We had dinner here one night and the place was pleasant, with cozy lighting and a good view of the sunset. The food was good and the beer was cold. Not much more you could ask for considering the cosy ambience.

We arrived for lunch just when a big party of other guests had just ordered, so the staff was busy! That meant that food took a bit long to get served, which can be a bit of a hassle with two hungry children.

Had a lovely time with 6 adults and 6 kids. This end of the beach very clean, perhaps thanks to Pimalai Resort keeping it so. Food very good and reasonably priced for a top location. Definately worth a visit.

We have been for the last 3 years and love coming here. A great vibe, great menu and food. A beautiful location situated at the end of the bay, within easy reach from Pimalai. Look forward to returning next year.

We stayed in a nearby hotel and went to Samesame Restaurant both for lunch and for afternoon drinks. A lovely beach restaurant, tables and chairs in the sand, directly on the beach with a very relaxing and easy-going ambience – and they have Lavazza coffee....More
