“Favourite restaurant during holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

After reading tripadvisor reviews and comments, we came here an hour before sunset and found a perfect spot. The views were breathtaking, best sunset I have ever seen, it had a very relaxed atmosphere and the food/cocktails were very reasonably priced and of very good quality. Perfect for couples, it was very romantic, especially when the candles came out after sunset.
The service was superb. 10 out of 10.
We booked through our hotel for a taxi there and were a little worried (it was our first night in Phuket) on how we would get back. But when we were leaving they ushered us into a waiting taxi which was much cheaper than our hotel's apparently competitive rate! There was another couple standing with us who were going to Kata too so they put us all in the same taxi to reduce the cost further!

“Pleasant discovery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Thanks to a buddy who recommended this place, it had a great sunset view as we feasted on the very reasonable price dishes and out of the world cocktails. The piña colada is a must try and definitely good when my girlfriend swapped her coconut juice with my cocktail and later rained praises by another friend who ordered one for herself. Overall a great restaurant with a great view and excellent food. Definitely a must come back in my next trip to Phuket. Get there by 530pm to ensure a good seating location to watch the sunset.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

After beach bar is located beside kata Noi beach. I went there each day of my pukhet holiday for seeing the sunset drinking a cocktail and eating appetizers. The last evening with my wife decided to have a dinner there. That was the best dinner in pukhet ... Go there people!

“Great view, good food, cheap prices - expensive to go there by Tuktuk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

We stopped here on our last night with our rental car. We came after sunset, but the views were still spectacular. The variety of food on the menu so big, that I expected low quality. I was quite surprised how good the food was.
I especially liked the fried rice with vegetables and the four companions (four types of steamed vegetables), the latter weren´t as tasteless as at other places.
Prices are cheaper than down in Kata. A bowl of rice is just 20 THB compared to usually 40 THB, that you pay in Kata center.
Staff is nice.
The only problem is getting there, if you don´t have a rental car. When we left we asked how to get there by Tuktuk. They said it would be 200 THB from Kata one way. When we tried a couple of days later all Tuktuk-drivers asked for 300 THB. We thought, that was too expensive and didn´t go there again.

“Another must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Went after the view point and sat on the deck and had a couple of beers and watched the sun set.. Very awakening for the spirit, food looked good at good prices we didn't eat cause of a very late lunch
