Its a really nice location at the beach in Surin. Food tough is medium good. Nothing that surprice me nor make me disapointed. Price level is little bit average Thai, but for the location it is in the range of the other restaurants.

Nice pasta to be had here for those who should tire of Thai (really?). But it is nice to eat a light pasta dish in the heat of the day... and I had a lovely lunch there when relaxing on my own.

Good quality pasta/ pizza/ soup. Nice environment with very good service. Popular with local expats, and as they are a finicky bunch this really says something! Pasta de chef/ ravioli with duck liver and truffle cream, is a highlight/ minestrone soup is also very good....More

As with most people, the Thai food in Surin is delicious but a change was required after a week or so. We chose Cefalu, as we all fancied an Italian meal and we were glad that we did so. Owned by a genuine Italian, everything...More
