A themed dinner evening is offered on a weekly cycle, which adds variety - but it is buffet style dining.

As you will get from all Centara restaurants, great range of food types for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also have themed food nights with great food, however, a bit pricey if you are taking the kids for a light meal with drinks.

Nice restaurant with air con to keep you a little cooler, good selection of food and drink, although a little more expensive than eating out. dress code is relaxed so no need to wear trousers, just not beach wear.

A hotel restaurant。Dinner under live romantic guitar gives you different experience。 A good choice for those who do not enjoy noisy nightlife in Phuket。

At The Cove anytime during the daily and their opening hours you will find a smiling face waiting for you to seat you down. In the morning the breakfast is not lacking of anything, you want cereal, eggs, fruits, pastries, bread, bacon, sausages, cold-cults, etc. The Cove at lunch time serves a tremendous variety of meals to satisfy all types...

This restaurant has a beautiful breakfast. More than happy to oblige when I asked if I could have some roasted tomatoes which had been available on our first morning but not the next. Also did a cooking class which was held in this restaurant - great fun!

If you can't be bothered heading out, this is a great alternative to staying in. Fantastic breakfast with a wonderful selection. I'm fussy when it comes to poached eggs and I'm happy to say, the team here delivered :-) A different theme each night for dinner with entertainment to match the theme. Good value and great for kids too.
