We followed our guide book's recommendation to The Farmer expecting to find a restaurant in an enviable reputation overlooking the rice fields back from the main road running past Mae Nam. The restaurant is still there, so are the rice fields; but, to our surprise, there is now also a very swish resort. According to the delightful receptionist I-Tim, who... More

This restaurant is soul-less, but the food was excellent. Great choice for a family lunch, especially if wanting a choice of Thai and Westers, after a few days of spicy Thai food.

We stayed at the resort which houses The Farmer Restaurant, so decided to try it after reading the reviews. We went in with high expectations because of the high quality experience we had received at the hotel and frankly it was disappointing. We had the Fried Thai Seabass, which comes with rice, and the Duck Breast - we tried getting... More

we enjoyed our meal at the farmer restaurant, they picked us up from the resort in their minibus and the food and surroundings were very nice, I had the crispy duck which was very nice, the view of water buffalo and rice paddies made for an interesting meal

After a big storm we dropped in here having originally planned more of a cafe evening. The menu was well suited to a family as it allowed the grown-ups to have some good Thai curries (the five rices were a very nice touch) whilst our daughters had crispy duck and a burger with chips. It seemed a shame that we... More

Just had my fantastic dinner with my family last night at The farmer. Thai food is very good and I must say this is one of the best Thai restaurant in Samui. Nice view of rice fields and comfortable atmosphere with soft music in background. I will visit this restaurant again for sure.

We came to this place without a reservation for our friends birthday. We were able to get a nice table without a res. We had top notch food, drinks, and service. We even got a free dessert and free shuttle back to our hotel! The staff was great and it was a nice change of scenery from beach front to... More
