The fried noodles with seafood were exceptional and other dishes that I tried were also good, as was the service. The views of the Gulf of Thailand were also excellent. Definitely a good place for lunch or dinner.

Our lunch visit here was a pleasant one, indeed. This was our first time to eat at Maelis. The food was delicious, fresh & cooked to order. The owner/chef visited our table to ask about our order, if it was prepared as desired. Great personal touch. We're in Kep for a while longer and will be back to Maelis!
