It is not very much to say other than that this restaurant is not living up its name! The least smiles i´ve seen in this country. the food was a disappointment and the staff made you feel not welcome and almost nervous to try to get there attention. Thats that. Easy to say that weŕe not going back ( neither... More

A beautifully placed restaurant on the beach , overlooking Koh Phangan, offering lovely fresh thai and western food. Everything was well presented and rated great, we had a selection of thai dishes between the family and everything was spot-on. The choice of inside or outside dining means it covers all bases and plenty of staff on hand to make sure... More

Wide variety of food on offer. Pizzas were undercooked and a bit tasteless. Pasta dishes was undercooked, sauce was watery and lacking in flavour. Cashew chicken was very nice. Maybe instead of having such a big menu they should concentrate on offering fewer dishes and doing them well.

Visited last night. Nice location, partly on the beach and it was busy so thought we would give it a try. Bad choice. Food was bland and basic, very little flavour. I've had better pub grub in a Wetherspoons. Prices were sky high too... I was tempted to leave before ordering and really wish I had, but touched it out.... More

Don't be put off by the picturesque setting by the beach as the terrible service makes the experience very unpleasant. Whilst the food was more that ok (but how hard is it to muck up phad Thai in Thailand) it is not worth the hassle to get out of the restaurant as calculating the bill took over half an hour....

We went here for lunch on a rainy day. The restaurant is large and you can sit inside or outside. The restaurant offers nice beach views. We sat outside but had to move inside as it was windy outside. One of the fruit shake drinks which we ordered contained 4 fruits but we were told we were only permitted 3... More

Some food was decent we had coconut soup which was lovely. Mains were average and came out cold. Over priced for what your eating in thailand and there are much nicer restaurants! View was lovely on the beach, staff very average probably why they add 10% service. We normally top anyway but food was not that great.
