Seems to be lots of talk about this restaurant, perhaps the lure of the fishtanks as you enter where you can chose your dinner and have it cooked to order. Restaurant is very large, definite feel that it caters for the hoards of tourists that arrive by coach. We ordered appetisers and main courses and they all arrived, incredibly quickly, and all together. Our sons chose Thai curries which were totally unremarkable. My husband and I chose local Samui dishes. The baby octopus coconut curry was like chewing rubber bands and the pork with shrimp paste was gelatinous belly pork with a revolting sauce. Much better options nearby.

This place is a little hard to awalk to becasue of the busy road but it's worth the trip. It is a big restaurant capable of taking full tourist buses. The three of us walked over from hotel on a recommendation and really enjoyed the dinner. Great food and great prices with ocean views.

Don't bother visiting unless you love seafood! I ordered Thai food and the meat was over cooked and chewy. Service also wasn't great and we had to ask three times for the bill.

Simple decor, restaurant right on the beach with spectacular views. A must have is the baked mussels with chilli and basil a little spicy but amazing with generous serve of mussels . With green seafood curry and a watermelon juice all for 370 baht . Crazy great prices for a great meal. Will be back . A very relaxed atmosphere which would be great if you have children with you. Huge selection of seafood.

Had squid, rubbery.
Wife had pork. Rubbery.
Not awful but avoid.
The fish done whole it probably a lot better.
