“Pleasant place with big price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

In the end of Thai village, you will find a perfect place with good view and atmosphere (a lot of furniture, music). It's very comfortable! Stuff speak in English. There you can find European and Thai food. European cuisine as usual it's good. But Thai food not so tasty, cause it's made not in Thai style.

“Average Western place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

We went there after reading all these praising recommendations about the place so maybe my expectations where too high. Also after more than two weeks around the costs I have high standards now about sea food.
Place is definitely on the high end of food options in bang bao, no doubt about it. Stylish, nice design and professional English speaking service.
With that, for that prices (higher than the average) you also expect a more professional food. Cocktails where OK but nothing to write home about. I had a deep fried barracuda with sweet and sour sauce. I had it already before in other places which did a better job. Food wasn't bad just not interesting or exciting (and it can be). My friend took the prawns which where also good but not more than that. We paid around 1,000 baht for these two with two cocktails and a shake. I had better dinners for less/same money already.
If you're after western Thai cuisine that's your place but if you want an authentic dinner, there are better options on the pier.

“Tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Food were very tasty with nice condition, we had sea food bbq for two persons, beef milky tom yum, beer for him & cocktail for me.
The restaurant has decorated by Buddha, but there was nothing concerned for Buddhism. Actually it is not allowed to drink alcohol for Buddhist who is in five precepts of Buddhism.

“Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

It's not the cheapest place in Bang Bao but for sure the coolest. And the gimmick with the two tables with free view to the water is very nice

“Nice restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Nice restaurant. Prices are quite high, but the food quality is worth it. The waiters are polite. Original layout tables. In my opinion one of the best sea food restaurants on the island.
