Worth the little extra for the comfort and ambience of this road side restaurant. Quiet road so no hustle and bustle of traffic at the end of April. Highly... More

This seaside restaurant is a lovely place to enjoy a quiet meal with friends. The food is cooked to perfection and the menu has a good variety in the event you don't wish to eat local cuisine. The proprietor and staff are very friendly and restaurant clean and orderly.

Stayed in Bang Tao Beach as a group, but on this evening just two of us were eating. Called on spec and were able to get a table straight away. Attentive service and good food arrived quickly.

We went in just before closing time and although the staff welcomed us smiling before we had eaten they were eagerly waiting for us to leave which did not feel very nice. Food was rather average and expensive.

We went here for New Year's Eve with the 2 kids (7 & 8) and had a great time - low key and they were happy for us to order a la carte when most places were only doing set menus which aren't great with kids. Got to recommend the carpaccio to start and the pepper steak which were both... More
