“Terrific views, but the food & service ???”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We decided to finally have dinner at this restaurant after 3 visits to Karon. The prices didn't deter us but the lack of service and lack of english skills did. When the food finally arrived, the servings were small - we couldn't be bothered waiting for dessert. The food was tasty, the views were fabulous, the wine prices were outrageous. We would not return to this restaurant. An after thought, the walk into the restaurant is extremely lengthy and steep, when we left we took the stairs down to the beach.

“The secret cliff”
Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

Not a hard place to find at all and the view at lunch time is amazing . Dinner time would be magical with the lights , sitting on the deck. Went with a girl friend for lunch and food was lovely and a good wine selection . Stop in for a drink and take in the view or it would be a great romantic spot for dinner . Will be taking my husband when he comes home.

“Lovely meal at the Secret Cliff”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We visited this restaurant twice as food was to a very good standard. The starters were excellent and beautifully displayed. The main courses were also very good and all in all good value for money.

“Good at he view,the staff,the price..This restaurant only need to work on the chef..:)”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

I went there for dinner with my boyfriend..Staff are very friendly and we have been help to all the need,answered to all the question and a bit of a joke from them too..
We ordered 3 dishes of snack as we were not that hungry and wanted to enjoy the drink first. The food are quite plain,the dish decoration was nice,the presentation was good..But seriously,improve on the taste..I mean it's not that bad..but compare to the look,we expect a better taste..

We are hoping to stay there on our next visit..:)

“Not going to be secret for long”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

This was such a great surprise. The resort on two sides of the road and we stayed on the other side to the lobby.Arrived in late and ordered room service and it was incredible and fast service.To ride to our room by golf buggy was new and different.
The breakfast was great and the omelettes the best I have eaten so light and fluffy. But then there was the view could not get enough of it day or night. Diner was also just wonderful. Can't wait to go again.
