We went to whitening because of the interesting menu. We were disappointed, because the pumpkin and vegetable were not available. The French fries were only a very small appetizer. But the worst was the fish: it was the most expensive fish on our trip, but still very poor quality. It was not fresh and not well grilled, the inside of... More

A bit pricy however the food is delicious, so many great things on the menu so come with friends to try it all! I had the vegetarian roti & it was fantastic. Salads and healthy options available too. Lovely spot to watch the sunset.

Delicious. Beautiful view. Decent prices. We watched the sunset from here while sitting at a table with bean bags. Very comfy. Ordered the duck curry...delicious! And you can make any mixture of fruit shake you desire. Would recommend!

I would say that this restaurant on the beach is simple but classy and cosy. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes. We ordered chicken on mashed potato and chicken kebab, both really good. The portions are very big, which is a good thing too!

Whitening is a real oasis of style and sophistication overlooking the lights of Koh Tao harbour. The pasta was delicious and the whole snapper was very tasty. We visited twice during our four night stay on Koh Tao. Good choice of Thai & western food. Service is very professional and helpful. Loved this place especially since many of the "party"... More

The restaurant is fine, the food is good but the service is anonymous and not at all smiling. One of the best restaurant in Koh Tao but it could be very better.

Definitely my favorite restaurant on this island. Never had a bad meal here. The food can be really slow, that's the only downside but the atmosphere is nice and you're right by the beach and the good is awesome. Recommended!
