French beach restaurant at Lamai. Very friendly and tasty place. Fruit and coconut shakes are perfect as well as tuna tar tar (the portion is really HUGE). You can spend the whole day using free beachbed and umbrella and orderind delicious food and drinks

We came across this restaurant on trip advisor and it had good ratings. When you first go there it looks like a dingy little restaurant. The owner is from France and the food is all locally made.

Back to Koh Samui again. And Baobab is again the best local restaurant! Delicious food and very friendly staff! Nothing can compare to its beef and tuna tar tar! Most cosy breakfasts with amazing ocean view!

This spot is simple perfect. We enjoyed our tuna tartare and our beef sandwich in a paradisac environment. The staff and the owers were very kind. Take a cocktail with our foot in the sand.... take a litle swim when we have to wait our lunch... Just Perfect!
