Nice spot for a special occassion

My boyfriend and I had dinner here for my birthday. As mentioned by some other reviewers, it is certainly not inexpensive. However, it was probably the best western food I had while in Thailand and some of the best risotto I've had period. The setting is lovely and our waiter Bastian was great. The... read more

We stayed here for a while this month and was not expecting such a great restaurant, having visited the island before on many occasions and tried most of the high end establishments it was a very pleasant surprise to enjoy such wonderful food on our doorstep in the hotel. We had some wonderful dinners here, we stuck to the Thai... More

With the exception of the evening manager, staff was lackluster and disinterested. Despite dining at off-peak times, service was slow and staff had to be reminded multiple times regarding items such as the complimentary bread basket and cutlery. Quality was inconsistent and food lukewarm by the time it reached us. The pastries from the breakfast buffet were some of the... More

The food was about 2 or 3 times the price of other restaurants for the same quality of food. They also charge an extra 10% service fee on top of the already overpriced menu. The service was below average and not what you'd expect from an expensive restaurant. The views and the ambience were great though.

Extensive variety if you're looking for local food or a break from it. Pizzas are thin crust and you can put whatever you want on them. We ate the gazpacho every day. Best morning glory I had in Thailand. Breakfast wasn't included for us, but we're glad we paid for it. Be sure to get a little fruit drink shot... More

Its very rare to stay at a hotel that has great food. Lunch and dinner is open to the public so even if you're not a guest is worth swinging by the Meridian if you're looking for an upscale dining experience with delicious fresh food, impeccable service and breathtaking ambiance plus the view of course. Every thing on the menu... More

We ate in the Latest Recipe restaurant on 2 separate evenings during our stay at Le Meridien, and found the experience to be first class all the way. The setting and ambience is beautiful (almost reminiscent of Key West) with the large wooden 2 story structure, and the tables which all look out over the illuminated pool area and the... More
