“Nice view but way overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

The view is fantastic and the food was nice. Way overpriced for Thailand, not only the food but drinks also. Very poor cocktails and quite inattentive staff. The singapore sling tasted like cordial. As with most places in Thailand the live music was too loud. Go for the view and middle of the road Thai food.

“Come for the view.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

My family and I went to this restaurant for drinks at sunset. We only had coffees and beers so I can't comment on the food. The setting is certainly spectacular - it is on a cliff overlooking Najomtien beach, and I can see it being very popular for romantic get-togethers. I had a look at the menu and there were some very tempting dishes, though I was too full to try any. Prices are on the steep side but to be expected, taking into account the setting. I noticed the corkage price is quite reasonable though.
Service was unremarkable, and to be honest, should have been more slick for this kind of place.
The restaurant isn't always open for lunch so check the times before you go.

“What a view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

This restaurant is about 15 kms outside Pattaya but well worth the trip. It's located on a cliff with great views of Pattaya. Try and get there to see the sun going down - spectacular! Great seafood - we dined on crabmeat samosa's, spring rolls, river prawns baked in butter, stir fried crab with yellow curry and soft shell crab stir fried washed down with a bottle of chianti which was served cold. A truly memorable evening - I will return!

“Romantice Place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Food is so so, price is quite expensive but it's located on by the sea and you can see the sun go down. It's good place for a couple.
