We were so impressed with the lovely setting and delicious food we had when we cycled up to the Ock Pop Tok weaving centre and restaurant from the centre of town. We got chatting with the staff and when we had finished our long, lazy lunch, we asked to see a room in the adjacent villas and immediately booked ourselves in! We were then able to enjoy breakfast and lunch on several other occassions and didn't tire of the food or the fantastic view from the open air restaurant for as long as we stayed.
Food is freshly prepared and recipes carefully thought out, with a good selection of vegetarian options, intersting salads and juices. The setting is beautiful, with an uniterrupted view of the river and a lush garden to lounge in and soak the tranquil beauty. The weaving centre and shop is the reason most people come out here, but the restaurant should be a destination for breakfast and lunch in its own right.
It's not open in the evenings, except for private functions, but they light up the trees in the garden at dusk and there are beautiful woven hagings and paper lanterns, so if you get the chance to stay late, the atmosphere is equally magical. They do yoga classes a couple of evenings a week too, so if you over do the food you can always stay and work it off!
Staff are friendly and happy to chat or leave you alone if that's what you want. Best not to be in a rush as you will want to soak in the view and service is relaxed.
It's a 10 minute cycle ride from town and they also lay on a free tuk tuk transfer from the Ock Pop Tok shops in town. It's a bit of a dusty trek to walk from town, but if you do, the entrance is down a lane opposite Phousi market and well signed.
Highly recommended and very reasonably priced for equivalent fare in town.
