Had a great meal here during our stay on the island. This restaurant is by far the nicest we visited and is a credit to the island itself. Really good selection and quality of food. Staff were lovely and friendly. Very reasonably priced for what you get. A really lovely atmosphere. Would visit again at the drop of a hat.

Came here twice after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed.

It costs $8 for an all you can eat buffet. We got our money's worth and was well and truly stuffed afterwards!

Try the pork and chicken, very tasty. The grilled fish fillets were average though. Most of the other things on the buffet were different on the second time we visited, which was cool...

Would recommend

We came here after friends' recommendation. The restaurant is located rather far from the main beach. As we went on a tour on that day we arrived late, maybe around 8:30/9 PM, there were barely lights on the way but we found it as there aren't any more restaurants on that part of the island. When we arrived, one of the staff explained everything and got us seated, she wasn't particularly friendly but that's okay. As I went to the buffet to get food I realized everything wasn't really warmed anymore and also they wouldn't refill, except of the fish/BBQ. The food itself was alright, nothing too special. Of course there were also a few exceptions and also the desserts were good, but after being praised that much and all these positive reviews here on TA I had higher expectations and was simply disappointed. The toilets are on the opposite side of the road and there was neither toilet paper nor a sink, you had to wash your hands at the garden hose in the restaurant behind the bar where the staff stands, which was quiet irritating. I would really like to give more points but the overall experience was just one of the worst on my whole trip.

I would recommend coming here earlier when everything is freshly served and you might have a much better experience.. also for that price (8 dollar buffet not including drinks) we definitely found better food on the island :)

A beautifully presented restaurant with lovely atmosphere and wonderful views out to the water. The food was superb and we loved our visit, we went for the all you can eat buffet and at $8 dollars it was well worth it, multiple options and great BBQ meats and fish with vegan and vegetarian options avaliable. Would highly recommend to any traveller wanting a wonderful meal in great surroundings.

Beautiful place with great view and delicious food. My favorite is grilled fish and amok so far. Highly recommended if you are coming to Samloem.
