We went there for drinks and diner, and didn't expect such an all over amazing experience. Everything was amazing from the atmosphere, to the location, to the music, the drinks, the service and especially the food. Not to expensive either. Definitely THE place to go in koh phangan if not all of Thailand.

So we return here after a year, looking forward to the great food that we had before, but we didn't really find it. I remember Thai Shrimp cakes being out of this world but this time dare i say a little plain. I ordered barracuda steak and to be honest it wasn't the best piece of fish I've ever had... More

We went there twice and the food is pretty good, try their home made crab cakes, they are extra tasty. Overall good fish, seafood and crab dishes. Location is great with a relaxed atmosphere. Why not 5 stars? Simply because the beach lounge just 5 min down the road is even better and although we really liked the restaurant the... More

A really cosy place with excellent service and really good, tasty food! It's a bit expensive but worth it if you're looking for good food. The ambiance is very nice and the kitchen feels fresh. Would definetly visit again!

Found this place on tripadvisor. It is one km from the hotel I am staying at. We went for dinner. I got the shrimp cakes and the yellow curry crab. The shrimp cakes were good but the yellow curry is amazing! So good, it is a lot of work. It took me until half way through to realize that I... More

The high score on tripadvisor warranted a visit and surely we would get disappointed because seriously, how good could it be. Pretty damn good it would turn out. The atmosphere in the restaurant is amazing situated on the beach. Staff was very welcoming and always checked up on us during our meal. That brings me to the food which also... More
