We had dinner here on our last night in Patong. It was a lovely restaurant - the food was delicious, the service was great, the location is gorgeous at sunset. A bit pricier than any other restaurants in the area but not overly expensive. Would go back again.

Pros: Good location on the beach. Tasty clean food.
Cons: Terrible service. They really want you to spend as much money as possible. And if you don't look like a big spender, they ignore you the rest of the evening.

Also, we ordered the Pad Thai, and they didn't even use the proper rice noodles.
All in all, a very average place. Just with a nice view.

As the latin expression goes: "Caveat emptor": Let the buyer beware...

The service here is very very good.
Lovely views across the bay and live entertainment.
Not cheap but not expensive. If you are at The Novotel or B Lay it's right across the road.
Good option for your first night in North Patong while you get the lie of the land worked out

We ended up leaving the restaurant before we got all our food. First we had to hunt down a waiter to take our orders. We quickly found out that the price on the seafood was extremely high but as this restaurant was recommended here on trip advisor we decided to give it a go. They got our drink orders wrong and when they finally came the mango daquiri had no alcohol. I asked the waiter and the guy said it had alcohol but then a waiter behind him signalled to him that there was very little alcohol in it. We then got our thai starter sampler and it was terrible. No taste just fried. Then while we were eating the starter we got our vegetables for our main meal, so it was cold by the time the rice came. Our seafood was nowhere in sight so we decided to start eating the rice and vegetables (also tasteless) and asked the waiter for the rest of our food. The prawns came eventually (by now rice and vegetables were cold) but the sauce was not what we ordered. We sent the prawns back after a lot of discussions with the staff which was near impossible due to the fact that the staff didnt speak any english besides the guy who had seated us, but he said to us that he couldnt communicate with the other staff either because he didnt speak thai(!). So we asked for the bill and left. They made us pay for the drinks and vegetables and the starter but took away the 10% service charge. Which was fair enough.
