Whilst not for those on a budget, the food service and atmosphere at this restaurant are well worth it. We had dinner here and the ambience is lovely. Lunch with the view would be lovely too. The free pick up and drop off from our hotel was helpful and worthwhile given the remote location!

We made use of the free taxi service to get to the restaurant which when we got there looked amazing especially the view from the table!

When we was given the menu there was nothing I particularly fancied! And when my friend had gone there for the monkfish & was told this was "finished" he was very disappointed! He then chose the baby chicken which was also "finished" - instead of eating here due to the fact there wasn't much to choose from & even more when they didn't have what they had on the menu! We decided to leave!

If you want to pay high prices for a very limited menu this is the place to go!

Utilized their free taxi service, very convenient. Driver came and picked up my wife and I at our hotel. Just had to call ahead and make a reservation.

The view of the bay was fantastic at sunset. Service by staff was prompt and friendly.

The food was abolutely divine. We ordered the salmon carpaccio and calimari for starters, both were out of this world delicious. We then had the monkfish and sea bass for entrees, both were well executed and had great balance in flavors. We then moved to desert, by then I was too full to finish. Definitely order the creme brulee made wish fresh vanilla.

Not cheap, but considering that it is a fine dining establishment, with an awesome view of the bay, you would pay hundreds of dollars in the states or Japan for the same quality of dishes. Yet, for 2 people, we each had starters, entrees, deserts, cocktails and wine, and spent just under 3,000 baht. I thought it was a bargain. I definitely recommend for couples who want a view and an excellent dining experience.

It's amazing, we had some wagu mini sliders with melted Brie caramelised onions and shallot onion rings, the fresh fries were dusted with seaweed. Then we also had some INCREDIBLE (freshly caught) crab tacos with the most amazing summer truffle guacamole. It was so good. We only found it accidentally but right next to the restaurant there is a cove with grass shaded in Palm with a drop going straight over onto the rocks. It is dotted with coupled floor loungers and tables with lemongrass candles, it was meant to be a pit stop but we stayed until we were bitten raw by the mozzies before we retired back to our hotel. It's really lovely. GREAT FOOD. The taxi service isn't great, but the staff are so lovely. Definitely recommend, best place On the island for food.

Perfect if you fancy treating yourself a bit. It's a bit out of the way, so if you are not staying at their resort, definitely utilise the free taxi service you get when you book a table. The food was amazing. And the view makes it even better. worth a visit.
