There is a few places on the island where you can experience both fine service and really delicious food. And this one is definitely it!

We had the seafood platters. It is plenty of seafood on there and the price of 480 baht is reasonable for the quality. It was good but I wouldn't call it outstanding. The passion fruit mojito is outstanding and a must have. Service is professional and quick, the place itself looks very nice. I will come again.

The restaurant sits on the beach serving the best seafood on the island. The service was great . Try the yellow curry it's fantastic. Thanks Amanda for two great experiences, only down side is that we are leaving tomorrow. 👍🍸

We had an amazing meal here last night. The drinks were great, appetizers were very tasty and we went for the large seafood platter and it was plenty of food for two big eaters and very delicious. The location is a great setting as well right on the beach. You will not be disappointed!

Elegant atmosphere, the food has good quality, the service is attentive. I enjoyed the barracuda fish but the highlight for me was the passionfruit mojito.

Hello kongtoranindim, Great to hear you had such a nice evening with us. The barracuda fillet in the tomato paste and mango salsa is my favourite on the menu! A lot of people love that fillet because it is a much thicker and firmer fillet like often compared to tuna. I will let our bar staff know how much you... More

I've lived in Thailand for 8 years, eaten at so many places, and this is my fave by far! It's not just a meal really, it's a good night out. The music is chilled, the seats are comfortable, the people who run it are lush, and the food is simply the best seafood I've ever tasted. We're coming back in... More
