great bar, we only popped in for a quick drink after an afternoon on the beach, but a thunderstorm rolled in and we ended up staying all night, had a whole grilled fish which was very tasty and great value, all reasonably priced

Had food and drinks here and very sure gave me the worst food poisoning in my entire life. I was even admitted into hospital still on Phuket which cost hundreds of GBPs and days on I'm still recovering. I can now joke that that was the most expensive burger I've ever bought! ... I'd recommend you go to one of... More

Went twice in last couple of days.its at the end of beach and seating arrangement is unique. Very casual bar, beers are not pricey,beach looks great from there. Staff was calm. Ordered some sides and salmon in lemon sauce, both were good. They are open till late and music isn't too loud so ideal place to strike conversation!

I was expecting it to be a little different / bigger. It's a super nice spot with a great view and super friendly staff! They don't serve food but there is a restaurant right beside it with the same view and just as great service ! Neat place to sit listening and stare at the waves while enjoying a nice... More

Went here for a drink several times during our stay, and ate there once. Great atmosphere with reggae music, fabulous cocktails and cold beers.

My friends and I visited the bar area and the restaurant on 2 occasions while in Kata. On both occasions the food and drinks were great. The vibe is fantastic. There's nothing better than enjoying a drink and a nice meal right on the water. The staff were lovely.

We had lunch here. Nice position overlooking kata beach. The Thai food we ordered was good however the two bbq seafood dishes we ordered were terrible. Rubbery prawns that tasted very strange. Stick to the Thai food

We popped in to refuel and seek shelter from the rain. The food was awesome! Though there was a mix-up on one of the items that we ordered, the waiter was good about I and proceeded to change the wrong item without kicking up a fuss. They serve a mean egg omelette! Portion sizes could have been bigger though.
