We went here on our last night on koh tao. The free pick up and drop off was very welcome as it's a little out of the way. The food was wonderful, the view is very impressive and there was a great cocktail and wine list. Highly recommended!

What a great spot with vistas over the bay over to Freedom beach and down to Sairee beach on the left. Perfect during the day to relax on the well manicured grass lawn with a cocktail (or two) and go for a swim on the nearby mini sandy bay when you get too hot. At night watch the lights twinkle in the bay whilst sampling the cuisine (it's a romantic spot). Local Thai dishes and seafood are beautifully presented and according to my Thai friends are as close to the original as you can possibly get. The mini Wagyu beef burgers with blue cheese and crispy curly fries are a must - you will not be disappointed. It's well worth the journey over the hill to get there, you'll be back for more so don't leave it until your last night!

Put simply the food at Viewpoint is amazing, I couldn't fault it at all. It may not be the cheapest meal you'l have on Koh Tao, but will likely be the best quality, which makes it totally worth it in my book. Actually for what we got, I couldn't quibble the price at all. So often these days new 'boutique' or 'fine dining' restaurants opening up, and disappointingly the only thing 'fine' about them tends to be the price and the view! This is NOT one of those restaurants however. I have no problem paying slightly higher prices for genuinely fine food, and this is exactly what Viewpoint provided me.

The drinks were also very fairly priced, with a range of yummy cocktails and a good wine selection, as well as spirits and local beers. The service was also excellent. The staff were friendly, welcoming, and quick to attend to our needs. One of them even jumped on his bike and followed our taxi half way to Chalok as I had stupidly left my keys hanging on the back of a chair (thank you, much appreciated!).

Tip: Definitely take Viewpoint up on their offer of free taxi pick ups and drop offs - the road is very steep and windy, and generally best avoided on scooters or quads I think!

Beautiful location great for a special occasion this restaurant has plenty of space and great service. The food although a little more expensive than most it is well worth it. The food is different to the usual and excellently presented and tastes delicious. Certainly a meal you will remember.They also provide a free taxi service.

Right at the end of Sairee beach this restaurant was a good find.

You can choose to sit on mats or at a table. We chose the matted areas as it had amazing views of the beach.

Good range of cocktails and authentic thai dishes.

Great service and just excellent! Make sure you go! Its far nicer than the awful restaurants on the main strip that make thai food for the western palette and was mostly awful.
