A lovely Thai restaurant just that's quite close to the middle of Choeng Mon (it's on the corner of Plai Laem Soi 6). Mr Eung and his staff are really sweet and we love his food. It's a favourite to go here for dinner with some of our neighbours. We usually order a whole fish, penang curry (chicken or beef), and mixed vegetables. Delish!

A small family run Thai restaurant in Plai Laem . We often go here for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently really good and it’s not expensive. You can get beer, fruit shakes and coconuts. It’s located on Plai Laem Soi 10, just behind the 7-11.

We’ve been going to this family run beachfront restaurant for over 15 years, and we still love their Crab Meat Curry. They have an extensive Thai and Western menu. You can also use their sunloungers if you fancy hanging on the beach for a little while before/after your meal. The tables are laid out on the beach at night for dinner.

A lovely Thai restaurant close to Big Buddha. Really friendly owners, yummy food and good prices. My favourite is the Shambala special curry. I usually have it with prawns, but it’s equally as nice with chicken.

A beachfront restaurant/bar with great Thai food and western choices too. Last time I was there I had a Pomelo Salad with Prawns. Western breakfasts are pretty good and they also have specials on most nights, such as “All you can eat Ribs” on Thursdays, and “Live Music with a Thai Buffet” on Sundays.

Run by a lovely German couple, Patrick and Sandra, who have lived in Samui for about 10 years. You can choose from healthy vegetarian options, Thai food and German food and beers. They also offer private Thai cooking classes (just 2 people per class). Located at the top end of Chaweng, near the Blue Lagoon Resort & before the one-way system starts.

A real favourite with the Samui residents. We can easily spend a few hours up here – the food, views and fruit shakes are great. Call ahead and book a Sala (pavillion). It’s a steep road going up to the Jungle Club, and fairly easy to drive up if you have a 4WD or motorbike. We leave our car at the bottom of the road and call for their 4WD transfer service.

A sweet little cafe on the very south end of Chaweng Beach Road. I can recommend Tanya’s gluten free cakes and chai latte’s, but she also makes a delicious Thai appetiser called “Miang Kom” and some other simple dishes. And I’ve heard her coffee is good too!

Located on a side road close to the Bophut Traffic Lights, this is a great little place to hang out for a couple of hours. The cafe overlooks a small lake and you can choose to sit in the openair house or the new air-conditioned building. The fruit shakes are amazing works of art and super tasty. And the food is pretty good here too (they serve both Thai and western dishes).

One of our favourite beachfront cafes. Simple Thai dishes, western meals. You can also get poached eggs, pastries and coffee for brunch. A great place to chill out during the day or at night. It’s at the front of The Wharf shopping centre in Bophut. Open from 8am every day. Sometimes we paddle from Bangrak across to Bophut and can stop at Bar Baguette for breakfast or coffee at the end before heading back to your resort.

A gem of a cafe in Fishermans Village – in a classic old Thai style house. It’s run by the same owners of Bar Baguette, so you’ll find a similar menu of simple Thai dishes. Plus you can get breakfast, pastries and coffee. Open from 8am every day.

This is how Samui used to feel about 10-15 years ago, but now with all the modern conveniences of healthy food and fast wifi! It’s a great place to hang out for a few hours, enjoy some fresh Thai food, healthy western options and great zingy fruit shakes. There’s also a small massage place on the beach. We sometimes stop here for lunch or fruit shakes during one of our north coast paddle tours.

This little gem on the south end of Lipa Noi beach also reminds us of what it was like in Samui around 15 years ago. They have an extensive selection of Thai food, western dishes and pizzas!! We love their Lemon-Mint shake and their fresh passionfruit soda. You might even want to stay overnight in one of their funky bungalows, made from old sea-shipping containers.

We usually stop here for lunch after paddling along the Taling Ngam coastline. They have a great range of Thai dishes. My favourite appetiser is their Chicken Satay which is served with the skewers sticking out of a pineapple. It’s a lovely spot to hang for a few hours, and you’ll get great sunset views too.

We encourage everyone to get off the main ring road and explore the southern part of the island. You’ll love the quiet roads and sleepy beaches. Stop by Sweet Sisters for breakfast or lunch and you won’t be disappointed. It’s part of the slow food revolution, so be prepared to wait a little while for your meal.

Amazing little restaurant in Bophut. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, groovy cocktails and food to die for! This restaurant wouldn't be out of place in London, Bangkok or Sydney! We loved the green curry pie and the duck massaman with sweet potato. This place is popular, so make sure you make a reservation.

Drop in to taste the rum, and stay for lunch or dinner. They make a Martinique style of rum from the local sugar cane, and it goes so well with their in-house syrup. They often do a special Sunday BBQ/Buffet lunch in the garden, call before you go to make sure it's on.

This is one of our favourite restaurants/bars in Samui. Go here for the amazing sunset views, chic ambience, fab cocktails and yummy food. Plus the owners and staff are super friendly. There’s a great mix of Western food such as steaks, burgers and ribs, and a good selection of Thai food with a twist (our favourite is the Red Curry Clams, but I also like the Snapper with Black Pepper and Garlic). It’s not the cheapest place for Thai food, but you won’t be disappointed.

When you're in the south of the island stop by to see this temple and the famous mummified monk! Drop by to Chai's Cuisine & Farm for a meal or fruit shake afterwards, he's just down the road.
We recommend these guys for Scuba Diving and Snorkelling day trips. They also do day trips to the Angthong Marine Park. Top notch tours!

Great day trip to Angthong Marine Park. You get to kayak around the islands, and then take in the sights. It's a big boat, so plenty of space to relax on the trip out to the islands.
