French and Thai cuisine. We have been there 3 times, and everything was great. For cheese lovers - Samui salad with goat cheese, it's the best salad which I ever tried) the owner and his wife are nice people. One of the best places in Lamai. Great for lunch.

We had red tuna steak with french fries and salad and we really enjoyed it. We got a baguette as well. The food was for 350 Baht each, glass of wine for 140. Good price performance ratio though.

Good place for breakfast or lunch. You can sit just by the sea or indoors. Great staff and food was delicious. We were not disappointed and would definitely recommend this place to travellers looking for good quality Thai food.

We came in the evening around 5.30 pm (they close around 6 pm) and had the vegetable spring rolls and a beer, it was just perfect. The service is also very friendly, unfortunately we found... More
