Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited again after 3 years, and then we had such a great experience that we returned three days later again with a larger group. Everything was perfect. The location is atmospheric, lovely, and on the posher side (no stray dogs, no backpacking crowd, quiet,...chill). Food is excellent and imaginative, drinks are delicious. They have a selection of thai and western food and we had a variety of combinations, all food excellent. Service is very nice, polite, helpful servers and great management. Make sure you get a table "outside" (that is, under the canopys) for the best atmosphere and front row seats for the waves hitting the rocks in the bay. Thoroughly recommend, and will return next year.More

Not worth it at all if you're staying in saree beach. The restaurant is too far and once you get there you have to walk like 5 minutes up and down stairs to get to the place. The view is the sea, which you get...is saree beach.More

We came here for Christmas dinner from another hotel. Appreciate the free shuttle service. This night they served a buffet which was decent, nice grilled shrimps and show cooking etc. The service was below average of the waiters serving at the table.

Fantastic food and outstanding service. Our group of 9 for a Sunday dinner buffet had a great time. The BBQ was fantastic, great side dishes and yummy desserts! The desserts stood out as they were small sized so you could sample a couple without feeling...(too) guilty :). Really nice setting and the service staff & cooks did a fantastic job making sure we had everything we need and were very friendly. Thanks to everyone at The Cape for a wonderful evening!More

An extensive menu, generous portions and friendly staff. What more do you need? Oh yes.... great view of the bay and Buddha rock and special menus on selected evenings such as barbeques. The offerings are also a good mix of Eastern and Western dishes and...with plenty of options for the veggie contingent.More

I'm very careful with restaurants in resorts or hotels but this one is a gem and worth every Barth that its maybe higher than outside in other restaurants. Very great food and excellent and very friendly service. We will not take more chances eating anywhere...else outside the resort :)More

We had a nice meal here in beautiful setting. Service is pleasant and not too slow. The reason for the 4 stars is that they forgot to serve a side we ordered and the salad starter was a bit too oily. Overall a fine meal...though. I recommend the cashew chicken and the prawn wraps.More

Everything about this place is a cut above the local competition. It's the restaurant at the View Point Resort but open to everyone. The setting right next to the sea is very relaxing and the background music is subtle so you can still hear the...waves against the rocks. Lighting is low and service charming and professional. It's classy without being too fussy and formal. The quality of ingredients also stands out here. The rice was by far the best we've eaten and the shrimps in one dish were huge. The red curry included grapes, pineapple and lychees along with the bitter pea eggplants and kaffir lime leaves - sounds strange but the combination was delicious. Even the vegetables were varied and prepared perfectly. Dishes are a little pricier than other restaurants but what you get is a proper grown up night out rather than a quick refueling pit stop. It's worth going out of your way to come here. My only criticism would be I like my curries spicier but I didn't request this when ordering. If you're the same make sure you mention it.More

We had dinner here two nights. Service was great, from an English speaking staff. The first night we ordered tempura shrimp, sea bass, and cashew nut chicken from the menu. The second night was the theme night with an excellent buffet. Service was excellent from...an English speaking staff. The bar made good cocktails and had a nice selection of wine. Great view, overlooking Chalok Bay.More

Everything we had from starters to dessert was very good. Pricier for Thailand prices, but still reasonable considering how much more is spent for a normal dinner out in say the US. Get yourself a nice bottle, the wine list is great!
