“Absolutely fantastic! ”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

If we had to eat at one place only, this would be it! The best restaurant we have been in Kata! The staff is great, the food is amazing, the cocktails are fabulous and so is the atmosphere! This place deserves to be number one! Would recommend this without thinking twice!

Thank Vonkhan

“very small portion sizes, food nothing to rave about”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We went for the fixed menu option. The food was nothing to rave about considering the fancy price. The portion size for the main course was small.
there is a good view of the kata beach from the restaurant, so i would recommend this place if you want to have a drink with nice view.

Dear zitkango,

Thank you very much for your review and for visiting our restaurant. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the beautiful view from our restaurant over Kata beach yet surprised to hear your comments regarding our set menu. We often receive very positive reviews about the quality of our food as you can see on this forum and therefore felt disappointed to hear you didn't think the food was anything to rave about.

The menu you chose to have is indeed a tasting menu offering a sampling of our signature dishes. As we also serve homemade bread with French butter in the case of the French set and complimentary amuse bouche and petits fours at the beginning and at the end of the meal for both the French and the Thai set menu, we feel that the portions are suitable for one to enjoy the four courses of these menus plus the complimentary nibbles without feeling too full.

We hope you will give us another chance if you return to Phuket.

We celebrated our 35 th wedding anniversary at this restaurant and it was sensational. Food was beautiful and the wine list is amazing.
The location at Kata Beach is very beautiful, the staff really looked after us on our special evening.
Best meal we have had in Thailand and we have been to phuket 6 or 7 times.
Thank you to all the staff.

“Perfect Evening”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Had a wonderful meal here. Booked a table which overlooked the sea and beach. Very relaxed, romantic setting.
The staff were friendly and the service excellent through the whole evening.
We chose the Thai Set menu which was delicious. We did not go for the wine pairing but had a bottle of wine. Prices similar to a good restaurant in the uk.
One of the best meals and evenings we had on our first visit to Thailand. The restaurant arranged a complimentary transfer back to our hotel. When we come back, we will definitely return!

“Superb Food on the Bay”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This was perhaps the best restaurant we ate at during our stay….. you know a place is going to be good when you find it hard to make a choice between any of the dishes!! Whether Thai or Euroepan style, every dish we had was fantastic….. Book and make sure you ask for seat by the bay…. Free shuttle to pick up and drop off
