“Good restaurant with a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Because it was our last night at Krabi, we decided to splurge a little. We first read about the Hilltop here but only decided to go when our hotel staff passed us a brochure of The Hilltop and told us that there was free transportation up as long as we had a reservation.

We arrived around 6pm, the restaurant had a splendid view but it was still a tad too hot. Once the sun had set, it was much better. Between 630-7pm, most of the tables starting filling up fast.

We ordered the Papaya Salad with Deep Fried Catfish (really delicious!), Grilled Mussels (also another favourite), Pineapple fried rice, omelette and tom yum soup. The prices are definitely expected to be much higher than those around Ao Nang, but still of good value, dishes start around 120baht onwards.

The Hilltop is great if it's your last or for celebrating any occasions.

“Great view, but that's about it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Good place for sunset drinks, but the food was mediocre. Waitstaff was not attentive and would ignore us when we tried to get their attention. Had to move tables because of flying insects, we requested new drinks because ours were filled with bugs, but no new drinks ever came. We brought this to their attention when the bill arrived and after 5 different employees asked us to explain, they eventually took the drinks off of our bill. If you do decide to go, make reservations and they will send a free shuttle to pick you up at your hotel. We arrived just as the sun was setting around 6:30.

“Stunning Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We prebooked a table at the Hilltop and was offered free pickup from our hotel which was an excellent service. We arrived just before the sun set which was stunning and was served with our drinks on the comfy sofas, our order for dinner was taken from there. The menu is all Thai food with excellent choices.
We was taken to our table and that was when it went down hill. The service was really poor and that staff serving us just couldn't be bothered we ordered white wine which was just put on our table with no glasses to drink from, we had to ask for an ice bucket. When our food arrived it was use plonked in front of us. It was a shame as it spoilt it and the staff were silly as they could have walked away with a nice handsome tip but instead we just left the table, and they did not seem particularly bothered when we left.
We was offered the shuttle service back to our hotel and tipped the driver instead.

“Restaurant with the greatest viev we have ever seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

During our stay in Ao Nang we have decided to visit top restaurants from the TripAdvisor, one of them was of course Carniviore Steak and Grill, but while we went there we have meet its owner who told us that his own buissnes is closed becouse of the one month break which took place in the may. By the way he is a very nice and helpfull guy. He adviced us to go and have some rest in the newly opened restaurant 400 m above Carnivore which was The Hilltop.
While we went there we felt so charming atmosphere that we felt like in fairytale....
Views are relly terrific !!!
Design is also well matched with everything that Thailand can offer
We have ordered great and very tasty meals, I don't remember the names of it right now...but still having their's taste on the end of my tongue ...
For sure we will visit that place once again during our next stay in Thailand. This time we will go for a supper ....

“Drinks Party with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Giles and Laura's fantastic outside drinks party, with some amazing food, and the location totally unique.You do need the free taxi ride up as it really is "The Hilltop" . If you are in Krabi, you have to go and try it.
