My boyfriend and I visited here a week into our trip to spoil ourselves a little. Upon arrival we were 'greeted' by a particularly rude lady who pointed out that we may not get a seat as we hadn't booked a table- it was more or less empty with maybe 2 reserved tables. Smiles and chat were minimal unlike other... More

Lovely restaurant and staff. Food was good but not very big portions for what you pay. But would be ideal for an occasion. :)

In short; what more could you wish for?! This is something that the Thais do so very well, an unassuming restaurant that in any other tourist location could well be a disappointment astounds with the quality of the food and the level of service. Yes, there is the language barrier and we are not talking three star standard, but there... More

This is a place to visit for some really good food. We went for dinner in a large group. The service and food was really good. Can't really specify on one particular good dish everything was really tasty.

Get there around sunset for an amazing view as well as great food. We ordered five appetizers to share between us and they were served quickly and stated great. As good as the food, the atmosphere was incredible. We shared a tasty, rich chocolate cake over ice cream for dessert, wow! We saw the sunset as the waves crashed on... More

i have been to Patong more than 6 times and never eaten at the Restaurant. What a mistake. The location is excellent with magnificent views back down into Patong Harbor. The setting is delightful and the service and staff are friendly and efficient. Great food menu with Tapas being the main choices. Would definitely recommend you eat here at least... More

I came here with a business group as part of an organised dinner. The location is excellent, the views of the ocean were beautiful and the Espresso Martini's awakening. The food was good, great by Thailand standards but really nothing to write home about compared to Australia.

Bit disappointed with your points as you seemed to enjoy everything. This is Thailand and not Australia. We really try to set our standards high for Phuket and use the best in imported product, some from Australia. Of course Australia has all the home grown product at its fingertips. More

Setting is best in Patong. Beautiful all white restaurant overlooking beach with great if expensive ( by Thai standards). We paid around 350 baht per dish for tapas.
