Dr Frogs Restaurant, Koh Samui

Dr. Frogs is a place to dream about; it has a beautiful location which couldn't really be any better. Perched right on top of a cliff, the restaurant commands stunning views over the entire bay of Chaweng. It's right next to one of the island's most popular viewpoints, on the ring-road between Chaweng and Lamai, and offers excellent Italian, Thai and fusion dishes.

The atmosphere is almost Mediterranean; once you're seated you'll be lulled by the easy-going feel of the place. It opens early for long and summery breakfasts, where a whole range of delights awaits, with everything you could desire from eggs any style to salmon. Luxury items fill the breakfast menu, and the standards for lunch and dinner are every bit as high.

No-one will ever be able to explain to you why the restaurant bears its strange name, but not to worry. Dr. Frogs is professionally run, and in the dozen years of its operation has risen to become one of the island's most sought-after dining destinations. And it's now set to rise to further heights. Despite all its successes to date, the owners decided to thoroughly overhaul the food and menu. Repeat guests may be surprised to find out that there have been so many changes – but all of them are good!

The new chef heading up the kitchen is John Des Biens, who has owned and managed numerous restaurants in his native Canada and in the USA. He is actively involved in the bio-dynamic movement, and now brings his expertise to Dr. Frogs. Chef Des Biens has also been personal chef to such artists as Ziggy Marley, David Crosby, The Beach Boys, BB King and many others.

The international side of the menu showcases his style. Keeping local seasonal produce at its core, the food is filled with fresh, robust flavours. For appetizers, opt for dishes such as Pan-Fried Frogs' Legs with chilli paste, garlic, lemongrass and fresh lime, or the opulent Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns Flambéed in Sambuca and gravy cream with spinach, garlic and slivered red onion, served on a crispy potato haystack.

For mains, the Seafood Platter for two is highly recommended. It comes with mussels, clams, giant Silva tiger prawns and poached white snapper. It's served with jasmine-scented coconut rice and local seasonal vegetables with white wine tarragon compound butter.

The fusion-style dishes are equally delightful. Think Angel Hair Pasta and Barbecue Duck with Thai vegetables and pineapple in green curry sauce. On the Thai side, you'll find lots of choices, with favourites from the different regions of the country, all expertly cooked and presented. Round off a meal here with a chef's recommendation such as the delicious Toasted Coconut Banana over Mango Sorbet which is then flambéed tableside with dark rum – what could be more romantic? Alternatively, desserts like the Tiramisu Parfait will be irresistible to many.

“…no matter what you choose, everything's been designed
with only one thing in mind – diner satisfaction"

The seafood used at Dr. Frogs has been certified by Ocean Wise, a program that helps to ensure that ocean life will be abundant for generations to come. Sustainable seafood can be defined as species that are caught or farmed in a way that ensures the continuing health and stability of that species, as well as the greater ecosystem. The restaurant also uses locally harvested vegetables and fruit, and bio-dynamically raised meat. There are also a number of vegan and vegetarian items on the new menu. No matter what you choose, everything's been designed with only one thing in mind – diner satisfaction.

The brilliant setting and food makes this venue ideal for gatherings of all kinds, from parties through to weddings and receptions.

With a vibe that encourages you to linger, Dr. Frogs guarantees sumptuous food and drink in an extremely romantic setting. Not surprisingly, many diners come back over and over again.

The restaurant is open from 7:00 am to 11:00 am for breakfast, and from midday for lunch and dinner. The kitchen closes at 11:00 pm.
