The Hill Top is high up on the side of a hill with some spectacular views at sunset and great food after the sun goes down. The staff are well trained and attentive. They have been schooled to spead out and stand & watch. Then they can pounce if they think you need something. Thai smiles and friendly politeness abound. The restaurant is owned by a guy from Hong Kong. The supervisor is called Boom and he knows his job well. Unlike some places in Thailand where, once it is built, it immediately starts to look shabby and unmaintained, this is clean and smart.

There are a number of photo opportunities next to the eating area and a singer of light jazz style to accompany your meal. We sat outside with a great view, but there is undercover seating and some up stairs in the main building.

Good food, I had the chicken & beef steak and my wife had the king size prawns.

We would go again. You should try it.

The road up to the hilltop is steep and they will collect you from your hotel and take you back. Or, like us, you can drive your hire car up there.

A VERY pleasant evening with no rush and a relaxed atmosphere.

Krabi,in my opinion is as rustic as it could get. Well, what could one ask for when its purely a a laid back town where you kick back, relax..and have nothing on your mind!

Travelling with a family of 5 adults and 2 children, we decided to have a nice dinner on our final night. We stayed at one of the villas under Krabi Villas ( Villa Saifon ) and had a great experience there. Under their recommendation, we dined at Hilltop Restaurant. By the time kids got ready and adults prepared it was sun down! Unfortunately we missed the sunset entirely..which is perhaps the main highlight for dining at the Hilltop. Nevertheless, we went ahead, in the darkness and tried to appreciate whatever is left.

The food was miserable to be honest, more fine dinning with portions that will leave a 4 year old feeling hungry! Given the price and standards of food, i would give it a miss if not for the view. I would perhaps, have a cuppa and take in the good view from the top but nope, not for the food.

We arrived by courtesy bus from the town and were warmly greeted by the staff - the views are amazing and you would be best to arrive in time to catch the sunset .
If you are celebrating a special occasion - book ahead and let the management assist you . The duck is tender and the best we have tasted , the French oysters superb . The menu is extensive and drinks are well catered . This is a food lovers experience . Great food , great service and fantastic location
