“Fantastic value for money”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Delicious selection of salads as a starter, then as much meat as you can handle sliced off the giant skewers. Very awesome for a couple of carnivores like my husband and I :-)

There was Beef tenderloin, Another type of beef, Chicken drumsticks, pork neck, pork ribs, and an amaaazing cinnamon and brown sugar marinated pineapple! my mouth waters again just thinking about it. This was followed up by a fruit plate each for dessert (not that it was terribly needed, we still indulged and it was delicious too)... all for about 1,100 Baht.

I would totally rate this 6/5 except that the last meat we received was very undercooked - however this is probably because i requested the beef tenderloin (AGAIN, it was SOoooo delicious i couldn't help it!!!).. so that put a little bit of a dampener on the meal - but again, I think this was more my fault than anything.

Final note is to reserve a table as they reserve the tables closest to the windows inside and the edge of the balcony for amazing sunset views.

Go here if you're stying in Karon and want a decent feed.

“Management here slack to say least”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

El Gaucho restaurant by Movenpick. If you wish to eat downstairs in the sand pit, you can only order pizzas. Then you have no choice but to eat upstairs where everything including water a 90bts small bottle. The service when we ate was slow, couldn’t give a dam attitude and food not even as good. Management here slack to say least. Manager left at 8pm when restaurant was busy nobody left in charge only the waiter. Don’t eat here unless you want to be ripped off.

“Stay away”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

A beautiful place, yes, but completely devoid of any substance. The food was flavorless and overpriced, and the service was non-existent. I enjoy service that isn't overbearing, but at this place the staff was completely missing for 20 minutes at a time. I was tempted to walk to a 7-11 just to get myself another drink. If you really want to check this place out, stick to their sand bar on the first floor and don't step foot in their restaurant upstairs.

“Great Meal”
Reviewed June 26, 2011

Hard to believe there are no reviews, My Wife and I had Dinner here during our stay in this Resort , What a Fascinating way to serve your meat, Portions of different meat are cooked on large skewers, which are then brought over to your tabe and sliced off onto your plate,juicy and fresh, FANTASTIC. They also have an Al acarte Menu and from the balcony beatiful Ocean views of the SUNSET at KARON.
