Review

Setting

Located on a sheer promontory above idlyic Crystal Bay, The Cliff Bar and Grill is a fantastic spot for relaxed sundowners followed by a hearty meal with family and friends.

Food

Something of an institution on Koh Samui, this popular all-day eatery specialises in dishes from the Mediterranean and the southern European vibe is evident not only in the offerings on the tapas and a la carte menus but also in the restaurant and bar’s laid-back decor. Begin with the famous jumbo seafood platter, a selection of ultra fresh lobster, scallops, mussels, calamari and prawns. Perfect for sharing, it is a great prelude to a main course of 150-day grain-fed Australian tenderloin cooked perfectly to taste and served with button mushrooms, fondant potatoes and a choice of mushroom, garlic, blue cheese, peppercorn or barbecue sauce. As an alternative, piquant Portuguese-style piri piri prawns, another signature dish, is highly recommended. The a la carte menu is extensive so be sure to check out the wide-ranging salads and pasta selections—and hard as it may be, do try to leave room for an exquisite dessert of chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream.

Wine

A seriously good wine list with over 60 labels representing all the major producing regions of the world. Prices range from modest to eye-watering for rarer vintages. Do enjoy a pre- or post-dinner cocktail on the terrace.
