If you wanna have the best italian pizza in Koh Chang, you just can find it there. I visit Koh Chang three years already and I always come a lot of times in here to eat my most favourite pizza. Not just the pizza even the Thai food is one of the best I tried. The owners, Edwin and his wife are leading the restaurant together. They and the waiters fulfill every wish of the costumers and the service is very friendly and you never need to wait a long time for your order, what actually is not typical for Thailand :) The restaurant looks very beautiful and charming, the toilet is clean, there also is a children playground and for adults there is a free pooltable. After the nice meal you also have the possibility to enjoy a real Italian icecream and to take a nice drink and the bar.
Its a real must to come in here.
Thank you Mak Mak from my side and I surely will come again.

“Excellent for families”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Ate at this restaurant on our last night in Kai Bae and we regretted that we had not found it earlier. Reason being is that not only do they serve great food, at a reasonable price, but they have a children's playground at the back of the restaurant. We sat in the restaurant for about 3 hours (usually we are in and out of a restaurant within an hour with a 3 year old), ate our meal in piece, had an uninterrupted conversation, whilst our son happily played with a bunch of other kids in the playground - what a fabulous place!

We tried Regina pizza in that restaurant - so it was so great to find a real pizza on koh-chang. But if you prefer thai foods, this restaurant is the best choise - whatever you order everything is ecxellent.

“Best food of our stay in Koh Chang”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

I followed the reviews from here to this restaurant. This restaurant is located at Kai Bae Beach area, south of a hotel called The Stage. Very easy to find, and we were instantly greeted kindly by the owner of the restaurant. We ordered 3 warm dishes: Stir-fried prawns with garlic, Green curry with chicken and Yellow curry with beef.
I have to say this was the most authentic thai flavours we had in Koh Chang. Just the right amount of chili in the curries and very creamy with fresh coconut milk.
The ambience was really nice too with outdoor seatings and you can gaze at the main street while eating. We could even see the owner in action with taking the orders and expediting. It really felt like it was very organized and everyone was in a good mood. The service was really kind and the food came out rather fast and the presentation was really pretty, with coconut cream and fresh basil sprinkled on top of the curry.
3 warm dishes, 2 rice and 2 fruit shakes for 750BHT. Totally worth every piece of baht.
No doubt the best dining experience of our stay in Koh Chang.
Looking forward to coming back to Koh Chang and try the green curry again!
