“Well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Probably the best restaurant for choice in Bophut,
We ate there several times and tried a variety of dishes , from fish to meat,
Everything we had was good quality , freshly cooked and plentiful,
Wine was very reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly and more than helpful
I chose my fish from that on view on ice at the front of the restaurant , Sole , and i GOT the ones i chose ! - which does not happen in other places close by !
I highly recommend it !!

“spectacular location - fairly average food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a very pretty / romantic-feeling restaurant with an incredible location on the beach. The food is quite average - regular Thai food - not great, but in fairness, not bad.

The service wasn’t that great with us left waiting 10 minutes for cutlery with our main courses on the table. We tried repeatedly to get someone’s attention and in the end, we simply grabbed cutlery off another table.

As for cost, it was quite cheap, so on the whole, I would probably come back here, if only for the spectacular location.

“Bags of atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The thing this place has going for it is the atmosphere. The design, lighting and colours together with its beachside location is a great plus. Service was efficient and pleasant. The food isn't bad, it's just that you can eat just as good if not better in a whole range of places nearby. Overall a reasonably good experience, but its not a place that we automatically go to on our visits...the last two years for example we have missed it off our list.
