“Modest meal at exorbitant price”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

Our first meal on arrival at kamala and eagerly anticipating!! Picturesque location overlooking beach, seating and table modest. We had starter and main course with a quaffable wine, nothing remarkable but ok. We didn't realize until the bill arrived that wewere experiencing something out of the ordinary.
The following evening we dined on the beach for a quarter of the price!!
In retrospect the fault was ours, as prices were on the menu, but first night enthusiasm meant we were not attentive to cost!!

Food was great but we went at 2:30pm so pretty dead. The portions are a bit small but good.

“Great food and better view!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2011

We had breakfast at Rockfish most days of our 12 night stay in Kamala. The food and coffee was fantastic and the setting is amazing - set on the rocks by the canal inlet. Our kids loved the banana bread. We came and had a few cocktails one night as well. Loved it.

“Great hidden romantic restaurant overlooking the beach”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

We love the Rockfish and go back every time we are in Phuket. It's a nice, romantic restaurant overlooking the Kamala beach. The food is good, even though it is quite highly priced. But the menu is interesting, kind of asian-fusion with a twist, and the drinks are great too. Lots of fresh ingredients and inspiring mixes. The restaurant is quite small and usually fully booked every night (at least on weekends), so book a table in advance. The best tables are at the terrace edge right over the beach. Staff is friendly, although they can be a bit stressed on busy nights... You can park outside the restaurant on the street, they have a guard. Would definitely recommend this restaurant for friends, couples and groups!
