Beautiful setting with beautiful views. I can't fault Villa Royale, the service, the food, the setting- everything is just wonderful. I have been here three times now and have had an exceptional meal each time. Definitely worth going there.

“Views amazing, food good!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed the views at the beachside view table, service largely good but not as attentive as I was expecting! Good vegetarian options but despite at ordering having a conversation with the waiter to ensure the tofu thai red curry didn't have fish sauce in as I was a strict vegetarian I was presented with a prawn amuse bouche on my plate! The tofu vegetarian curry was however amazing, very tasty! And both desserts we ordered were outstanding - passion fruit crepe and chocolate pudding! Seafood ravioli to start I am also told was amazing! Loved the touch of the red rose! Overall great setting, some really good food, lots of added touches but far and away the most expensive meal we ate in thailand! £75 for two three courses with one alcoholic drink each! But if your not staying at kata noi the views are worth seeing!

“Good View”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Great view from the restaurant, excellent service. We ordered Thai food for lunch , 2 starters, which were good and we ordered Green Curry with prawns. This is my personal taste, being Asian and having eaten Thai food every time I go to Thailand and also in KL, i found the green curry cooked for the western palate. Mild and bland. However for tourists coming from the West , it would be a very kind introduction to Thai food. The food was well presented .

“Great setting, great food”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

What's not to love? Lovely restaurant sitting up on a cliff overlooking Kata Noi Beach. Just the sound of a Thai jazz band and the waves lapping gently on the shore below.

A Thai menu and a European/Aussie menu which you can pick & mix from. The service was excellent, allowing us to chill out in a seating area with a drink whilst choosing our meal, then taking us to the cliff side table. Nothing was too much trouble. Our waiter even 'entertained' our Granddaughter by pointing out gekos and showing her a cicada close up.

The food is superb - my lamb was exquisite!

Make sure you book as its really popular! Its Thai expensive, but not UK expensive, so treat yourself!

“Amazing food and veiws”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

great service and the food was amazing. Had the pad thai and was fantastic. The veiw was like nothing else. A nice cool breeze blowing of the ocean was a perfect complement after wards. The entree was lobster ravioli which was simply delightful. I could have easily eaten it all night.
