Walked in there off Sairee Beach and had a cocktail for the sunset. The cocktail was okay, so we decided on dinner. Unfortunately it was nothing special considering it was nearly 1000 THB per person. Nice setting though.

Wonderful place to eat during the day or night; views over the bay are breathtaking. I loved the seating arrangements and the way the restaurant was set out. The food was good and the staff excellent.

We went twice to Rim Lae and really loved it the first time. We had bbq and it is a great option as you get a bbq set up on your table and lots of plates with meat, fish and veggie. Perfect for eating out with friends. Because we really liked it we went there another time and were a little disappointed.

I reckon we just were there on the wrong day as everything seemed to go wrong!
First we ordered drinks - my boyfriend chose whiskey sour which was served in a martini glas, seemed that after 2 drams the glass could be empty and it didn't taste like whiskey sour at all. For the quite high price of the cocktail you expect more than that. We told the waiter but he just nodded and went away withour offering anything else or replacing it. When we were ready ordering our main dishes everything we chose - "not have". We asked what they actually have and can recommend but they seemed to be clueless. The food we got in the end was quite good but for us not really reasonable for the prices they have. When we asked for the bill it took ages to sum up, we had the wine from our neighbour's table on the bill. As we mentioned that the 2 girls who were just typing things in the calculator started to giggle. That is a point where we would've expected an apology...nothing. We ended up in calculating ourselves and just leaving the money on the counter as it seemed they were totally confused....not great service for a category of restaurants like that.

While reading all of the other great reviews here, it really seems to me that we just chose a bad day to go there. By the way: the restaurant itself is lovely, great atmosphere for having dinner, really romantic and peaceful!

This place is a must during your stay on the island. Food is great and the place has unique ambiance - eating while sitting on the floor and looking at the bay.
We especially recommend "Bull S**t Shrimp" :)
