“Average food, rude staff but beautiful views”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We went here on our way up to Promthep Cape viewpoint. After working out how to get to the seating area from the front of the restaurant (head through the back and keep on going through the garden!) we sat down for some food. The waitress came over and practically dumped the menus on the table and stalked off. She came back with a miserable face asking for drinks orders, we had ice coffee and the kids had some fruit punches. All were watery and not good. Based on that, we just ordered some chicken stay sticks for a snack so we could move on elsewhere if they weren't good. Needless to say, the chicken was just warm and rubbery. The dip was awful too. Quite expensive for what we ordered.
Won't be going back here for sure. Staff quite abrupt and not interested in engaging with you at all, not even a smile in the land of smiles!
Absolutely beautiful views though.

“Wonderful view, excellent local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

It was one of the most pleasant surprises we had in Phuket! A great open view with green setting - okay maybe a bit rustic compared to many other clean, modern, posh hotel restaurants with view, but it felt like a Miyazaki Hayao film setting, we loved it. Food was very good, not too much salty, just nice at absolutely reasonable price - tried beef with basil & chili, mango salad, seafood dry curry and glassessss of Margarita. All wonderful!!
This place should remain at its state!!!

“Views and food, food and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

After walking through about 300 meters of garden, we got to the restaurant and were immediately taken by the scenery. A great location high up overlooking the ocean and surrounding bays.
Menu was extensive and service outstanding, especially in explaining what some of the dishes were. When the food started arriving it almost surpassed the great views.
In short, a very good restaurant that I will definitely be going back to.
