Cafe del Sol Restaurant, Koh Tao

Cafe del Sol, a well-established restaurant on Koh Tao, offers a delightful fusion of French and Italian cuisine. Situated in Mae Haad, just a short stroll from the main pier, this restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Chef Roberto and his friends, who fell in love with Koh Tao during their travels, decided to make the island their home and founded Cafe del Sol in 1999, making it the first French restaurant on the island. Since its inception, Cafe del Sol’s unwavering aim has been to ensure customer satisfaction.

For breakfast, you can choose from a range of options, including omelettes, set German, English, and American breakfasts, as well as a la carte items like muesli with yoghurt and fruit. They offer a variety of coffee choices, including Americanos, lattes, and cappuccinos. Fresh fruit juices and delicious smoothies are also on the menu. At lunchtime, you’ll find specialty sandwiches such as Napoli (raw ham and mozzarella), Greek (feta cheese, green pepper, and olives), and salami. The dinner menu boasts a selection of salads like Chef or Nicoise salads, appetizers like bruschetta, beef or fish carpaccio, and the Provençal plate (featuring fresh mozzarella, roasted eggplant, and peppers). After savouring your starter, you can indulge in famous steaks, juicy burgers, pizzas with various toppings, or homemade pasta for your main course. To complete your meal, treat yourself to a dessert like crème brûlée, chocolate mousse, or apple tarts, all prepared fresh on-site.

The restaurant provides ample dining space suitable for groups of all sizes and has remained in the same location since its inception
