    by karin_kamphuis Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View of the restaurant at Ao Prao Beach.

    We had at stay with free breakfast. Those where GREAT! Lot of choices; cereals, breads, drinks, fresh baked eggs, thai food, hot and cold food and the great fruits!

    We had our dinner here and this was also great, many food for a small price!
    It tasted really good!!!

    Favorite Dish: The breakfast, the milk-shakes, the sorbets, the hotdog and the spinaze-rolls with my menu.
    I loved the place, because you are seated at a "balcony" in front of the beach.

    You have to eat around sunset-time; beautiful and romantic!!!!

  • Tarn Tawan Restaurant: Good foods in around the area...

    main bar~

    The restaurant is just around the corner to where we stayed. You can chose of your table either your in the restaurant viewing the white beach or beside the beach..though both of them are pretty. Most of the costumers when we got there were locals. As it was the King's birthday, most of the locals are having a weekend in some of the beaches..I've also seen quiet alot of tourist in the area. Some are British that they just sat beside the beach and had coconut juice and there skin in the sun!

    The food was okey..well, it's the nearest restaurant and the roads to anywhere of the beach resorts are bad as it gets...so, we didn't had chance to go anywhere aside from that we go there for beach hopping!

    Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken and friend rice with ham for hubby's b-fast.And for me, had an ABF..it only cost as 400baht with of cappuccino and expresso!

    The grilled chicken that hubby had wasn't that bad as he expected! It's good and not very spicy...'

    The resto has a very smart staff and is very friendly named as "A", she speaks good english and can help you with the menu in ordering as she will tell you about their foods in there!

    Favorite Dish: Try the Fried crab with curry yellow power,it's okey for 150baht in the island! And the stem fish hubby ordered...

    Everything about this restaurant brings me back good thoughts.......perfect seats right above the beach, family ran place with the best service, and the food was UNREAL. I ate alot of shrimp at this place but everything that we tried was really good. Also if you are on a budget this place is one of the cheapest on the island, i think that is because it is family ran. Fresh fruit shakes are 25 Baht and you can get a full thai dinner for 35 Baht. SUper cheap....check out the pictures for some of the dishes...

    Favorite Dish: Sweet N Sour shrimp something....... haha i dont remember the excat name.... and
    the curry, mmmm really good curry at this place.

    The retaurant is just across the bus station right you got off in the bus and you can see this glass stained restaurant that has some american decorations..something like the style of fridays bar..but they have very good taste od of thai local foods. The restaurants owner will have your order and they give us a complimentary garlic bread as the food will take a while..it was 3pm when we ordered and no ones a costumer except us..It's kinda clean and handy..

    Favorite Dish: Fried rice with pork and stir fried pork with basil leaves. It's good and cheap!

  • Samet Ville Restaurant: Thai foods

    Samet Ville REsto

    If it will not rain, the outside resto by the beach is very pretty filled with big trees to have a shelter on but be sure to ask for a mosquito killer!haha..Well, they do have best thai foods. They served from 7am to modnight. They have a good looking small beach front sari-sari store(if that's how it calls). It can get too crowded during weekends and will be deserted during sundays and weekdays.

    Samet Ville Resort is the only resort that operates around Ao Wai so all the people in the Resort will go in this resto for food! Go there early for lunch and dinner so that you can eat directly. Foods can get too late after order! They also have very friendly staffs..except for the gay frontdesk;-)

    Favorite Dish: Fried crab with curry(always) and Fried sea bass with sweet and sour souce and fried rice.

    Pictures later..

    Many to choose from: Enjoy a meal on the beach!

    by Joseph69 Updated Jan 13, 2007

    Big screen on the beach at Koh Samet

    There are numerous restaurants on the beaches of Koh Samet, and on the east coast, where we stayed, we noticed that by around sunset, the restauranters would set-up blankets, tables and pillows infront of their restaurants.

    During the day, people sunbake and enjoy the beach. At night, you can have a meal on the beach, but don't worry about sand, etc, as they lay blankets.

    It's an absolutely fantastic way to enjoy a really nice Thai meal... listening to the water lightly splash, and eating. It was a beautiful experience!

    There is also a livelier part of the beach, where there is a very large TV screen and bar... again, people just lay on the beach at night. At the time we were there, they were showing an English Premier League Football match live. Thais and many tourists love football, so don't be surprised to see a lot of it at many bars and restaurants!

