“The Jewel In Rawai”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We are two couples from Australia, have been to Rawai only last year but saw this new Restaurant early morning before opening and said immediately just on appearance, "We have to go there!!!" So overwhelmed by the Restaurant, Food( Taste and PRESENTATION!!), The Staff and the owners, Lu and Ed. Sadly, last day here, but will look forward to our return to Rawai in October if only to come back to Lugar de Place. Work in hospitality in Australia and took so many photos to show people back home how it should be done. A++++.

“Dont miss this Gem in Rawai”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We recently returned to Rawai and revisited Lugar de Place many times and were not disappointed. Beautifully cooked and imaginatively presented food in lovely surroundings.
The team under the management of Lu and Edgar are friendly, knowledgeable with the
very efficient and helpful Khun Pong overseeing all. On the Western menu you will
find the best salmon available ( for very reasonable Price) in Rawai. The Thai menu is
excellent, do try their giant prawns in garlic - to die for !! The prices are very good value
and they offer a little voucher on leaving for a free cocktail next vist. Try to go on the music
nights, great fun and great sounds. We look forward to returning.

“WHERE ALL THE FUN BEGINS!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We're here at the karaoke night. Not much people attended but , we still had fun. I heard one customer said. "One of the most memorable night of my life". The food is great , staff are very kind and friendly. Good music that night, chosen musics were great to boost up our night , we got energized. Cool place to hang out. Peaceful. Great setting. Owners are getting in touch with the customers. "A MUST VISIT WHEN YOU'RE IN PHUKET". FIVE STAR. GREAT RESTAURANT.

“Fantastic food and service at incredible price”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Ate there 3 nights ago, going back tonight.
Amazing staff, excellent food, very reasonably priced.
A gem amongst the usual scruffy, sticky (has proper aircon!) tat found in Rawai.

“Only average”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Modern setting but not nice outside as directly close to Rawai Beach Road. Inside very clean interior, all white and modern with some LED lights to bring some colour in. Open kitchen. Staff very nice but rather incompetent. The menu is very small - just a few Thai dishes and a few international dishes, rather overpriced. The food comes nicely prepared but tastes like nothing. We had Thai food and there was no taste , no spice at all in it.Drinks are completely overpriced, all in all not bad, clean, but really nothing special and from the variety and taste far behind any Thai roadside eatery (which by the way does not necessarily have worse standards in hygienic things). If you want to go to a restaurant for food this is not a good choice, too uninspired, if you want to meet other farangs, every bad next to it is better, if you have small children then it could be a good choice as there is A/C inside and they have some toys and books for children and are rather children friendly.
English spoken rather well.
