Nice wooden deck to hang out on, but the food was the worst so far in Koh Tao. Had a cheeseburger, patty was totally raw except for the charred outer layer, compact bun weighed around half a kilo and tasted super stale. My wife had the most boring Tom Kha in Thailand since 2008, tasted like somebody had cut a coconut in half and boiled it, period. No lemongrass, no galangal or other spices just completely bland taste of coconut water. I'd give it a 4- for atmosphere and 1 for food.

Good food, location is just perfect, high price, staff are average.
Better going for lunch than dinner.

We enjoyed several meals here, relaxing on the water. The staff was always friendly, and the food was good, but the atmosphere and view were what kept us coming back. Prices and food were both comparable or better than those without a view of the bay.

If you have a long hollydays in Thailand and want to brake the Thai food routine, why not to eat a very nice pizza in a very nice beach restaurant? As a vegetarian I could try the vegetarian and margherita pizzas and I tell you the vegetarian was superb... Nice music, nice atmosphere, friendly staff... Try to get there maximun at 8pm to get a table...

Service was great, food was delicious and the prices were decent compared to some parts of the island. The view is worth it in itself!
