Amazing food, amazing location. They serve very good cocktails as well. You pay for all this, but it is defenitely worth it. They serve the food with a twist, so nice and surprising combinations of flavours.

I don't know where the rating came from. Everything is white, which is original, but a little bit dirty, which is kind of kills the idea.

The place is beautiful at night, the service is nice. Nothing remarkable on the food tho... Maybe it's better just for drinks and appetizers,

This is a beautiful place where you can eat and drink for a reasonable price and you can enjoy of a chill out ambient with nice music and lovely views. The portions are very good and the place seems very clean. The waitress was very kind with us too.

Went here for dinner and thought it was going to be great but we were disappointed in the food. We ate at about 7 different restaurants in koh Tao over lunch and dinner and this one was actually the worse... I rated our lunch better that was half the price

Food was really good, but we got the table closest to the beach, which wasn't very pleasant. Smelled a bit (garbage) from the ocean and there was also a construction site next to the resturant which lowers the rankning.

Perfect location and set up, and the food was delicious. The staff were attentive and the food wasn't over priced.
