1. Sunset By Angelina

As the name suggests, this is the perfect place to watch the sunset. Come for a drink and watch the always spectacular sunset, but stay for the amazing steaks and French focused cuisine. Sunset by Angelina is easily one of the most romantic restaurants in Koh Samui.

Reserve a space right at the edge for the best views of the sun setting over the calm waters.

2. Gusto Italiano

Italian food is well known to be some of the very best in the world, but when it’s cooked this well and served in a stunning setting like Koh Samui it goes to another level. Gusto Italian in Fisherman’s Village is a beautiful restaurant that serves up handmade pasta and wood-fired pizza.

You can choose to dine directly on the beach or on the romantic terrace overlooking the sea.

3. Tree Tops Sky Dining & Bar

The beauty of this restaurant is that it is super exclusive, with just eight private Salas in the place. The restaurant is among the canopy of 120-year-old trees with leafy views. The food is also every bit as good as the setting. You’ll feast on award-winning European and Asian flavours, such as Wagyu beef with beetroot and truffle or prawn with a scallop dashi.
