My daughter and I ate dinner here during our trip and we weren't impressed. Mediocre service, food, and ambiance. Typical Kata beach tourist restaurant - nothing special. I wouldn't recommend or go back.

Asked everyone who walked in what they would like to watch and tried to cater to everyone. Lovely food and cocktails for a good price, perfect first night in Phuket.

Great place to relax, but also to have a great time with some sports on. Amazing food and great service, who is on point. Many places you feel like just another customer/guest.. at the tavern, you feel welcome and at "home".
