The chef has a 5 years experience in hotels at Sainte Maxime in South of France, and the menu is quite interesting. You have a large choice of Thai or international dishes, and great French dishes (desserts are fantastic, especially the home made hot chocolate melt). Good experience and good value for money.

The pizzas are delicious - wonderful light, crispy bases and excellent toppings. the lamb one and the pork ones are particularly good (sorry - I can't recall the exact names!). Also had pasta on a second visit - ravioli came in a nice creamy lemony sauce. Duck fettuccine was pretty spicy, but packed full of flavour. Would go back

I ordered mine with Massaman curry paste, spinach and Thai basil, topped it up with anchovies and tiger prawns. Prompt and friendly service.The staffs were very attentive, one brought my son a...

Overall some of the worst "Italian themed" food that I have had the misfortune to eat anywhere. From the ice cold red wine served in a dirty glass to the garlic bread with no taste it was a disaster from beginning to end. My partner had a pizza and described it as "tasteless". I had marinara pasta, some of the... More

We spent nearly 2 weeks at the hotel so ate breakfast here twice, lunch a couple of times and dinner three times. The location is pretty nice - 50 odd metres back from the sea, the prices were reasonable, the pizza is done in a brick oven; it was tasty but the base wasn't quite right ... reminded of a... More

Lovely setting and a great varied menu. The gnocci with Gorgonzola and walnut cream is to die for and their pizzas are lovely. Great thin and crispy with lots of topping choice. Book the waiter is great and very attentive. Love how you can see them cooking as the kitchen is open. A must in Mai Khao

there fish and seafood are always fresh and very good value for money. You can eat thai or European. They have an agreement with some hotels and BBS, they pick you up for free and later take you back home

First of all, I applaud the kitchen staff on the high quality of food they put out... The pasta cooked perfectly and the pizzas incredible! However, they are let down terribly by the serving staff. Tonite I decided I wanted a simple steak dinner...neither complicated nor elaborate. Well after waiting for over 45 minutes, and witnessing two tables who arrived... More
