The restaurant is clearly in a hard-to-find area a couple turns off the main road so get a driver who knows the way (or a detailed enough GPS).
The menus are shown on big chalk boards which sets a casual tone that is there throughout the entire restaurant visit.
We went with children and noticed a lack of dishes suitable for kids so if I ever went back, it would be adult only for sure. We were advised to go for the pasta with chorizo for our daughter and it was a very creamy/cheezy story with meat that appeared to be more like bacon than chorizo. The other dishes were much better!
We had a main dish to share for starter (charcuteries and cheese platter) - top notch! It came with a simple yet very tasty salad too.
For mains we had different version of duck. My duck leg confit was the best. The meat just fell off that duck leg and was so perfectly cooked I could not get enough of it. It came served with a potato gratin which was also very tasty but it was the meat that nailed it.
For dessert we had the chocolate cake and vanilla ice-cream. Unfortunately they arrived at different times so we had finished the chocolate cake before the vanilla ice-cream came (I would have loved to try them together which was our sharing idea).
The owners work at the restaurant and are very nice. Advices are offered and the wife even walked us out into the parking lot afterwards to make sure our taxi driver would not over-charge us going back to our hotel. Much appreciated personal service you don't get in many places nowadays.
The restaurant's look is something else. Very rustic, full of weird lights/lamps (is it christmas all year around here?). Lots of colour and a couple of tacky musicians painted on the wall of the house which somehow just help make the place feel even more authentic.
Most seating offered is outdoors and there are mosquitos. I was bitten in 3-4 places but as you may know, the Ko Samui mosquitos' bites fade very quickly (not like the ones we have in Sweden...). One-two hours and they are a faint memory. Still it was somewhat irritating while at the restaurant and they could have done something to limit the number of mosquitos in my opinion. There were no mosquito repellent burners or anything else in place as far as I noticed.
There is no view but the place somehow still makes for a great setting for a romantic dinner. I recommend the place for its food, authentic feel and great service. No need to dress up, come as you are.
