In 1999, Cafe del Sol established itself as the inaugural French restaurant on Koh Tao. With over two decades of experience, the restaurant promises delicious meals at affordable prices. The restaurant boasts its own bakery, ensuring a selection of freshly baked bread, an array of pastries, and delightful sweet treats alongside a comprehensive menu featuring appetizers and main courses. Many guidebooks, including Lonely Planet, have reviewed the excellent food at this well-recognized restaurant over the years.

The restaurant is open throughout the day, offering breakfast and lunch, in addition to evening meals. Recently revamped, Cafe del Sol is spacious, light, airy, and comfortable. Delivery and takeaway services are also available. 


Owner and head chef Roberto employs family recipes inherited through generations from Italy and France. He is passionate about cooking and aims to provide all of his customers with authentic tastes and flavours. The menu comprises starters, salads, pizzas, pasta, steaks, French and Italian specialties, and vegetarian dishes. Additionally, a diverse selection of grilled dishes and fresh fish options are available, along with delectable desserts.

It is one of the few restaurants on the island to have a full children’s menu. So those travelling with families on Koh Tao can be assured of a range of kids’ options and portion sizes. 


A standard drinks menu comprising soft drinks, local beers, house wines, and a selection of spirits is available. In addition, Cafe del Sol has a wine list offering a range of red, white, and rose options who would prefer to buy by the bottle.
