We just came across this restaurant and had a very enjoyable experience, they went the extra mile to make us something that was not on the menu. Very nice food and they suggested what would work together. Service was very quick and very friendly, they even have me a signaling happy birthday with a candle and cake make sure you... More

The restaurant wasn't that busy at 8pm low season so we could sit where we liked. The views are probably better in the light however it was still cool to be up over looking the bay. The food was good the guay teaw noodle soup was especially good very peanutty! The menu literally caters for everyone lots of European dishes... More

This restaurant was recommended highly to us, so we went there for dinner. It was good, but we did wait a little longer than I would have liked to be served, we sat for a while before we received menus and we were one of the first ones there. The food was decent. We liked that it had options of... More

We went to eat at this nice place several times, trying different dishes, both thai and vegetarian, but the last time we went, my husband had a terrible food poisoning, due to something he had there. I was so sorry for that, because the other times we really ate good genuine stuuf at Big Mountain, so I think we have... More

See my other review I loved the place when I first came to the island- eat almost everyday with a lovely family running it. They've obviously given up or changed chef/ staff. No one could be bothered to be even a little friendly drinks were slow and poor was poor. I'd been looking forward to returning for 2 years but... More

In order to situate this review I need to explain that Big Mountain is approximately 200 meters from the apartment where my wife Pat and I have been staying, here in Koh Phangan, for the past two months. Big Mountain was also conveniently on the way home after our morning yoga class at AGAMA yoga. Big Mountain is run by... More
