Looks like a canteen but the food is delicate and glorious. Carpaccio, spinach cakes, crab croquettes, roast salmon with pomelo were all superb small plates.The large green salad was made of the freshest, perfect greens with flowering chives, green sprouting shoots and a wondrous dressing. Great servers.

Visited red snapper on the recommendation of a lanta friend which is always a good sign. The food and service was first class. We ordered 6 tapas dishes which was more than enough and each one was superb after travelling throughout Asia for 3 weeks it was soooo good to taste some new flavours and cooking styles. The tortilla and... More

Just returned from an unplanned meal here this evening and I feel compelled to say how great it was. I had a pork loin with chorizo dish and my friend had a cauliflower fallafal dish that was far better than it sounds! Both meals were exquisite and very reasonably priced for the quality. Everything else that came out of the... More

My friend and I went here for dinner tonight and it was amazing!!! The menu was so creative. We ordered a bunch of the small plates and were not disappointed by a single thing. The flavours of each dish were great. I would try the gnocchi and duck prosciutto for sure! I would eat here every night if I could.... More

I love Thai food but after a few days you may want a break from the local cuisine and if so this is a good place to head to. It's a type of fusion cuisine with the place run by some Dutch guys but it's not a "cutting edge" menu so you are sure to find something you like. We... More

Maybe we came on the wrong day but we found the food to be tasty but over priced for the size of dish (ok it's a tapas bar)... It is Thailand and the prices are pretty high here... Maybe we haven't been away from home for long enough to appreciate this sort of thing yet? Everyone else seemed to be... More

I don't know what in your mind is pretentious,that is an opinion everybody is allowed to have,i'm just doing what I love to do and make a lot of people happy with it. Price,that is maybe difficult to explain,most of the Asian customers and Expats think we are pretty cheap in what we serve,I think we have a fair price... More

The food is really good and the visual presentation is also very good. We were there with 9 people and we made a reservation and got the table we asked for. Upon taking the order he suddenly just left with a OK and half of the table hadn't ordered yet. When he got back with some of the drinks we... More
