Known for fresh oysters and seafood served in an industrial décor setting, Art of Life is making a name for itself as one of the most coveted seats in Fisherman’s Village. As Samui’s first true oyster bar, Art of Life has set the standard extremely high. At the helm of the restaurant is Christophe Scali, a well-known French chef who sources 85% of his products from the esteemed Rungis market in France. All seafood is delivered fresh twice a week or purchased daily from local fishermen on Samui. A true French experience can be had at Art of Life, though the restaurant can still cater to the Thai palate and offer some local fare. Diners are are encouraged to book on a Friday night. artoflifesamui.com, +66 (0) 80 319 1924 108
