I had a great steak with a nice view. Totally worth going. They were friendly and prepared the food with care.

We came here for a late lunch and we were not disappointed by the view, maybe because there was no one else, the staff were sleeping, it's ok, I don't mind, they came to help us as soon as we sat down and started cooking as soon as we ordered. The food was good, I had a fried curry, which... More

I know it sounds like an exaggeration but from start to finish this was the best experience we had eating in Thailand. They provide a taxi service to take you to and from the restaurant as it's a little hard to find on your own. The service is exceptional and the wait staff we friendly, attentive, and always there to... More

Went here with 5 friends. 3 ordered steak and all of them were disappointed. No one finished their meal. The meat was nicely prepared but drenched in a sauce that tasted very badly. Two of us had fish, which was tasteless. The fries were just dry. One of my friends had a Thai dish, which was ok, but the prawns... More

Given the good reviews, we went there for dinner. We called the restaurant and their driver could pick us in short time. As it was already dark and little bit of rain, we couldn't see much from inside the restaurant. It was all black outside, so think it's better to go there during the day/before sunset. We ordered the infamous... More

The restaurant provides free pick up service. We asked our reception to call them and it worked fine. It was a bumpy ride and a small one car road. The views are definetly worth it! We had shrimps as appetizer (good) and steaks (about 400 baht each) (perfect!) Very friendly staff.

We came here for lunch and it was kinda cloudy all day but we still got to see an amazing view of Chalok Bay. Both my husband and I had steak and it was pretty good. The drinks were amazing as well. We wanted to go here at sunset because we read how beautiful it was but it was suppose... More

This is the highest restaurant on Koh Tao. Out hotel arranged for the restaurant to pick us up and drop us off after ... free of charge, courtesy of Lung Pae. The food was good although I wouldnt recommend the steaks as I've defitniely had far better back home. The cocktails and Thai food was delicious. However, it’s the view... More
