The Montien House Restaurant in situated on the beach in the heart of Koh Samui’s bustling resort area of Chaweng and is part of the resort of the same name.
This stunning stretch of white sandy beach provides the picture-perfect ba
ckdrop for relaxed breakfasts, chilled out lunches and idyllic moonlit dinners, which can be even more spectacular during the full moon.
The restauarnt sits on the beachfront and has a large covered, yet open-aired dining space, as well as tables sat right on the sand next to the waterline to really create a memorable tropical dining experience.
The breathtaking beachfront location with panoramic views of the bay is, in itself, enough to make a relaxed and pleasant ambience, but this is further enhanced by the skilled and attentive team of chefs and ever smiling waiters.
At this restaurant the service is as good as the food and this combination of great service, exquisite food and sensational location is extremely hard to find, not just on Koh Samui but anywhere you may travel.
From Monday to Thursday a duo provide live background music to add to the atmosphere and on Sundays a pianist is on hand to entertain.
This exceptional restaurant has been offering delicious and authentic Thai food since 1993, and during this time it has built a strong reputation encouraging many return visitors.
Open seven days a week from 6am until 11pm ensures that the food of your choice is always readily available.
The menu offers both Thai and Western options, and whilst every dish is highly recommended, there are some that really stand out.
Some highlighted dishes to consider would be:
Goong Tod Yam Apple Keaw (Deep fired Prawns served with Spicy green apple salad and cashew nuts). This is not something that you see on many other menus and the combination of flavours and textures really livens the palate.
Tom Yam Goong (Spicy soup with Thai herbs and prawns). Most Thai restaurants will claim this soup as a favourite, and it is one of Thailand’s most popular dishes. You will rarely find a bad version of this soup but some definitely outshine the others and you will not be disappointed here.
Gai Pad Med Mamuang (Fried chicken with cashew nuts). Again this is a dish you will find on most menus but it stands out here as the meals is served in an edible bowl, which not only scores points for presentation but it also really adds to the taste too.
Pla Krapong Kao Tod Sod Ma Kham (Fried Whole Sea bass with Tamarind sauce and crispy Lemon grass) A must-try dish to really appreciate the flavours.
Banana Filled Roti Fried (In batter with palm sugar caramel sauce and coconut ice cream) A mouthwatering way to finish the evening.
Every night you have the additional option of the fresh seafood bbq and if you prefer western food, then you have the choice of pasta, pizza and some exceptional main dishes such as grilled pork tenderloin with apple sauce or the imported T-Bone steak, followed by the deacdence of a Tiramisu or New York Cheesecake.
There really is something to suit all tastes and if you have difficulties selecting the dishes, you could always opt for one of the set menus designed to offer compatible selections.
And finally, there’s also an extensive selection of cocktails and drinks for you to enjoy before, during and of course after your feast of delicious food.
We aim to make your visit a memorable one for all of the right reasons.
