Everything we had was super tasty, great steak, great wine, friendly staff, nice atmosphere altogether, a bit on the expensive side but totally worth it.

Thank you for taking the time to visit with us. Our food, wine, service and atmosphere we think are tough to beat but we know we are not the cheapest. Our quality necessitates having higher prices, particularly the steaks, but other items such as half chicken and ribs combo, tuna steak, burgers and ribs are all very affordable. Thanks for... More

We chose to eat here on a whim, loved the look & the vibe of the place & were keen for steak (him) & king prawns (me). Place was full but encouraged to have a drink @ bar @ wait for table. Table came before drink or order placed for food, although we were there for some time. Once seated,... More

Great tasting food, nice atmosphere. Higher price than I expected. Most expensive drinks we've had all the times we have visited Samui. Most main courses cost around 1000 and up. If u are on a tight budget, don't stop here. ☺

Thanks for visiting The Shack and glad you enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Our food costs do run high, particularly the beef as we buy very high quality and it reflects in our pricing. We are not inexpensive but we also have quite a few mains well below 1,000 baht, from burgers, ribs, chicken, combo platters, seafood, etc. We also... More

Saw this one on TripAdvisor and thought we would give it ago. It really was mediocre and touristy. The food was over priced and not great. The servers were bored and the bloke in charge just seems to think he is fabulous. There is so much choice in Fisherman's Village. Believe me you can get much better 100 yards in... More

Another must when in Samui! The steaks here are DIVINE! Perfectly cooked and seasoned, you don't need any sauce with this steak. The sides are very generous and super yummy too. I had the 200g Australian tenderloin with a side of fries (also comes with coleslaw). Juicy steak and crispy fries, I enjoyed every last bite! The deep chocolate cake... More

This restaurant came highly recommended by my father in law and my wife as they have been to Samui many times before and this was my first time.

The service and the place were great. The food was very nice and simple but the prices were quite high for what it was. We ended up paying as much as in a 5 stars hotel for two main dishes, two glasses of wine and one water bottle. But still service and food are good so worth a try :)

Thank you for visiting the Shack and glad you enjoyed our service and food :-). High quality beef comes at a price and our food costs run quite high, far more than most restaurants.
