“Terrible service, Terrible food and very overpriced.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

Not normally one to write a review but this place was terrible. We ordered seafood to be cooked on the barbecue, prawns, lobster etc... All the food was tasteless, some of it cold and the majority over cooked. We had to send back the squid as it was in edible (horricfully over cooked). They did replace it but it still wasn't very well cooked. The meal cost just over 2000 baht, I would have felt robbed paying 200 baht. The produce does look very good before they cook it, seems to me that they are just over cooking it which is a shame, as the setting on the beach was lovely. I would have to say that this is the worst place that we've eaten at during our stay on Thailand where we've eaten street food in bangkok and meals at the airport which have all been significantly more enjoyable. I would suggest they need to improve their customer service skills along with their cooking skills. As they have a lovely setting and could be a fantastic resturant. In the mean time I would avoid this place and go the the hut resturant at the other end of fishermens village. Family run resturant serving fantastic Thai food for a very good price, lots of very good reviews can be found on trip adviser for this place.

“Music way too loud!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

We came across this restaurant when looking for somewhere to eat quite late (10:30pm) this was one of the only places still open ( i think they closed early as it was the fun moon that night) my husband and I had the cheeseburger and it was lovely, the meat was great quality. the staff were very helpful and efficient and they were keen to chat to chat with us. the band were way too loud and was hard to hear each other over the music. Also towards the end of our meal they were very keen to get us out and made it clear they wanted to go home so we were made to feel quite uncomfortable, but overall was a nice meal with a lovely view of the sea.

“Great Band and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Lovely restaurant with good food, both Thai and Indian feature. The Larb salad was best I had on trip. What makes this a bit different if a band that are really good so you have entertainment as well. Busy and fun with lovely service. Went twice!
