Chose this restaurant for a romantic dinner on our last night in Thailand, and it was a great choice. The view is just amazing and the atmosphere, decor and music choice is all geared towards an incredibly calm and relaxing experience. Such a contrast to the noise and bustle of Patong.

Make sure you get there before sunset and get a table on the terrace. If you can, call early (or a couple days before) and request the corner table for the best view. The terrace faces west so take a seat, grab a drink and chill out watching the sunset. Brilliant.

The service was very good, attentive and helpful. The one downside was probably the food. We ordered the Chef's Recommended Thai Banquet (for 2). It was good, but not great. Nothing particularly wrong with it, but we had eaten better Thai meals during our week in Thailand. It didn't quite line up with the cost of the meal, but really what you're paying for is the view and atmosphere.

I'd still highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a romantic meal or special occasion.

From entrance staircase through reception and first door, you can't imagine view you'll get !!, then open the door and new dimension of the world would splash below your feet, a nice small square of green grass with a bench at the corner and left to right only the ocean, perfect quietude for lunch/diner far from bustle of the city. two more down and you'll will be in Diavolo spectacular view under the shadow of the magnificent certainly very old tree. The huge view from any table outside is really great, large table, comfortable seat, space between each table, a romantic affair can start. Food is more than good, portions are well scaled, taste is generous, ambiance is cosy, wine and beers are at reasonable prices. Service is courteous and efficient. Have diner there, is like if you're millions years of your problem.

We shared a special dinner there with family whom where visiting Phuket. The setting is stunning with magnificent views. Cocktail menu interesting and the food menu choice of Thai or Italian offered. Comfortable chairs for sitting through the meal, a relaxed pace of dining flow, Great restaurant manager there Khun Somchai. Everyone in our group enjoyed their menu selection and the shared platter for starters is great, either Thai or Antipasto style.
If you can get there early for Sunset do, and don't forget to leave room for dessert.
Wines by the glass are offered in abundance which is great.
This plave is perfect for any reason be it a special dinner for two or family reunion like our occassion.

The view is great, architecture is also very nice. The food was okay but not very spectecular. And the price is maybe a bit to high.
The service was just okay.

The rough meandering cliff face drive revealed the exquisite architecture of the main restaurant and reception area, nothing was left to chance by the architect here. This is the most beautiful location, high on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The interior of the restaurant is amazing especially the glass wine cabinet system, opening onto a large outdoor area with stunning views.

We were fortunate to be the only guests there for a late lunch dining on mascarpone, prosciutto and truffle oil pizza with rocket salad,coupled with French champagne it was truly a taste sensation and one of the most memorable dining occasions experienced.

Totally recommend!
