Very disappointed with the meal. We were given a voucher for a set meal this time which was nice but if they were trying to impress you to come back they failed miserably. Have been there before several times over the years and it was ok. One of the meals was supposed to be pork ribs. They were barely the... More

Great BBQ seafood and fish restaurant. Good for a change and quality food, but the dinning experience was not as good as other restaurants in the area. Limited options if you don't like fish or seafood, but the giveaway is in the restaurant name... If you like big prawns this is a good place. Good value for a seafood restaurant

To start, it is absolutely recommendable to make a reservation if you want to be seated outside. The seating there is absolutely fabulous. Fresh air, nice palms around you, nice tables, friendly athmosphere, nice view of the bay. another thing it is, when you do not make a reservation. You will be seated "inside", covered area, stonewalls around you. no... More

Admittedly we turned up for dinner without a booking (4 adults, 1 baby) but upon asking for a table we were basically ignored for 10-15 minutes until a table left and we had to clear it ourselves so we could sit down. We were then ignored for another 10-15 minutes without any drinks order being taken. We were definitely not... More

Poor staff lovely location but food dry and tasteless what a shame Heard really good things and read previous review but ... Had an oyster omelette to start which was the best thing but the fish skewer and calamari was really fatty and tasteless So much better around

Lovely outdoor seating nestled under he canopy of mature trees and bordering manicured garden. Gorgeous! Fresh seafood grilled to perfection. Food is seasoned to preference. Excellent flavorful Tom Yam and scrumptious crab spring rolls. Grilled whole fish lacked a kick but that's how we ordered it so can't complain here. Service was the fastest I've experienced in Phuket!!! We returned... More

Food average. Very slow and not attentive personnel and barely understand English. Plus is that it is outside and reasonable prices.

If you feel like fresh seafood try this restaurant out. You order and pay at market price and everything is freshly barbecued . Octopus is great.

Best seafood I've ever had, we kept going back, fantastic prices, dinner and SUPERB cocktails for two for about 25 quid, you can choose your fish and have it cooked any way you like....if you're in Cape Panwa you have to try it!!!

We arrived at our hotel late and jumped on the shuttle to find somewhere to grab a quick dinner. Laem Panwa was quiet, but we thought we'd get served quickly as a result. We were right, and the food was excellent. Cheap, tasty, great variety, and top level service. 5 star experience for us. We were so impressed we came... More