    Jeb's: Can't ever forget the taste of Pat Tai!(correct?)

    by im_jiyoung Written Jul 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food there is moderate. But the taste of Pat tai(sort of noodle) was incredible.. was very cheap also..

    and at nights, the barbecue's served, still very cheap, (well... I know in Thai, almost everything's very cheap .. but still can't stop imposing.. ) and tasty as well!

    Jeps BBQ: Fantastic BBQ food on the beach

    by JoelWillTravel Written Nov 19, 2006

    Jeps BBQ is the place to try when on Koh Samet. You can pick whatever you desire from the display and they will BBQ it up for you. They have live crabs and lobster for you to pick and they will cook it exactly how you like. All tables are just a few metres from the beach and you can the waves as you're eating your meal. The only bad point was the amount of mosquitos around but the kind staff of Jeps BBQ put some kind of incense sticks in the sand and this seemed to get rid of the pesky little flies!

    Favorite Dish: It's all good, my favourite had to be the mackeral kebab washed down by a large Chang Beer.....simply delicious!!

    Roti Pancake Stands: Good pancakes

    by Sobe-A-Rush Written Sep 5, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    roti pancake woman

    These people i have never seen out during the day which sucked, however this one lady was always out during dinner time. Her stand was right next to silversands bar on Ao Phai beach. All the other Roti vendors i only saw on Hat Sai Kaew beach from about 9pm untill the beach was dead. You can get anything from plain pancakes to banada strawberry and vanilla blueberry, anything you want pretty much. The price is a little high for thailand for this as we were paying anything from 10-35 baht per pancake. Up north in Pai it was half of that. But anyways, try this out, its definitly good.

    Favorite Dish: I loved the banana chocolate. Best option in my head.

    Jeb's: Good Food & Good Chill

    by Arjaree Written Nov 1, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At Jeb's, there is also a restaurant on the beach. They provide good food, shakes and fresh coconut juice. To me, music is almost everything that makes me able to sit and relax there ALL day...their music are those of Cafe Del Mar, Jack Johnson, something that really get along well with the beach mood ya know.

    Favorite Dish: Everything in general is pretty decent.

    Seaview at Ao Prao: Nice spot for a BBQ

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Jun 30, 2007

    The "Seaview Restaurant" opens from 07.00-24.00 hrs, located right on the water's edge, it has a pleasant ambiance whether during the day or at night. It serves authentic Thai and international cuisine & when we were there, they had a small selection of fresh seafood and meats for you to choose from. Other choices included poultry and satay/kebabs.
    Once you have chosen, the friendly staff would throw it upon the BBQ and it comes back to you served with some green salad, grilled corn and grilled potatoes.
    Generally, the service staff were friendly and efficient.

    The Beach bar which is adjacent serves a variety of cocktails and other beverages. A rather loud three piece live band serenades customers late into the night. (Great for the customer, but it's rather noisy for those wanting an early night in their beach bungalow!)

    Favorite Dish: Fresh whole fish smothered with a layer of rock salt and covered with foil, before being grilled on hot charcoals.

    Squeeze some lime on top for taste, and you're in for a delicious treat!

    Lots of choice - sometimes dubious quality!

    by jolou Written Jan 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I didn't find Ko Samet to be very good for food in general. It was more expensive than in other parts of Thailand and sometimes the meals we had were a bit disappointing. It's a case of finding one or two good places and sticking with them.

    Jep's at Ao Hin Khok: Dining on the beach!

    by idy Written Jun 22, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Perfect with a light breeze and soft sun!

    This is a restaurant catering to foriegn tastes. It generally serves the same kind of food as the others beside it, such as western sets, local dishes tweaked for western palettes, grilled seafood, and so on. The food is generally pretty good, nothing to complain about.

    The special feature is that you can dine on the beach itself if you like, as they've got furniture placed right on the sand. It's ideal for those who have just gone swimming and want some food or drinks without putting on "proper" clothes.

    It's also ideal for those who are people-watching! ;)

    Restaurants, in general

    by Arjaree Updated May 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most restaurants on Vongduen beach are more or less the same. We tried 3 restaurants. Their food and price are about the same rate.

    So I supposed its a matter of which place has more comfy seat, better service or their music, decor... Not much of the difference I'd say.

    Favorite Dish: Green curry chicken
    Pad khi mao
    Banana shake
