“Average”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

Just returned from dinner at this restaurant. My personal experience of the food is it is very average. Nothing exceptional by any means. We ate outside in the garden setting with very basic plastic table and chairs. We ordered 2 starters and 2 main courses and beers. The food was edible but nothing memorable. This was our first night in Hua Hin having arrived from a 3 day stay in Bangkok. We ate in much more basic and cheaper places which had far tastier food, and where I would return. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
Tip: if you do go try not to sit under the trees as the birds have a tendancy to crap on you! This happened twice to us during our one and only visit. The first time bird dropping landed in my husbands dinner, and if that wasn't bad enough 30 minutes later it happened again on his shirt. Not very appealing!

“Charming spot, friendly service. Shame about the owner”
Reviewed May 18, 2011

Unlike the previous two reviewers, we had no problems with service at this restaurant. The staff were helpful and attentive, the setting in a garden quite lovely.

The food was very acceptable - I do not claim to be a gourmand - and portions generous, seasoned to suit a farang palate.

The musicians, a Filipino couple, were good and above the standard we encounter in restaurants in Chiang Mai where the standard ranges between poor and diabolical. Some acknowledgement of our presence by the owner would have been polite - the restaurant was near empty and we were sitting at the next table - but such courtesies were reserved for the owners friends as they drifted in during the evening. The owner should remember who is paying for her drinks and the significant amounts of food that passed over her table.

“Very mediocre”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

Sorry to say the place has gone downhill since the garden has grown, the food is now just not a patch on what they were famous for (very mediocre) as for the service, the staff seem to avoid eye contact in case they have to take an order.
A ship with no captain comes to mind.
We will return just for the Mojito’s very good but very slow if you are alone you must order 3 at a time we waited 9 minutes for two.
Sit in the front the service is much better.

“Very Dissapointing”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

Was really looking forward to dining here after missing it on our previous visit .
Really dissapointed - Nice gargen setting , Service was nearly non existent - staff probably out numbered customers but still took 15 mins to get someones attention to get a drink. All seemed more interested in chasing a lizard from under a table .
Spring rolls were overcooked and actually falling apart - rest of meal crab omlette was the pick of four dishes the other three average at best.
I didnt like the soliciting by the owner on some German tourists at the next table to post a favourable review on this site - giving them step by step instructions was a bit much

“Nice setting”
Reviewed March 21, 2011

The setting is great. Outdoor garden and live.
music. The service was patchy, slow to get attention to order a drink or food. Couple of the dishes were good the other couple just ok. Does the setting make up for the service and mixed food?
