This is an Italian with a small menu but excellent food. We had 3 courses and a bottle of wine sat on the terrace. Lovely staff with very good service. Worth visiting.

Gorgeous sunset views of Bophut beach. A wonderful wine selection at typical Thai prices. An Italian and Mediterranean menu. Very good food. Great flavours. Friendly English speaking staff. Great atmosphere. Would definitely come back again.

The staff is very friendly, attentive and competent, the scenery is picture-perfect, the food is otherwordly, and the wine list is fantastic. The owner Yuri makes you feel at home for a relaxing meal. What more could you want?

To call this a beach cafe may be a bit misleading as the food is top quality restaurant standard. We have been several times and the food, service and location are all outstanding. The steak was one of the best I've had and their lamb dish was also excellent. The menu has some nice choices and the wine list is... More

A prime location on the seafront this place is in fact a reasonable restaurant although pricey for what you get, even if you take into account the excellent views ! We had the asparagus soup for starter and it was great ! The Angus Stake Teriaki was in fact excellent in itself and so was the Australian Short Rib, but... More

This was our first visit this year - but we've been coming here for the last 6 years. It has lost none of its charm - the views and ambiance are brilliant. Yuri the owner is a brilliant host and are always made to feel as if we have one home. The staff are very attentive. The food is special.... More

We ate here last night, decided not to have a large starter so chose the brochetta, very nice. As we've eaten mostly Thai food since we've been here, tonight I chose the lamb shoulder which was super tender, cooked for ten hours! Other choices were beef teriyaki, again very good and the sea bass, excellent! The restaurant is more expensive... More
