Visited here twice, first as a late night quick eat so had seafood spaghetti then second time to taste the seafood on offer...

This this a mix of Italian/Seafood

The staff and setting are second to none, so I would recommend a visit but don't have high expectations. It's rather average.

The seafood spaghetti was over powered by the strong sauce but was tasty none the less.


Second visit we had steak and ordered a couple of BBQ king prawns. My friends prawn was half raw. The steaks were nice and cooked as requested, but the sides were a little bland.


Our starter the salami bruschetta was the winning dish and a must have!


Overall I'd recommend a try as it's a lovely setting and staff are very attentive, but don't expect too much from the food.

Very nice setting, right on the beach. Very good quality food with correct price.
As our first experience was so good, we went back a few days later.
But on both occasions, there were errors in the bill: the first time we were charged a bottle of water we didn't order but the second time,the error was more serious: various items for a total amount of more than 2000 THB were added. Both were immediately corrected after complaining, but still an uneasy feeling remains. So, double check your bill!

Though the restaurant has a good view, the food is very ordinary.. Also, the portions are extremely small.

We had better sea food at other places in Ao Nang..Not worth it..

Well not exactly ordinary, I'd have to say it was the worst Thai food we'd had in two weeks in Thailand, and at double the usual price. The Tom Kha tasted only like slightly sweetened coconut milk and the Massaman curry was bland and lacking in any depth of flavour - the very antithesis of a curry. We felt pretty stupid afterwards as we could have eaten the tasty version of these dishes from street vendors at a fraction of these prices - stuff ambience, vive le flavour!

We went here after reading some reviews but the truth seems to be that the old chef had the good reputation. After changing chef as it is now, it is nothing special. Food was not good and not worth the money. We where disappointed especially when we expected to have something special. We also went to the restaurant of the previous chef and found excellent food in his new italian restaurant 2km up the road,
