We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Salary Bua. The restaurant fronts onto the beach, but is set sufficiently back to make it feel private. The wood fired pizza oven and the chef produced some of the best pizzas I have ever had! Friendly and helpful staff made the lunch at delightful time.

We went back to Sala Bula and took the whole family. There were 8 of us, we came over for my parents in law's 40th wedding anniversary. Delicious food and great location - they all loved it! We had raved about the salmon salad and they were not disappointed.

Great restaurant tucked away at the back of the hotel. Beautiful view of the ocean. Unfortunately the prawns we ate were under cooked... We didn't have a great night ....

A stunning beachfront location. We witnessed a beautiful sunset. Worth arriving in time to view. We opted for the Buffet meal which was extensive and beautifully presented. A real bonus was finding a decent red wine, not cheap by NZ prices but worth the extra dollars. It was not a busy night but the wait staff were very good. Friendly... More

Ate here many times throughout my stay at Impiana. The staff was very attentive, and the general manager (?I think?) was very nice - he always had some great travel advice. The chef even made chicken rice soup like mother used to make when I wasn't feeling well one of the days. Also, the view of the ocean is gorgeous.... More

This is a gem among all the party places along Patong Beach. With a beach front location, you sit outside listening to the waves, while enjoying food and drinks. They serve a mix of local and Western food, all tasty and well prepared. We came with a big group, and they catered well for that. I will gladly come again.
