“Amazing views and mostly good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

You really can't go wrong for a spectacular sunset view at this fine restaurant.

The Thai food seemed higher quality than many restaurants around town, but nothing spectacular about the preparation. It was just pretty average to okay.

The shuttle service to the restaurant is a nice service, as the tour company we used a lot of in town had them pick us up at their office down the hill.

The views were magnificent, overlooking the coast and mountains as the sun fell. It seemed as many people were there to get photos of the view as there were eating, and for good reason.

We arrived fairly early, so the staff was very attentive. I heard later that we missed some good live music that started just after we left back to the beach.

The free shuttle back into town was also a nice touch.

Definitely a romantic place to go for a special night while at the beach!

“One of the must in dinning experience in Krabi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

You should select food from recommended menu, otherwise, you will miss a lot of WOW!.

You should reserve seats in advance, otherwise, you will never have a chance to dine there!

“Great night out with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

This place was not far from our hotel so we took a trip up there to experience the sunset. The service was a bit slow but then they were very busy and we were on holiday so didn't fuss. The food was good and view was great. Its well worth a visit.

“Disappointing chaos”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

This place was recommended by our hotel for a special last night meal for my family. Best bit of the evening was the "popemobil" that they send to your hotel to collect you. Once we arrived the service chaos began - wrong table, dishes at wrong time, slow service etc. Lots of staff but all rather chaotic. The food is not much better than you get in town but more expensive. I wouldn't go back.

“Great view, above average food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We had a nice night up here while in Ao Nang. The restaurant provided transportation. The views up here are great and you should plan to arrive before sunset so you can enjoy the view fully. The staff were very nice and hospitable, even if it was a bit difficult to get a dry martini. (You can't always have it all.) But the food was very good, if not much different than what you can get elsewhere in the area. There was a man playing English/American pop songs on an acoustic guitar during dinner which was a bit kitschy, but fun. In short, you're not going to have a life-changing meal here, but the whole ambiance of the place is great. It's not cheap (not even by U.S./Euro standards) but if you're looking to get off the strip at Ao Nang and have a nice outdoor meal with an amazing view, I don't think you could do much better.
