My boyfriend and I ate here on Tuesday night and were left feeling disappointed and hungry. I ordered the carbonara which was bland and cold, and I wasn't offered parmesan which I feel is almost a necessity with most pasta dishes. When i asked one of the waitresses for some I was met with a reluctant grunt, so I daren't... More

Only had breakfast there but most staff are very unfriendly and the older breakfast cook is borderline rude - clearly not liking his job or his guess .Breakfast is very average to be polite, coffee is undrinkable- but Location is beautiful with a nice view but would not go back

Decided to go for dinner when walking passed, the location was beautiful we sat outside on the beach. We ordered pizza which was okay and Thai chicken cashew which I found to spicy to eat. Had both Thai and other alternatives for food however much more expensive than a meal you would pay in Chaweng.

My wife & I plus 2 friends had a very enjoyable meal here during our stay in Bophut in October. We chose to sit on the terrace at street level rather than on the beach and it was wonderful to sit outside on a lovely warm evening overlooking the beach and the bay. The staff were very attentive and the... More

A friend and myself have been sampling the resturants on fisherman's wharf at Bohput. This was our third and by far the best. Luckily I am travelling with a thai speaker who really helps with the ordering. Please try the seafood option and ask for it Thai style. We had the best and the most fresh choice of seafood here...

Stopped here for lunch before heading off for our boat to Koh Tao. Sat on the beach and then discovered that the menu was pretty large. I had my reservations as to whether the food would be any good, but they were soon laid to rest. The food came and it was lovely. Couldn't complain at all, and would definitely... More

We went to this restaurant for tea while visiting Fishermans village market. It looked impressive and was beautifully set up with lanterns in the trees and tables on the beach, the menu had a lot of options including Thai, western and Italian styles. Maybe they are trying to do too much? Our starter was ok but the main courses (we... More

We had a lovely dinner at a table on the beach as the sun set behind Bophut Beach. Wonderful Thai dinners and very good service. Recommend having a meal here.

On holiday I'm Maenam for 3 weeks and visited this place as it looked nice and had a lovely terrace over looking the beach. Selected some prawns and snapper off the menu. Food was awful, over cooked and flavourless. If the waiter did smile it was wind rather than the usual friendly service. Meal came in at nearly 2900 baht... More
