We became regulars for sundowners at Taraporn during our time in Koh Tao. Their wooden deck juts out over the water and cushioned seating allows you to lean back and enjoy the view of Chalok Bay. Their prices are a bit steep compared to places in town but I suppose that is due to the fantastic location. The service was... More

Have eaten twice this week here already and could possibly again. Pizza after 6:30 is wood fire and great and the pasta is also really good. One dish a friend had that was not amazing was the burger, lots of bread not a lot of meat. They do bake their own bread here also so it smells great and anything... More

We ate here twice, trying everything from spring rolls, to wood oven pizza, to pasta. Everything we had was great! And this was the first place in thailand I saw a side salad on the menu, and for 50B it was delicious! I would reccomend this place for legit pizza with stringy cheese, delicious garlic bread, and their sauces for... More

Nice wooden deck to hang out on, but the food was the worst so far in Koh Tao. Had a cheeseburger, patty was totally raw except for the charred outer layer, compact bun weighed around half a kilo and tasted super stale. My wife had the most boring Tom Kha in Thailand since 2008, tasted like somebody had cut a... More

Good food, location is just perfect, high price, staff are average. Better going for lunch than dinner.

We enjoyed several meals here, relaxing on the water. The staff was always friendly, and the food was good, but the atmosphere and view were what kept us coming back. Prices and food were both comparable or better than those without a view of the bay.

Service was great, food was delicious and the prices were decent compared to some parts of the island. The view is worth it in itself!
