“Enjoy dinner with the view of sunset & sea”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

I have been this restaurant many times with my family but always busy, better to make a reservation in advance other you have to wait almost 1hr or more.

The atmosphere is really..really good, there’s different levels along the cliff and you will enjoy the view of sunset & sea

Price of foods is a bit expensive, taste is normal but atmosphere is superb !!

“Nice view, shame about the food.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

The restaurant is located around 15 Km from Pattaya just off Sukhumvit Road in Huay Yai. It is set into the cliff with terraces that offer a stunning view. There is also some seating in the main building. Out on the terraces there is little or no shade and at night there are a lot of mosquitoes.

The food itself is not particularly good and some was totally inedible and well over priced, very disappointing in this regard, the service is appalling and the staff uncaring and rude.

Adequate car parking available, just don't take any notice of the idiot on duty there who is absolutely clueless.

Overall it's worth going but only for the view possibly with a mediocre coffee. It seems to attract a crowd that believe it is the place to be seen.....

“Great view, horrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

The view is great, coming down from the cliff, overlooking the sea.

The food, mainly seafood, is okay, I wouldn't fantastic, but not bad either.

But then the service.... a disaster. Waiting, wrong order, out of stock, nobody looks, don't understand, still don't understand, ask again, wait..... Difficult to find worse service in and around Pattaya.

“Impressive view restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

If you have a chance to visit Pattaya, Thailand, don't miss a chance to have a nice dinner here. The restaurant locates on top of the cliff looking over the Jomthien beach, next to Pattaya beach. Especially, at the evening before the sunset. You can see the sun setting over the sea without anything block the view. it is also good for family as well as couple. The food is good and not expensive. Service is also good.You can see the map in their web, not the google map. I do not know why the google map gives the different location. I tried the web, but sorry in Thai. You can check with the hotel you stay in Pattaya. Enjoy it.

“Average Thai food with good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013 via mobile

This place is popular for sunset view and it opens at 4pm on weekday and 2pm on weekend. We arrived early and the good tables are already taken so please make sure to be early and beat the crowd.

The Thai food was ok, not bad and not memorable. The price is set on the high side but the portion is also big. Anyway i think the pricing is all for the location and the atmosphere. The view was very nice with the cool sea breeze. Overall, it was an enjoyable meal at rimpa lapin.
