Restaurant is part of blue lagoon hotel. Staff are incredibly pleasant and friendly. You will not find better service in thailand. Breakfast every morning was superb and the cocktails and smoothies are nothing less than splendid. Restaurant overlooks beach and the pool is lovely. Don't think just do it. 😀

We ate on the beach at Kantara Restaurant and had a wonderful meal and eating experience. I would thoroughly recommend that you find your way up to the north end of Chaweng Beach and try out this restaurant. The food is great and we were treated really well.

We had the best time and had the best service out of all our Thai travels. Food and drinks were amazing! Great beach view!

We were walking up and down the north end of Chaweng beach looking for places to eat when a lovely front of house man engaged us about his restaurant. we had tried many others along the beach front, some crazily busy with music thumping out and fire shows to more relaxed quieter cafe settings... on first appearances this place looked...

The venue is quite nice, especially the tables by the water. The prices are not too bad considering the location. Food and service were both great. We had the Thai dishes, which were well cooked.

Had a great night here with our party of 9. Extensive menu with something to offer all tastes. Was over drinking cocktails by now so was happy to have a few glasses of wine which were very reasonably priced. This is rare in Samui - wine is normally very $$$. Service was friendly and prompt and the meals were great.... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The food was great - we had a large group and shared red curry, green curry, chicken satay sticks, pad Thai, massaman curry, fish & vegetables and it was all great. The staff were really good and were very good with understanding a family member's food allergy and explaining which dishes were ok. The... More

This was one of our favourite places to eat while we were in Chaweng. It has a good wine list, the service was amazing and the tables were set right on the beach. It was a lovely setting (although beach sellers do still come along in the dark of night but if you ignore them they soon wander off). My... More
