“Good Food”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

A nice restaurant overlooking the beach. My wife and I went there twice...once for lunch and once for dinner. Good food, just a little pricey.

“Still great 12 months later”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

We visited this restaurant in Sept 2010 it is part of Cloud 19 Beach Retreat, both the food and views are outstanding, the service is world class fine dining. Highly recommend if you are looking for something a bit special away from the hustle and bustle of towns on Phuket. Quiet, relaxing and definitely worth the trip! A short drive from phuket town near the novotel at chalong bay.

“5 Star view - 0 Star service @ F&B Restaurant Lainapa”
Reviewed April 16, 2011

We want to celebrate a nice evening at the Lainapa Restaurant, into the Cloud19 Hotel. There was only 1 other table occupied and we were the No 2. As many customers ask me for made inspection of this restaurant, I do it with my friend - last night. But I'm very very disapointed from at all.
First: We ordered 4 starters. We get Spring-Rolls cooked in old oil and there was not able to eat. We ordered calamares-rings, but we received other stuff. The main course
we ordered Salmon-Grilled-Steak and Australian-Tenderloin-Steak. The fish was o.k.
The Steak was good, but the red-wine-sauce horrible - we ask for butter-sauce, (like
hollandaise or bearnaise) they send us garlic-sauce. We ordered Gratin of Potatoes, (is written in the menu they have), but we received mushed-potatoes. We ordered 1 bottle of champagne - they fill my glass so quickly up, for let's me know: please drink and go. My friend ask for a cocktail after the dinner for seating to the beach. But when we ask for the cocktail, they refuse, because of the restaurant will be closed. Time: 22 pm. So we seat to the beach finish our Champagne and water - no more service. 30 Minutes later, the staff presented us the bill (THB 4220.--) and ask us for to leave. NEVER EVER I had a such bad and poor service in a restaurant in Thailand. As I'm Supervisor for a travel-company - I NEVER can recommande this restaurant for others. They wrote in their webside: romantic dinner, romantic cocktails,... but the staff only like to serve us fast
and let us pay and go. Is that Thai-Culture? Is that Thai-Friendship? Sorry, No - and as least, when we go, it was 22.50 pm only (!!!) the male staff not say good bye - just think,
he is happy to close the restaurant. We was very very disapointed from this style of service - and we are sure, that the managment don't know how their staff working out.
For example when we stay at Nai Yang Beach (only a small thai-restaurant, with no name), they know the service, they know to take care the customers and can seat an take a good breeze of the sae until midnight or later. But in Lainapa we HAVE TO GO at 22.50 pm because we are not desirable at this restaurant like a customer.
