We were a party of 4 who visited Cafe 69 early one Tuesday evening in the hope they could accommodate us. Fortunately they could -being low season helped- as the place is quite small. The owner, and he's the chef too, greeted us and explained the items on their "specials" board, which was actually more extensive than their regular menu. We shared 3 starters including little pastry packets filled with delicious minced chicken in a green curry sauce, salmon and crab cakes with a lovely sauce, and papaya and soft-shelled crab. All were brilliant and one could easily have a mix of starters as an entire meal. The food is best described as modern Thai, with a twist. For main courses we had a selection of Beef curry Panang style, which was unfortunately far too large and a very rich sauce, and a sea bass fish dish which was excellent, and a soft-shelled crab with black pepper which was also rated as very good.
They serve a range of drinks, including exotic cocktails served in a mixture of odd vessels which was a nice effect. The decor is a little unusual- a sort of Austin Powers theme- and a variety of seating from sofa style to small tables and chairs. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and we would definitely go back but would likely order a selection of starters instead. In season, reservations would be compulsory.
