“Upmarket Lunch By the Sea”
Reviewed January 6, 2014 via mobile

With a slightly elevated position this place gives great views of the bay and out to sea. Enjoyed a pleasant lunch here. Menu is varied with mediterannean and imaginative Thai dishes. Expensive by Thai standards but what you'd expect to pay in the UK. Wine list is extensive but prices high.

Service was great and food excellent. Thoroughly recommended.

“Thai and Euro combines”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Was a nice place for a special occasion. The food is beautiful and the setting is grand. The seafood was particularly fresh and in a group a five people we all liked what we ordered.

“A returning customer...”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

I make it a point of visiting here everytime I'm in Phuket. Renovations have been done since my last visit and the place has lost some of it's appeal.

We got reservations seated outdoors for 530, just prior to sunset.

The staff taking our order must have been having a bad day as it seemed like a lot of work just to get our order. She seemed almost combative!

We startred with the scallop carpaccio which was ok. The lobster filled ravioli was good while my tenderloin was very good.

We ordered a cheap bottle of red. Cheap being what it would cost in my home country, but unfortunately in Thailand there is a significant mark up. It was crap.

The weather was cooperative and we were able to enjoy a beautiful sunset. The view is really one of the restaurants selling points.

As far as service, Sam's grill at the Holiday Inn really sets the standard which all other restaurants in this price category should strive for and this place is no exception. Note to the manager, send some staff over to Sam's grill for some pointers.

All told $200 for the bill but I wasn't blown away by any means. Slightly above average meal for beaucoup $$$. Kinda of disappointing visit.

I was gonna give three stars but there was a really cool blues/jazz band playing and they were really good. Really good musicians.
