Very nice interior. Waited an hour for main course. A portion of rice cost €5.50 which is excessive.

Mediocre at best. Had better and cheaper. Nice surroundings. Good staff, if slow. Wouldn't go back. Food taste is our thing and it just want there for us. Minced chicken dish is one to avoid on the menu.

We were staying in the hotel with our three teenagers and gave them the choice of dinner venue, Thai won. Couldn't find a table outside which was disappointing, but out fault for arriving without booking. Inside, even next to the windows it's very dark and a bit oppressive which considering there is lovely view over the harbour just 20m away... More

Fantastic thai food, authentic and delicious. Would recommend beef salad and minced chicken - if you like your food spicy. Great service

We stayed at the Hilton last year and went to this restaurant twice over eight nights. This year we also went twice over nine nights. Yes we love Thai food and they do it very well. But outside on the deck, in a quiet lower corner overlooking the marina, on a warm summers night, is just a great setting, especially... More

The Blue Elephant was worth a visit, with a flowing river full of coy carp a table by the river was very romantic and private. May I recommend the Tom Yam Koong clear spicy shrimp soup for starters and the steamed fillet of sea bass was majestic. Many Thai cocktails are available but the Isis local chardonnay is excellent as... More
