Having visited the restaurant on the beach a fortnight ago whilst on our honeymoon, my husband and I found this to be our single worst experience of our entire trip to Thailand. We were hoping to sample some good seafood and during a stroll along the Chaeweng beach we noticed the restaurant at this resort offering a delicious seafood barbecue meal option for 2500 baht per couple (roughly £45) including a glass of wine each which seemed pretty reasonable and in comparison to other prices in the area, would indicate a meal of a reasonably good standard.
The 'seafood' consisted of, undercooked red snapper that was so slimy and gelatinous that it turned our stomach, chewy overcooked lobster,stone cold squid that was worryingly inedible, cold prawns that were rubbery and dry, mussels that we're equally hideous and our 'hot' jacket potatoes with butter and herbs were completely raw and freezing cold.
We wouldn't usually go into such detail and rarely make complaints but our response from the management when we complained was appalling. An initial waiter offered to cut 20% off our bill despite the fact we had eaten barely 10% of our meal and when we asked to see the manager he was very rude and stated that he would take 10% off the bill and this was non-negotiable unless we wanted to have another seafood platter which was clearly out of the question at which point we were given the bill and practically escorted from the table, hungry, offended and a little nauseous.
There are so many great places to eat in this area and for a lot less money that I would really advise to avoid this place completely...unless you don't mind terrible service and horrible food.
