This is the highest restaurant on Koh Tao. Out hotel arranged for the restaurant to pick us up and drop us off after ... free of charge, courtesy of Lung Pae. The food was good although I wouldnt recommend the steaks as I've defitniely had far better back home. The cocktails and Thai food was delicious. However, it’s the view... More

Our hotel called and arranged for us to be collected free of charge to take us up to Lung Pae. What amazing views, we went up just before sunset and would recommend doing this to make the most of the view before dark. We ordered steaks and both were cooked beautifully. Very reasonable prices. A lovely romantic evening.

This is my favourite restaurant on Koh Tao. The steak is amazing. The views are sublime. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Plus they have a free pick up and drop for free. Love this restaurant. A definite must visit if your on the island.

This restaurant is high on a hill on Koh Tao with wonderful views down to Chalok Bay. Get there in time to see the sunset and ask for a table outside to get the best vantage point. The food is good, the service a bit on the slow and chaotic side. We had prawns to start....juicy and fresh. I had... More

Have traveled the world for past 13 months-can honestly say this is one of the TOP steaks we have had. The E4 is what both my husband and I had and both were extremely pleased. Do not miss this place !

Food is fresh and properly cooked. Fish is brilliant, for instance the crab is not surimi, but actual fresh crab. Everything we had was delicious, fresh and good looking. They have a wide choice, and they also have import beers. Service is impeccable and very efficient. They literally wait for you to look at them to come at your table... More

Went here for dinner, taxi collected us from the pier. If you like a steak try the E4 medium rare ....simply heaven. One of the better steaks in Thailand. Great views and always best to book.

Although prices are almost double the regular thai restaurants, I will most likely come back to this place again and again. Starters and maincourses were all above good and the staff extremely serviceminded. Just a wonderful experience...

Went here for dinner, and had one of the better steaks in thailand. Like most places in Asia, they cook the meat quite long so ask for rare if you want medium. And make sure you go early, as the views are great.
