Romantic setting with beachfront view

This somewhat pricey restaurant is great. The sea view dining by the sea experience comes complete with attentive staff and tasty food. Seafood is fresh and appropriately sized. Spice levels of dishes are custom-made according to preference. Delicious and romantic. A must try!

Partner and I went for lunch twice, once was a western menu option and the second was Thai. The service was warm and friendly and the view overlooking the sea is impressive, but sadly the food is pretty ordinary and underwhelming. Maybe it's better for dinner.

Went for dinner tonight. There were only 3 other tables occupied. Ordered our food and drinks. Finished our first drink so we ordered another one. After an hour the restaurant was filling up and people who arrived after us had already received their food. I asked where ours was and was told 5 minutes away, they had many orders. After... More

My husband and I had a great time dining in here! I had 500-gram lobster and he had 500-gram crab, both food were superb! Mai Tai was served in a real pineapple fruit. The place is very relaxing and romantic, you see and hear Patong Beach as you enjoy your food. They have wifi and staff speak enough English. Highly... More

My wife and I had dinner at this place and we were astounded. She ordered a whole lobster and I ordered a whole crab. They were pricey yet they were worth paying for because they were a live catch from an aquarium. Fresh is always good. The service was ok, but the ocean view is what covered the moment of... More

We stayed in north Patong and ate at Baan Kalim three times. All three times we were very satisfied with both food and service. Great place along the beach overlooking the ocean. Big variety in food from thai, sea food, pasta to great steaks. Good prices starting at 180 BHT for thai dish.

The food is very good. Staff pushes larger portions/weights on the fresh seafood as it is sold per kg. View is nice. A little pricey, but good quality and very easy.

Located at the end of Patong in Kathu, with outside seating overlooking the ocean. The seafood dishes our group of 4 had were good, however be prepared to pay high prices for the lovely setting!
