Reviewed 15 May 2014

Strangely enough, there are many French restaurants on the two short main streets of Mae Haad and Chocolat is one of three that I know off. Looking for a change of pace from the surprisingly mediocre Thai food in the little town I took a chance at Chocolat. I said, I took a chance because Mae Haad being off the main beach, Sairee, is rather empty and all the restaurants are equally dormant, making it difficult to judge their popularity by the size of the crowd in it. The restaurant has a nice feel to it with a 1960's style salon sporting an original vintage phonograph and a collection of French music on 33 rpm vinyl records. My companions and I were only the second table in the whole place. I went for the "plat du jour" which is chicken breast on tagliatelle and blue cheese sauce while my dive buddies ordered other pasta dishes. The one Belgian in our party was surprised at the good selection of Belgian beers available. The cook, a genuine Frenchmen, did good; we wiped our dishes clean, had desserts, a few more drinks, chit chat a bit and walked away with our taste bud on full approval.

Had a lovely lunch at Chocolat last week. The decor and layout gives a good atmosphere and the couple running the place were really welcoming. The portions were generous and the food was great. This is a great place to go for something a bit more sophisticated than the average Koh Tao eating place.

Chocolat is simply amazing ! The atmosphere is very relaxed and inspirational with the chalk wall where you can draw or leave a message.
The food is delicious. the chef is french and makes no compromise on the quality of its ingredients. the presentation is delicate And creative. Chocolat offer a superb selection of dessert which is a rare on the Island, so if you have a craving for sweets it is definitely the place to go ! Now if you prefer a fresh Beer it is also the place for you: they offer a wide selection of Beers including a range of Belgium Beers.
A few extras are convenient too: strong Wi-Fi signal and rental of well maintained safe scooters.
I would strongly recommend this place, for the quality of the food, the exceptional ambiance and the welcoming personality of the two French owners.
