“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

The setting was amazing, you could either sit inside or outside overlooking the water... definitely go outside if you can. The food was the best we had on the island. Staff was friendly and attentive.

“Romantic with superb food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

One of our best meals in Thailand. Go for Thai signature dishes. The mix of local herbs they add to some of the dishes is like nothing I've tasted before. You can't beat the atmosphere with traditional low thai tables right under the stars, the sound of crushing waves and chill lounge music. Perfection!

“Brillant location but disappointing service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

3 of us went for dinner. The restaurant is over the rocks and the view of thewaves crashing was awesome. We all enjoyed our cocktails but one of our starters had bits of bone in it. We were disappointed with the service, including the failure to clear starter dishes until requested to on the arrival of our main courses which were less than inspiring. We asked to speak to the manager but the wasn't one.

It's quite a walk up to the carpark to meet the cab and ther was a serious lack of sign posting. The bill was disappointingly high and more expensive than we had paid for far better meals locally.

“Nice view with poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

There is no doubt that the view is incredible but it seems this is what you are paying for. Some meals come out cold and they reheated the same dish and we had to pay for it! This was the most expensive meal in 2 weeks of Thailand and the worst. Seafood was dry and flavourless and chicken satay store (told by staff) bought not freshly made.

“wonderful view and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

We stopped in charm churi villa within two nights, and we really enjoyed this restaurant this time. It is a magnificent view, we admired the sunsets and enjoyed the food. The fish snapper, the royal shrimps, the spring beaters - everything is very tasty. Definitely one of the best restaurants in which we were in Thai.
