We ate here 5 years ago and it was the highlight of our trip. Arriving here on Saturday it was the first reservation we made. Imagine my disappointment and frustration that I walked out before ordering the meal due to very dubious behaviour and staff...More

Have been to Koh Samui four times now and this place has still not failed us. Prawn cocktail and meat filled tortellini with quality ham and mushroom cream. This holds itself above Duomo around the corner. The complimentary Limoncellos were a nice touch as well....More
