This little gem of a place is tucked away down a side soi about 1/2 a kilometre down Soi 1 Maenam, but it is absolutely worth hunting out. Arriving at the restaurant, you feel as if you've discovered a little oasis in the jungle, the décor is slightly bohemian, and has a cozy feel, enhanced by the welcome that you... More

I can't deny that the food at the Boudoir was reasonable French cooking. However would I rank it as Number one restaurant in Koh Samui? No. The atmosphere was bohemian yet grungy and not as inviting as a lot of other restaurants in Koh Samui. Additionally, it was a little further away from the main precincts, and felt isolated as...

I booked a table for our anniversary dinner once I've read the reviews and it did not disappoint. This husband and wife team was so friendly and down to earth. We were the first ones there and got to choose to sit at the little hut. The cozy ambiance and nice decor set the tone for a romantic meal. We... More

We have been there several times and everything was great! The owner (chief) and his wife (takes care about service) are awesome people. Food is very delicious: beef, tartar and desserts are excellent! French nouvelle cuisine and service in Thailand. We visited a lot of restaurants on the island, but this place still is the best.

The Boudoir was our "treat" dinner while staying on the island. It's a few blocks off the main street in Mae Nam in what appears to be a converted home. The decor is warm, welcoming, and eclectic and the different tables fun and comfortable. Run by a husband (chef) and wife (Magali, front of the house) team, we were blown... More

The food was amazing, friendly atmosphere and lovely hosts! Potatoe dauphinoise was absolutely amazing and all mains came with additional amuse bouche, side salads, bread and after meal shots all for free! Tucked away down a road off the ring road, this restaurant is definitely worth the trip if you're on Koh Samui!!

WOW! Cannot imagine how they get such fresh food and large range of menu to choose from! Cool vibe. I wish I had his potato gratin every single day of my life! Reasonable priced! Very comfortable host and hostess. You won't regret! ;)

Had dinner here based on TA reviews and the fact I love french food. The interior - both inside and outside is very eclectic and cozy. Great for a romantic dinner with your SO or a quiet dinner with friends. Waitress and chef very friendly. The chef addressed our table 3 times. We were given complimentary hors d oeuvres at... More

First of all, if you are in Samui, make a plan to go to this restaurant. It doesn't matter how far away you are; take a cab, drive a motorbike, whatever means of transportation, it is worth it. The food is absolutely delectable. The atmosphere is pleasant. And the owners are friendly and gracious--the chef loves cooking and cares greatly... More
