Me and my bf came here in my birthday. It is such an amazing special restaurant, you should make the reservation before to get the nice spot or come early. Best time to get here is before sunset. I havent tried anything else but steak and banana mix with mars chocolate bar and it was super good even though it's... More

We made a restaurant reservation on Valentine's day but left after a fight with staff. First of all, our reservation (made trough reception) was not on the list. Can happen, but what happened next was shocking. After having our starter (bruscetta - which was actually delicious) the main course was served. Unfortunately the vegetables were not properly cooked at all... More

The setting is beautiful but the prices are high and the dishes are small.. Nothing special really, nice and tasty but not enough of you're hungry

My husband and I had dinner at the Starlight restaurant. The view over the water at sunset is really nice and if that's what you're looking for then go there (make a reservation first) but the food was so so. Overall an okay experience because the staff is really nice but I would not go back.

Wonderful situation with cushions on floor for seating which we found very uncomfortable. The service and food was excellent though abit more pricey than some. Lovely sunsets from outside seating. Spray well with deet repellent anywhere you go and you will be fine.

we sat at Starlight at around 6pm for taking photos of sunset. The staff is very helpful and recommended snacks for us. We tried garlic butter bread and two pasta. a bit pricy but its acceptable if you stay in Charm Churee Villa as the transportation in Koh Tao is very high, probably you have to take a taxi (300B)...

The setting is unbeatable with the most beautiful view across the sea to the neighboring islands, watching the boats go by. Food delicious with a great selection of Thai and Western food. The service was good.

We booked this restaurant online before our trip. We booked it for my husbands 40th birthday and asked if they could give us a table with a great view. We got the best table in the restaurant, the staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was great. It was a very memorable night for us. Thank you starlight!

Had breakfast here each morning. Beautiful setting and lovely food. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. You could sit and eat while looking straight out over the beautiful bay.

We loved eating at Starlight everyday for breakfast and dinner for the 4 days we stayed at the Bamboo huts. The choice of food, presentation and service are all very good. Most nights we were treated to a free lightning show happening far off in the distance over the Mainland, which made dining here even more special.

Thank Jo_and_Steve220
