Stopped here a couple of times, just had a couple of beers the first time and we had lunch the second time. Staff are great and the owner is really helpful. The food was excellent, by far the best we’ve had in Thailand so far....More

Hi, I have just seen this question, so sorry for the late response. I have no idea about opening hours, or taxi. Were you only in Koh Samui for 1 afternoon? Not enough time.
