One day me and my fiance decided to take a break from the thai food and try paella for two, here. We had to book 2 days before for the paella, but we thought that will worth the waiting, especially because we really like Spain and Spanish cuisine. So, after 2 days we went there and the staff was a little suprised regarding the paella, like they didn't even know about it. Eventually, they brought the paella for two. This was more like arroz caldoso. When we told them that the paella should be more crunchy on the bottom (as the owner himself explained to a previews comment written couple years ago by another costumer - you can see it if you scroll down the comments), they said that they are coming from Valencia and that's how they do it there too. Maybe, they should try eating to La Marcelina and see the difference. We also ordered sangria. This was a very sweet juice and you couldn't feel the wine. They explained that they put orange juice (fair enough, but still, the sangria should have another taste, not like they are preparing it). I understand that it's important to cut costs,but not on their costumers' satisfaction. Overall, we felt like we were cheated by the way they acted when we told them our opinion.

I’ve now been here three times on a two week vacation and it is hands down the best place for breakfast or lunch! Healthy, great tasting food served in large portions and by lovely staff.

We spent an evening at the box and was really disappointed. The staff, while nice, were weirdly unnattentive. We ordered water and waited 20 minutes for a glass. Despite it being pretty empty, it was difficult to get the attention of the staff which was very frustrating. The food was very pricey and very average. We don’t mind spending money, but the food just wasn’t up to it. Lots of nice restaurants in Ko Lipe so would really think twice before eating here.

Friendly staff. The Quesadilla is really really good! Not cheap, not so expensive. I will be back there soon.

A great time had here with my friends. Really tasty tapas food. Slightly costly but it is niche food to find on a Thai island. Amazing espresso martinis! They were hard to come by elsewhere.
