Food and wine was absolutely great. The staff was super helpful, even the chef came by a few times to check on us. We ended up going back 2 nights in a row. A must eat on samui.

Enjoy the wonderful seaview drinking an Aperol Spritz or a glass of wine from our selected cellar, with some chillout music. Shabby chic interior and only six tables, Salefino is the place to taste italian seafood, Mediterranean and traditional recipes. We only use best raw materials, fresh and supplied from top suppliers in Samui. Especially in high season, we strongly suggest to book the table, both for lunch and dinner.
