After "discovering" this place, we had went back twice and shall go again. This place was introduced by a Thai friend who suggested Italian food which I flatly declined as in Thailand, I prefer to go to authentic Thai food. But the intended Thai restaurant was dining Italian dining which surpasses many high streets restaurants. Food - every delicious. Price... More

2 appetizers and 3 main dishes each with a distinct flavor and done well, a lovely bottle of wine for a reasonable price, and a bright cheery interior. Good job Basil!

We had a really excellent lunch at this European restaurant. Pan fried foie gras, scallops, three types of really delicious pasta, tiramisu. You are spoilt for choice by the varied menu and we did not even look at the separate pizza menu. Wine prices were not unreasonable, although I would have preferred a simple wine list as opposed to a... More

No one professional staff only student. They are good and polite but not professional waitress. No manager. No hostess for open door. The decoration of restaurant was ugly. I think they was nice before. I ordered foie gras with mango, grill scallop, tuna salad, meat steak from Australian, tiramisu, pannacotta and one expresso coffee. I like foie gras sure. The... More

This place is such a gem! We were in Hat Yai for the night and thought this seemed like a great spot for dinner. My wife and I were with another couple and we ordered a few Pizzas and entrees (sesame salmon was AMAZING). Everything was fantastic and a nice break from the Thai food we'd been eating for days....

Been their for lunch and have got to go back again. Food was fantastic and cheap comparing to five star dining in Europe. I had a very good steak and Italian wine. They were excellent. Heard that they have the other Wine cellar, I must go and visit.

This restaurant is one of the most famous steak restaurants in Hatyai. Good foods but seem to be expensive compare to other restaurant in this town. Salmon steak is my favorite. I love the way they decorate dishes.

We only tend to go here for special occasions because it is a little pricey and is a ways from our house. Having said that, we have never been disappointed with the service or the extremely good quality of the food. I would recommend ordering a pasta dish and one of their salads. Well worth the trip I wish I... More
