“Most Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

Absolutely gorgeous food. We were recommended it by our hotel staff and boy did it live up to it's reputation. We had various fish including King Mackerel and Barracuda along with a pot of mussels and a pot of clams. Everything was delicious. Also I had 2 amazing cocktails (the name escapes me) made with lemongrass and chilli...WOW....they blew my socks off. They're pretty (chilli) hot but once you get used to it they're just fabulous. My mouth was pinging with flavours. It's an absolute must. The setting is so very, very romantic.

“Tasty food with great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Wifi works well, vegetables are tasty and the sea food is delicious.

Staff comes often to ask if everything is fine

View on the lagoon is amazing and you can enjoy your drinks on long tail boats that are laying on the sand.

“Awesome atmosphere, fantastic food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

I went here with three friends for a farewell dinner and all four of us absolutely loved it! The atmosphere is very zen, a great view with torches and couches.

The food selection was awesome - with plenty of non seafood options as well if you prefer. They even had western dishes with a Thai twist. We were happy with our meal choices (Pad Thai, Fish & Chips, and Green Curry) and would highly recommend the warm brownie dessert!

A great place to visit if you're looking for a nicer dining experience in Koh Phangan.

“Amazing Setting and Amazing Crab !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The layout and setting of the new location is marvelous! Very cosy with just the right amount of lighting to keep the feel intimate. Love the little boats you can reserve for seating ! Of the many dishes I've sampled here, the yellow curry crab remains my favorite, highly recommended! This Place gets better every time I visit!

“Fabulous food, cocktails, view and hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was the highlight of our hen weekend. Amanda and Lek (the owners) set up a special area for us on the beach and gave us a cocktail making class. The cocktails were absolutely amazing and we had such fun making them all. The dinner was equally as good. We shared a range of starters which we couldn't get enough off, and the seafood main course was full of flavour. My favourite place on Koh Phangan.
