This ‘down-to-earth eatery’ promises great food and a ‘warm and welcoming atmosphere’. Offering a gastro-pub feel and relaxed vibe (“you will not find waiters with white gloves here!”), it is a great place to enjoy great wines, cocktails with a twist and high end food served in a relaxed, somewhat under-stated and rustic, way.

Samui’s ‘coolest Italian restaurant’ serves the most delicious freshly baked pizzas and authentic pasta dishes (including a gluten-free menu) and offers great service and atmosphere. With refurbishment under way ahead of the 2015/2016 high season, this island favourite promises a fresh new look including a new kitchen, new bar/lounge, a much-welcome air-conditioned section and new al-fresco area. Chef Marco’s menu is also being re-engineered and promises to bring new, equally tantalising, dishes to their diners.
