Waste of money

This USED to be my favorite restaurant in Asia. My GF and I went there on Valentine's Day for dinner and were very disappointed. First, the servers neither understood English nor the menu. I had to ask 3 times just to get bread and water as we waited for our orders to arrive. The crab cakes that my... read more

The position of this restaurant overlooking Kata Noi beach puts it in a separate class. The gentle piano music or Jazz Band (much more accompished than the Pianist) gives a pleasant ambiance. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. I think they seen almost apologetic at giving you the Thai menu with the western one, I don't know why I... More

We used the only booking system to reserve a table for 2 and received a quick reply confirming our booking and reminding us of the dress code. When we arrived we impressed by the fantastic view and excellent if a little over attentive service. We had 3 fantastic courses selected across the two menus and really enjoyed our meal. The...

Great location and food, with happy hour drinks from 6-7pm. Pricing is expensive for Thailand but certainly no more than you would pay at home for a great quality meal.

2 days prior we called in and booked a table for 2. Selected one that looked out over the sea anticipating watching the setting sun in an idealic setting. Booked the courtesy car for a 18:20 pickup at our hotel. Wonderful. Dressed and then went down at the appointed time to meet the car. And we waited. And waited. And... More

This restaurant is an all time favourite. It has both Thai and western menus, both are excellent. The Thai has less expensive options and has all the classics. I have to say my favourite is the western though, The lobster ravioli is to die for! For those that know what you would pay for this standard of quality in ingredients... More
