes sound more promising and would have loved to have time to give this place another try. The tuna bruschetta sashimi was yummy, especially without the bread. Fun drinks too.

I really got lucky with this restaurant. I meant to go somewhere else and ended up here as a second option...I'm so glad I did.

I've been living in Thailand for just over a year and this was the best meal I've had so far. The chocolate tart I ordered for dessert was the best I've ever had.

It's pricy so it might be out of the range of a backpacker budget but if you love good food you MUST visit this restaurant on Koh Tao.

If you are not traveling on a backpackers budget, you MUST eat here. You will not go wrong if you order the Tuna Sashimi and the Seafood platter for two. Tons of food, freshly made and very good. the prices here are high for a Thai Island but the quality of the food and service make it worthwhile. They require a reservation which I don't understand since there were tons of open tables when we were there but we made our reservation 24 hours earlier with no issue.
