The venue is located on the North Sairee Beach in the Koh Tao Cabana Resort. The restaurant is nicely furnished and has a great view into the bay. The menu is medium sized and the prices are more on the upper side. I had a Grasshopper as cocktail which was a little too sweet. We ordered Crab Cake as starter... More

We were for dinner and it was the best food & service on the hole island so far. It's perfect for a romantic dinner far away from the Teenie Party trouble. Typical very very good Thai food & also international food!!! We recommend 100%

Lovely place. Great location. Quirky atmosphere. Food was delicious. Drinks were to a good standard. The service was slow though- we waited quite a while for food to come.

We ate here twice during our four day stay at the Koh Tao Cabana Resort. We had lunch our first day and I got a hamburger and the hamburger patty fell almost entirely apart to where I couldn't eat it like a hamburger and the quality of the meat was very poor. My husband got the club sandwich which was... More

You always pay double at the well located restaurants - that's just the way it is. But the western food here is actually not that expensive compared to other places. We were here for lunch - I had fish and chips and my wife had a tuna sandwich. Both were quite good and somewhat made from scratch... For a 5-star... More

We are a bit picky so have been trying to find nice places to eat in Koh Tao other than on the back of Saree Beach where you need to be 12 to feel at home. To be fair Rimlae is on Saree Beach just at the northern most point. This is the best restaurant we have found so far.... More

Just came back from having dinner over there, you have the best view and nice restaurant , the food not so bad either, a bit pricey but you pay for the view and location. Nicely decorated inside, looks so romantic at night . They also charge 7% for VAT or service charge, not so sure. But all in all, one... More

Away from the Sairee beach party going crowd, this lovely restaurant does not disappoint whether large or small groups of one. I came here years ago and revisiting this place did not disappoint! Excellent service, great seating near the shore edge, yummy food and appealing presentation. Absolutely coming back and not to be missed if staying on Sairee beach!
