This restaurant might be on the high end for some backpackers, but is great place to visit and hang out for an evening. Also has the Best Cooking School in Phuket. The owners are super friendly and welcoming. They had a large bouncy castle in the front yard for the kids to play on the night we were there. Even... More

Friends had visited this restaurant the previous year and so we decided to give it a try. The venue is stunning...an old governors mansion...and is lit up at night. Inside the decor is equally lovely. We had a cocktail at the bar just inside the entrance and ate on the verandah outside. The food was tasty and I could taste... More

I really recommend the tasting menus. There were 8 of us and we really enjoyed the fabulous service and the delicious food. Beautiful setting, linen, chinaware and flatware compliment this unique restaurant. A must.

Undoubtedly one of the most visually appealing large scale properties in old Phuket, and with an equally attractive interior decor. Looking forward to a culinary experience based on reputation and the cooking school we were not nearly so impressed with the food itself which didn't justify the cost. In our case nearly £40 per head for the fixed price menu... More
