“Magical setting, great food, good value and superb service.”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Wooden restaurant on stilt, over the ocean, serving good seafood at a great price. Caters well for couples and families. Free get-you-home taxi was a surprise bonus. They really do succeed in their desire to make you feel relaxed and welcome.

“Dining over the sea”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 via mobile

There's a reason this is #1 restaurant on Ko Mak. If you enjoy seafood-you must try dining here.
And sitting in a restaurant on stilts is a great refreshing experience. Check out the on-site museum too.

“Perfect from beginning to end!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

We ended up eating here two nights in a row because it was that good! Every single dish we had was perfectly cooked, the seafood was fresh, and the service was great. The owner and his wife went out of their way to chat with us and we truly enjoyed talking to them and hearing their story! We will definitely be back during our next visit to the island and recommend that everyone eat here as well, you will not be disappointed! We had the soft shell crab, steamed crab, garlic pepper prawns, shark, and the squid with lemon sauce and they were all superb!

“Great seafood and Cultural trip”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

i enjoyed the crabs sooo much that our coordinator had to go and check out our colleagues' table if there are still crabs on the take...and luckily found a few ones to whet our appetite! After the lunch, the owner led us to nearby Koh Mak museum, which he said he painstakingly put together (during the last 2 or 3 decades) and gave us a sense of "history" of how this Koh Mak Resort started. Such a great sense of pride and ownership in being a part of this peaceful and serene island, "Never lose the culture" he said. Great food...great experience!

“Great CRABS!”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

Wow! ... I thought I was back home in the Philippines eating steamed great big crabs cooked ala Filipino style. Couldn't get enough of those red & white wonders prepared with much love & warmth of amazing thailand hospitality by its husband & wife team ...

And yes, the other offerings were equally great and tasty ... spicyness was just right not to burn my lips ... and oh, I can't forget the ambiance of relishing all the flavors with a warm breeze from the ocean. Yes, just a few steps and you can venture experimenting a plunge into the Gulf of Thailand.!!

Not for the gourmet-seeking palette, but for the "Lutong Bahay" wonder of great food, this had got to be one with the others up there!!
